A Visit To Freya's Kindergarten (part 1)
It's parents-participatory-class day. We left home early so as to reach the school earlier. There was something different we saw on the street as we exited ourselves from the subway. It's a sight of women clad in blue and others in red which seemed to be 'working' for someone's vying for the upcoming regional election in Korea. Ok, anyway...let's resort to the kindergarten...
As soon as she entered the class and put her bag and stuff at her locker, she picked up something..and started making something.
So, today's goal was to invite parents to experience and see what their kids do on a daily basis at school. First, it's a morning greeting session where kids took turn to introduce themselves.
Then..came up the freely-choose-your-own-activity. Kids asked their Moms (or Dad) to see and aid them do what they wished to do.
They all grouped themselves into corners or tables designed up for 5 kids and began their select activities.
As for Freya, she decided to make a book of her own. A dummy one, of course. But, in the eyes of the kids, the books they made out of paper and scraps did manage to get them absorbed into what they'd chosen.
Then...off she went to draw something...
,,playing with bricks with her Mom.
and making 4-D ball made of plastic and paper.
