The children in our class enjoy sharing things with me very much. This is no exception, the school take three days off for the Chinese traditional Qingming festival (清明节). Qingming festival, it is spring back to the earth, people sweep the tomb, a young and old in the middle reaches of the nature, home conveniently fold a few branches and leaves bud of willow branches on his head, happy.

Also, some people specially during the Qingming festival to nature to enjoy and appreciate the vibrant spring scenery, watching the spring scenery. We Taizhou area in many places and dragon boat racing, dragon dance and other traditional activities, so most of the children choose and their parents to visit, observe all kinds of activities.

After returning from the holiday, many students shared their photos with the class. We sat together and talked to each other about the fun of the holiday and the beauty we enjoyed. Then find a quiet environment to record your feelings, easy to share with you.

The thinking child- Building understanding of the world

2017, 3 years old, 4 years old, Dear You Art Workshops, Singapore, South AfricaArlene TuckerComment

Children were conversing about hearing the Rooster crow in the mornings. But did they really hear the rooster crow or was it something they have read from books? (In Singapore, we do not have farms. We could probably find chickens at the Singapore Bird Park). They shared that sometimes they hear things but don’t get to see the things. E.g. noisy garbage truck,  birds chirping, dogs barking. The children were given an opportunity to think about their individual environment  and the noises heard. Even the noises heard at school differ from that at home and sometimes similar. Children expressed themselves through drawing (paper, markers and pencils) and spoke about them.

Warm Regards,

How many sounds are there?!?!

2017, 5 years old, Dear You Art Workshops, United Kingdom, United Arab EmiratesArlene TuckerComment

The children were surprised at how many different sounds there were! Some children said our world is very noisy and that wouldn't it be sad if we couldn't hear. We wondered if our friends in United Arab Emirates would hear the same sounds.
