Project Work - Self-respect - June 9, 2020

Afterschool June 15, 2020

Let's take a look at a CGK Afterschool Project Work lesson.
The day's subject is “Moral Education”.
The theme is “Respect”.

On this day, during Week 2, we learned about “Self-respect”.

After talking and thinking about the things they like, dislike, things they are good at or not good at, etc., the children expressed themselves by painting self-portraits.

They were all able to create the clear image of themselves they had in mind by painting themselves wearing clothes in their favorite color or holding hands with their best friend and so on.


Now it's time to do a review and wrap up the lesson.

On a board, we wrote down each child's strong points and skills.
They were all different in some ways and the same in others, but that's neither good or bad. For example, someone may be good at singing and another at math.

Both are great skills to have and one can't be said to be better than the other.


So, by writing it on the board, we can see that while everyone is different, there is something amazing about all of us.

Their teacher, Emily, then explained that being different from others is not a bad thing and it's ok to be yourself.

Perhaps it was a slightly difficult topic for first graders, but they all listened carefully.

In moral education lessons, the children's imagination and understanding are very important when talking about concepts that can't be seen.

Some of the lessons might be a little difficult for them to understand, but by going one step further and thinking about it a little more deeply, it will help to improve their learning experience in the future. The teachers try to develop the children's interest through videos, books, productions and songs.

By creating an environment where they can challenge themselves, we hope the children can continue to learn more and more new things!
