We hope that everyone had a fun long weekend- it sure sounded like it from all the children’s great journal writing and pictures Tuesday morning!
We are continuing with How the World Works, and are learning about taste and smell next. The children are very enthusiastic about this unit, asking lots of questions and requesting that fact books be read to them.
In both SK classrooms, we have changed our dramatic play centres to doctor’s offices. If you have anything you feel might be useful for us, please send it in. Stay tuned for pictures on Seesaw of the office in action!
We are looking at patterning in math- identifying, creating and extending patterns.
In language, we are adding words to our sight word bank, practising our reading strategies and looking at blends.
In French, the students have been exploring the five senses. Please follow the link below to see the song, Les cinq sens, that we have been singing for the past few weeks.
The SKs reviewed rhythmic patterns with popsicle sticks and also online as we identified rhythms as a class in a game. The students continue to practice their senses and boomwhacker songs.
This week in Art, the SKs learned about graffiti artist, Invader, who creates mosaic pieces which are often symmetrical. Students learned about symmetry and used construction paper squares to create a symmetrical creature inspired by Invader.
