JK - January 25 / 2019


This week we have played, investigated and explored shapes. In language, we continue to work on activities that promote sound symbol recognition, building and reading three-letter words, encouraging children to add their own text wherever possible, and reading early readers. In our JK language programme, we work with each child at their level and encouraged them to reach their fullest potential.


In French, the students have continued to speak about the weather, counting up to thirty and practising to say the date.


In Music, the JKs listened to the story Bear Snores On and shared what they knew about hibernation. The JKs used their imagination adding percussion instruments and their own sounds to represent the different animal characters and activities from the story.

Looking Ahead

Next week, we will start the unit, How We Express Ourselves. The central idea for this unit is, “Through literature, imagination is used for extending thinking and creativity.” We will explore the concepts of imagination, communication, and creativity.

Parent-teacher interviews are just around the corner -  January 31st and February 5th. Please note that you need to select 3 blocks, 15 minutes, with homeroom teachers and 5 minutes, one block, with the specialist. On both Thursday, January 31st and Tuesday, February 5th there will be an early dismissal. JK/SK students will be dismissed at 1:45 PM.

Valentine's Day is also quickly approaching! If your child shows an interest in making Valentine’s Day cards, we ask that you make cards for the entire class. We will be handing out our Valentine’s on the morning of February 14th. We also want to ensure that all the children feel included and cared for. In addition, if your child is not up for writing out all of their classmate's names, they can just sign their own name. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask Ms. Yochabel or Ms. Maria.
