The slight chill in the air did not stop our students of K1 213 from bundling up and exploring the local neighborhood market.
The students packed their bags with their water bottle and lined up to visit the Linglong Neighborhood center. They followed their teachers down the road, over the bridge and into the vegetable market. Shoppers were excited to see the students learning about produce and the many different fruits and vegetables they can buy to eat.
The teacher showed the children mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and lotus root, to name just a few. After looking around the teacher purchased a few items they could plant back at the kindergarten. She also bought celery and cilantro to use in painting crafts at school.
The children were happy and curious and left with a warm feeling of community. This practice was also important for teaching students how to safely cross the street, how to look both ways for cars, and how to stay together with your group to avoid dangerous situations.
We enjoyed seeing so many friendly faces on our journey and we hope that our smiles helped to brighten the day of our neighbors.
