5C Experiencing K1
On May 8th, 5C went to K1 to experience the difference between a Kindergarten and 5th grade. While we were going there, it was very bright and hot that you could barely open your eyes. While I was walking, I was curious why we were going to K1 not knowing the reason why.
First, when we arrived we sang this song called, “ Open Shut Them”. It was very fun singing that song. And after that, we read a book called “Who Sank the Boat?” and some of our classmates were the characters for the book. And others were the boat for the story. We acted out what was happening in the story and we finished our story thinking who sank the boat.
After that, we sang another song called “Speckled Frogs”. We had some of our classmates to be five frogs for our song, and the others made a pond. We sat like a circle and made some spaces for the frogs to jump in our pond. We sang the song and every time, a frog jumped in to our pond. And when there were no more frogs, we ended the song.
Next, Ms. Angela said a number and we had to show the number as many ways we can show. Some people showed ways that were very unique and I never even thought about. But things mostly we showed were all the same. Because they were mostly what we would show if we had to show it numbers.
Lastly, we took photos of objects from 1 to 10. But every object had to be different. So example, if i took a picture of a pencil for 1, than I had to do something different for 2 something like 2 erasers or things like them and just keep on going until to 10. This was very fun then what I thought it would be.
Going back to K1 felt very weird even though we were K1 like 6 years ago. When we went there, I was like thinking, ‘ Why are we hear?’. And then Ms. Angela’s voice turned to a kindergarten teacher. It was a bit weird because we were like learning something easier than Grade 5 and I couldn’t believe that now I have learned more and could feel the difference between K1 and Grade 5. It’s was actually fun going back to K1 and experiencing what we learned in K1. Through this, I could feel that I improved and learned a lot!
