Bela's Journal Report: January 5-8, 2010

I can’t remember the last time I posted a Journal Report of Bela from school so I will just start with her first journall report for 2010.

January 5 – 8, 2010

Dear Mommy & Daddy,

Happy New Year! We would like to extend our warmest greetings to everyone. It is the first month of the year 2010 and we are excited to learn again. It is a new year indeed and that means new exciting lessons and activities for us.

Our theme for this month is about transportation. This week, we discussed land transportation. We enjoyed making paper mosaic of different land transportation as well as playing and exploring different kinds of it. We already introduced the medial letters /a/ and /e/. At first, the kids were confused but as we got along with the discussions they were able to get the concept of medial letters. In Math, we introduced the concept of comparing sets: equal or not equal. The kids were excited to sort objects according to their set. We also learned the concept of number that comes after. We were able to review numbers and counting numbers in order.

We are just on our first week in school and we still have more in the coming weeks. We look forward to more exciting activities ahead of us.
