PK1: how do we expand our learning around a theme (the body)

By Isabelle Gilet

Our Pk1 students focused on the body. They started by reading “la promenade de Flaubert”: During a stroll, the wind blows so hard that Flaubert accessories and body parts fly away! He is able to find everything back, though he might just look a bit different. The children love the story

Our 3 classes built Flaubert out of paper, blew on him, put him back together, developing body parts language and space awareness.

You probably saw some of the work derived from the theme in the classrooms. Check the video made by Alexandra in PK1: the students built a ‘child life size” patient. They then transformed in surgeon and operated on different body parts.
