During this week, children will learn about themselves, their names, birth dates, external physical features, and inner personalities, their likes and dislikes, that make them special. This helps children discover their own self, build confidence and self esteem.
Children will also learn about the parts of the body, the senses, how the parts of the body and senses work, and learn how to protect the body and maintain physical hygiene.
Children will develop an awareness of their own emotions to create healthy and personalised social connections with those around them.
Listen to the reading book “I Love Myself” by Karen Beaumont, watch the cartoon “Look in the mirror”, and talk together, to form self awareness;
Create the book “Everything About Me” and record your presentation;
Explore the internal and external parts of the body, and the parts that aren't exactly “parts” with the reading book “Parts” by Tedd Arnold;
