03.11.2022 Weekly Highlights + Nihao Recipe
Updated: Aug 24, 2022
This week we continue to focus on healthy food. Children are asked to identify the colors of the food, and work on projects that help them develop social and fine motor skills. They also learned to "cook" Chinese hot pot by throwing in pretend food in the mix. When the food is fully cooked, each child is to spoon-feed their doll-friend from a bowl. We also made food out of air clay and play dough, and practice handwriting on sandpapers. We hope this weekend everybody will enjoy healthy food with family!
