This week we celebrated the International Day of Peace which will officially be celebrated worldwide on September 21. Grade 4 hosted a game for us where we learned about some of the symbols of peace: love hearts and peace signs. We searched in the playground for these symbols. We also read Todd Parr's The Peace Book so that we could understand the meaning of peace a little better.
After we had collected all of the love hearts and peace signs, we brought them back to our classroom. We started to talk about how some of them were the same and some were different. First we sorted them into 2 groups: hearts and peace signs. Then we noticed that these symbols were different colours, so we sorted them into 4 groups: pink hearts; red hearts; peace signs with green, blue, pink and purple; and peace signs with yellow, pink, blue, and orange. We are becoming very good sorters!
We are a group of Kindergarten 1 students at an IB World School in Singapore. Our teacher is Miss Alison. Follow us on our blog and Twitter to see how much we're learning and growing!
