achieve. The children start reading, researching, writing, illustrating, performing,
work alone and in groups. We keep the progress of your child
when using certain activities and the children to ask
explain their work and ideas – maybe even yours
We know you are interested in your child’s work. Try
work your child during this theme to discuss and if possible let them
also “teaches you give.”
If your child needs to investigate, you can help him / her, but let the kids do the work.
If you get the chance to express their interest in the ideas that emerge during this theme further to inflame, than to seize the opportunity – but your enthusiasm and interest is important.
We hope your child at the end of this topic has learned a lot.
And we hope you enjoyed your child to have seen work with enthusiasm. If you have comments or questions about the work of your child, please contact us.
