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.

Our unit for Term 2 is “The World Around Me.”

Our unit for Term 2 is “The World Around Me”. Students will take a journey through their community and discover the people and places that are present in their everyday lives. Children will visit different habitats and discover plants and animals that share our community and how they can care for their environment. Within this unit children will explore the people who help them in their everyday lives this will include doctors, dentists, teachers, vets, shop assistants and so on. We plan to transform our classrooms into different dramatic role-play areas so children are exposed to a variety of environments. The role-play areas will also facilitate imaginative play as well as extending children’s vocabulary.
