Every March, all the preschools on Ambergris Caye organize a month of stimulating experiences for their students. This is a chance to be creative, explore the community and discover their unique talents.
Here are the highlights of the 2019 preschool month
Students marched through the streets of San Pedro, highlighting each of the learning themes for the year. We were National Symbols – the toucan, the black orchid, the mahogany tree, the tapir and the national flag. Other schools were shapes, numbers, animals, weather… it was a wonderful parade to see.
Sports Day and Expo
The highlight of the second week was sports day. Students split into groups and had fun playing games alongside students from other preschools. With popular preschool games like sack races, balloon races and kicking balls, there was fun for everyone.
In the third week the children attended a fun, interactive expo at Central Park. Displays had hands on ways to interact with reading, phonics, counting, imaginative play, water, sand boxes and more. Young students from the primary schools also attended and enjoyed the hands on fun.
The Preschool Festival of Arts
The Festival of Arts gave all students the opportunity to perform. We performed two pieces – 5 little monkeys dancing on the bed and the poem A Great Somebody. Our students did well and the judges awarded us gold for both items. Other performances included popular themes such as the shape train, trolls, brown bear… what do you see, and even 10 green bottles.
Other fun events included
- Magnetic fishing
- Visiting the police station, the fire station, the dentist and the library
- Making fun art pieces and displaying them at the House of Culture
Thank you everyone who made this fun month possible for the children of San Pedro
