PK2 students in a P.E/Math active learning activity

By Isabelle Gilet

This week our PK2 students discovered a classic game “le beret” or “steal the bacon”. Each player has a number written in his/her hands. The “bacon“ is placed in the center of the playing area. A teacher calls out a number and all students with that number run to pick up the “bacon.”

It is a lot of fun and a great way to demonstrate the advantages of kinesthetic learning. In kinesthetic learning, movements and actions replace more passive forms of learning, such as listening to the teacher explaining a concept. Our young students work on numeration, are active participants in their learning and even more important in PK, they enjoy learning!
