Lest we Forget!

Tawa preschoolers discussed the reasons as to why we celebrate Remembrance Day.
Children had watched the televised program and knew about the sacrifice of the soldiers during war times. One of our little friends remarked that “the girlfriends did not die. They were fine”. We responded that everybody missed their loved ones and were sad that the soldiers had to go to war zones.
Children then called out the countries that their families had immigrated from, and we saw these countries on the globe, which was pretty cool for the kids.
To further their learning, we played alphabet bingo with the names of the countries that they had pointed out. Everybody enjoyed sharing stories that their parents or grandparents had told them.
We ended this session by providing water colors for children to enjoy an art activity.
