Celebrating the World of Plants and Taking Action to Conserve Them
Why plants are important?
“Plants are the backbone of all life on Earth and an essential resource for human well-being. Just think about how your everyday life depends on plants.”
In school, we talked about how important plants are in our existence. We looked into different items we use that come from plants.
We took turns in speaking in front and sharing what we know.
We get FOOD from plants.
“Everything we eat comes directly or indirectly from plants. Throughout human history, approximately 7,000 different plant species have been used as food by people. “
We get OXYGEN from plants.
“Oxygen is brought to you by plants, as a byproduct of photosynthesis.”
We get CLOTHES from plants.
We get MEDICINE from plants.
“One-quarter of all prescription drugs come directly from or are derivatives of plants. Additionally, four out of five people around the world today rely on plants for primary health care.”
Habitat: “Of course, aside from humans’ myriad uses, plants make up the backbone of all habitats. Other species of fish and wildlife also depend on plants for food and shelter.”
Climate: “Plants store carbon, and have helped keep much of the carbon dioxide produced from the burning of fossil fuels out of the atmosphere.”

In school, we talked about our environment and explored the world of plants.
We practiced our observing and recording skills – we went for a nature walk and took a closer look at the plants in our school. We observed the various parts and how each plant is unique, and how they are the same and yet different from one another.
We also planted our very own bean plant and conducted an experiment. We wanted to know which part of the plant grows out of the seed first. Most of us thought it would be the leaves that grow first. We were wrong! The roots came out of the seed first, then the stem stretched out, and finally the leaves sprouted.
We had an art activity as well and made leaf impressions. We made beautiful and colorful leaf patterns!
We are 100 days SMARTER, WISER, and BRIGHTER.
We have reached 100th Day in school! And we are celebrated this day with all the Early Years classes – Nursery and Pre-K.
Days before the day, we worked together to make our 100 Days chain. We designed each piece and put them all together. Then we hung them as our decorations. Each piece is unique and colorful as a symbol of each vibrant day we’ve had in school.
To celebrate the day, we did various fun-filled activities:
We came to school and dressed-up as our 100-old self.
We listened to a story about the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.
We decorated our own 1ooth Day Crown.
We worked on our counting skills and counted 100 Cheerios. Nomnomnom…
And who would ever forget dancing!
It was such great we will forever remember. So much love.
Peace, love, and Harmony! The Kindergarten wishes you a warm and happy Holiday Season.
The Kindergarten’s performance of The Nutcracker during the CISM Christmas Carols 2016 will surely get you into the spirit of the season.

Who doesn’t love parties? We all love parties, young and old. The Kindergarteners enjoyed partying with their friends, sharing a meal together, playing games and dancing. All of this was possible thanks to our supportive Kindergarten parents who prepared everything!
