ENGLISH:
For our open house, the kids prepared a Farmer´s Market.

To start the day, the children had a Happy Session (social-emotional program), where the parents were able to participate in this activity which teaches them to be present, breathe and feel their heart.

Continuing with the activity, the kids were divided into two groups. The first group of children explained to their parents the process of planting plants, such as carrots, celery and lemongrass. The objective of this activity was to demonstrate the importance of temporal notions, where, through the sequence of 3 actions, the children explained this process. The other group explained what each of these plants are good for. The children were able to discover the characteristics of the natural world by exploring through their senses. The kids then played farmer’s market in which the parents took a shopping list of what they needed, and the children were able to demonstrate the number-quantity relationship, which is basic to the mathematical logical process.

To conclude our family open house, they planted grass seeds in some pots to take home with the purpose of practicing habits of taking care and the conservation of the environment.

The parents were very happy, grateful and enjoyed a lot in this family time.


ESPAÑOL:

Para nuestra casa abierta, los peques de Kínder prepararon un Farmer’s Market.

El día comenzó con una pequeña sesión de Happy (programa socio-emocional), en la cual las familias también pudieron participar y aprender sobre mindfulness, estar presentes, respirar y sentir su corazón.

Continuando con las actividades, el grupo se dividió en dos: el primero explicó el proceso de siembra de zanahorias, apio y hierbaluisa, demostrando la importancia de las nociones temporales a través de la secuencia de tres acciones. El segundo grupo explicó los beneficios de estos productos, permitiendo a los niños descubrir las características del mundo natural explorando a través de los sentidos.

Luego, los peques jugaron al mercado junto con sus padres. Los papis llevaban una lista de productos que iban a adquirir y los niños lograron demostrar la relación de número-cantidad, fundamental para el proceso lógico-matemático.

Para finalizar nuestra casa abierta, hicieron una maceta familiar para llevarse a casa y plantaron semillas de césped, lo que les permite practicar hábitos de cuidado y conservación del medio ambiente.

Nuestras familias disfrutaron muchísimo.
