Wrapping Up Session 2 at Beeman!
It is hard to believe that we are wrapping up our second session of ELP this year, where has the time gone?! We have really enjoyed learning new games, songs, and about different cultures for these first two sessions at Beeman Elementary. This week we will be celebrating our time together by bring both Travel to Africa and Card Club together so that we can share our learning with one another.
Card Club is going to be teaching the K-3 group how to play 21! We are really looking forward to playing this game together and hearing from the Card Club all of the cool games they learned and played this session!
Travel to Africa is going to teach the Card Club an African game called “Mbube Mbube”. This is a game where students are in a circle and two volunteers go to the middle. One is blindfolded while the other is not, the circle then quietly chants mbube increasing their volume as the blindfolded person comes closer to the person who is free. Students really enjoyed this game and learned about it’s origins in Africa.
