Welcome Parents to KG1 Lobsters class,
My name is Ms. Lorena Socorro and I come from Venezuela. I will be your child's teacher this year! I have been teaching at EMS Doha for 5 years and I also taught in Venezuela for 4 years. Please do not hesitate to speak to me in regard to any issues or concerns or even to send me an email. I am sure this year is going to be a fantastic year for all of us. Please keep checking our KG1 home page and our KG1 Lobsters page very regularly as I post important information and some photos of the children learning during the day.
Our classroom Teaching Assistant is Ms. Janet. She has been working with young children for 11 years and this is her first year in our school. We are both here to support your child and to support you. Ms. Janet and I support the school policy of healthy snacks. So please do not send nutella sandwiches, chips, chocolates or fizzy drinks.
Our unit for Term 1 is “All About Me.”
During this unit, we will discuss how people are similar and different and will learn about our bodies, our thoughts, and our feelings. We will explore the 5 senses and how we use them. Children will discover and learn about how bodies are the same and different and how people use their bodies to show feelings. They will discuss their favorite things and answer questions about their likes and dislikes. We will discuss family and how our families are important to us. Through purposeful play, stories and integrated learning centers children will begin to answer the question “who am I?
