Laurel Mountain is a school where everyone is a teacher and learner. We love having students and parents share parts of their culture and heritage. This is what was happening in kindergarten last Friday.
In Mrs. Annette Lee's class, John K's parents came to share a Korean game with the Lizard class. The family is new to the United States and the student is learning English for the first time this year. It was a lot like our game called "Sorry". This game was really fun with lots of laughing and cheering. Games and puzzles are one of the favorite enrichment activities for the Lizard class this year, so this was a perfect fit.
In Mrs. Miranda's class, Westwood Dance teacher, Ms. Karen Searles, brought her students to present a dance and movement session with the class. The Westwood Dance students developed and led a lesson for the students centered around the theme of Mexico, which was also the kindergarten social studies unit last week. Also, this past Friday, Mrs. Loraine Gatson, a LME mom, taught the class about the Irish holiday custom of popping open Christmas Crackers and led the children in a craft activity.
