We are putting our pre-schoolers’ knowledge of the five senses to the test by creating a pairing game. By using the 2Simple DIY app on the iPads, the preschoolers import clipart pictures on the five senses as well as the objects they would use them on. The app does the rest by taking our project and turning it into a pairing game. The objective is that the pairs need to be matched. The cards are laid out in a grid face down. The pre-schoolers tap on two cards at a time to flip them over. They then need to match the pairs, e.g. Ear = music, Nose = flower. We are so proud of our pre-schoolers as they really impress us with their understanding of the five senses.
“Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right.” Wade Boggs
To all the Dads out there, we would like to wish a happy Father’s day. Thank you for all the dedication, inspiration, words of warmth, motivation and unconditional love. You are our true mentors and guardians.
We wanted to give our pre-schoolers the opportunity to take a new approach in making their Father’s day cards by using our 2Publish software. We are very proud of the little works of art and hope that they will bring joy to the fathers everywhere.
Facial Features…this week’s focus for our Grade 1 & 2 learners. In 2DIY, a do it yourself program our learners learnt how to label the different facial features. For example: eyes, nose, mouth etc. They had to draw a picture of their face and write the correct labels. Learners could add their own creative touch by using different paint tools, colours and shapes. Once they had finished drawing their faces, we then proceeded to drag the respective label to the correct place on the face. This activity was beneficial for learner’s identification and spelling skills and created a great platform for a future lesson when learners will be learning how to label the face in Afrikaans.
