We had a very successful first week of full day K! Your children enjoyed a full day of learning and playing. They were busy learning routines and following class norms. Ask them what class norm #3 and Talking Banana are!
Last week: We have started our “Seven Days of Creation” booklet. When student booklets are complete, feel free to read your child’s booklet during Noisy Reading time. The booklets will be clipped on the string on the bulletin board in the classroom.
We tried our very first table rotations. Students explored different activities from each table group.
We listened to “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” and made our own Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees with our letters of first name climbing up the tree. These are on display on the bulletin board in the hallway outside our classroom. The class did very well creating their own letters when they could not find the letters they needed. I love their flexibility and creativity!
Last week, we were also learning and exploring colours around us. We went for a Colour Hunt around our school and the students picked up different objects from the nature to their colour boards. We also had our first group project searching and cutting pictures from magazines to create colour posters.
We have been learning these worship songs. I love to see their enthusiasm while singing!
This week: As part of learning about God’s creation we are investigating colours and shapes, and how God used them in His creation. We will start our literacy program called Heggerty in which students will learn different sounds and letters.
Library: Thank you all for bringing in the library bags. Each student is allowed to borrow two books from the library starting Monday. Please teach them how to take care of the books at home.
- Thank you for keeping your children home while they were not feeling well! Your kindness to other students in the class is much appreciated!
- Thank you for bringing in the blankets for rest time! All the blankets are now able to fit in one box! Hooray! You are welcome to take your child’s blanket home to wash whenever you want. I will send them home to wash the last Friday of each month. Please bring them back to school the following Monday.
