On February 26, Ms. Alison read an article in a Singapore newspaper about how local school students were helping to clean their classrooms. She shared the article with our class, who responded with excitement and enthusiasm.
Following our suggestions and enthusiasm, Ms. Alison collected some cleaning supplies for us. This week, we followed through on our ideas and cleaned our classroom. We showed amazing dedication and excitement for this task - dusting, wiping, sweeping, and scrubbing with all our strength. What great action K1.2! And what a great demonstration of your sense of responsibility.
Some of the curriculum connections and desired learning outcomes of this project include:
Recently we were featured on the ISS ES Action as Service website with an example of our project. This example showed us writing 'thank you' notes to Miria for teaching us ballet!
