Dear parents,

We had great couple of weeks. Children have been receiving lessons about Coming of Human Beings. This story allowed us to back in time roughly about five hundred thousand years Children were trying to imagine what might have happened to our ancestors during these periods. By observing a linear timeline chart, the children were able to come to conclusions such as how people used to wander alone and then they discovered that by working in groups they can be efficient, using rocks to make other tools to protect them selves, discovering and controlling of fire,  the ice ages and warming up the earth.

Then we introduced the Story of the Alphabet, which we tell the children in a story form. This is about how the alphabet we use today came about. Again, we start with the early human beings who might have struggled to communicate what they saw. Then how the Egyptians came up with the hieroglyphics to communicate which end up being complicated. Then we introduce the Phoenician sailors who adapted the Egyptian letter system and broke it down to something far more easy to decipher. This became the pivotal moment in history for written language as we know. Then we introduce the Greeks and the Romans who contributed their share to this 26 letter alphabet we use in our classroom today.

We also talked about the types of Migrations that took place throughout history this week. Children especially enjoyed the billiard ball migration system because they could act this out among each other!
