Our last lesson for this term was about HONESTY. We started out as usual with learning a new quote (see quote of the week on the right). As it spoke about adorning ourselves with honesty, we cut out the quotes and ‘adorned’ them – decorating, beautifying with stickers, coloured paper, glitter and colouring in – to our hearts content 🙂
We played a shape game, where the teacher says a sequence of shapes (ie. circle, square, triangle, etc), and the students have to try and memorise it, and then repeat it. To make it a bit simpler for our varied ages in class, we used flash cards. (The children also wanted to test the teacher – yikes, not as easy actually! 😉 )
For our story we read The Berenstain Bears and the Truth. A great little story, where Brother and Sister Bear learn a good lesson about telling the truth….
To finish off our last lesson before the school holidays, the children had to solve some puzzles – all 10 quotes they memorised over the last 10 lessons in this term were cut up into strips, and they had to put them back together again. they got a little notebook to glue them all into, and keep them safe – and maybe look at them again over the holidays, so we don’t forget them all already 🙂
A pdf of the complete quotes can be downloaded here.
We didn’t quite have time to do our colouring in today, but have a look at the lesson pdf here – it’s got a colouring in page in there for those of you who want to finish it at home.
See you all after the school holidays, we’re back on the 25th of July.
