Spring & Living Things: our theme this month is about Spring and living things. It coincides nicely with the theme of Easter and new life. We will be learning about characteristics of living things and planting Hairy Harrys to help us learn about the life cycle of plants! We did some Science experiments to learn about how plants grow!
Cherry Blossom: We walked around our school and looked for signs of Spring. God’s creations are amazing and so beautiful!
Literacy: We are continuing to work on our printing books on the lower case letters. We also have been recognizing the middle sound of a word. Sight words for this month: with, play, are, be like
ICC: RCS pairs up with International China Concern (ICC) each year to learn about how this organization helps orphans in China. On Friday, we watched the following Youtube video about the organization and discussed ways we can support the children.
Throughout next week, classroom and whole school activities are centred around learning about issues such as sacrifice, love and care for abandoned children, how we can come alongside and help ICC, etc. Students have received an information package, and they can also ask for donations for ICC and record it on their donation form. Our class will be praying for a child named Yang Jiang Dong. I will post an information sheet in our room.
Collecting ICC donations is voluntary. If you wish to collect, please read and discuss with your child appropriate ways to ask for donations. A Donation Envelope (containing a pledge form and online fundraising instructions) went home with your child today, as well as a letter to parents. Online donations are also appreciated, please read the instructions to see how that can be completed. I encourage you to register and create a personal fundraising webpage for your child. It is an effective tool that makes raising awareness of ICC and fundraising easier. You can find our K1 team page here: https://chinaconcern.rallybound.org/icarefortheworld2019/Team/View/104008/K1
All donation forms must be returned to school on Monday, April 15th. Thank you.
