Summary – テーマ概要
In this unit we will be looking at verbal and non-verbal communication (Form 特性・構造), signs or indicators that describe feelings (Function 機能・役割), and stories that evoke different feelings (Perspective 視点・観点).
It will be an inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic. Resulting in the learners feeling empowered and confident enough to create their own narratives and perform them for others.
By gaining the vocabulary to express their feelings, especially feelings that are relevant to their daily lives both in and out of
preschool, we hope that the learners feel more confident in using their words to express themselves and what they’re feeling, and by understanding their own feelings they’ll gain a greater empathy for others in the process.
