Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. The word ‘ori’ means to fold and ‘kami’ means paper. Together, they form the word “origami”. It is an art form that has been handed down for generations from parents to children. We introduced origami to our Prep-ONE (SK) class as part of our celebration of Asian and South Asian Heritage month. The students were fascinated with the experience of origami. What made it even more fun for them was the challenge of having to transform a plain sheet of paper into a three-dimensional model!
Folding the paper was great for their co-ordination and thinking skills. Transforming a square sheet of construction paper into something unique was an experience our Prep-ONE students truly enjoyed and gladly participated in! With some paper, patience and teamwork, our students were successful at learning a new form of art and cultural awareness.
We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the private school community of which we are so proud!
