The K/1 Class
Although we are technically still
in winter, it is hard not to feel that spring is around the corner. Buds are
starting to open and flowers are shooting up all over the place!
On Monday we started learning about the “Uu”
team of letters (U, V, X, Y and Z). It was surprising to learn how difficult
the children found it to remember these letters when starting at this unusual
spot. You could try making a game of it at home, or in the car, by giving them
a random letter to start reciting the alphabet from and see how they do. We
also worked on a spring art project and had free choice in the gym.
Tuesday was the first day the Math Playground
was set up in the gym. The kids had fun exploring some of the different math
games. Later we worked in our journals (they are really getting good at this)
and learned about how a group of words make up a sentence in our Oral Language
On Wednesday we
continued with the Math Playground, worked on ‘making ten’ and practiced our
reading. Later we worked on the school mural. This project is really starting
to come to life and the kids are taking pride in their work.
Thursday we had our
last day with the Math Playground, we made Valentines Day cards, went to the
Whole School Meeting and Music class. Later we practiced our reading and enjoyed
the sunny day outside.
Next Wednesday is
Valentines Day. If your child chooses to bring cards or anything to school, we
ask that they bring one for everyone. We have made little bags to collect the
cards in. A class list was sent out last week but if you need the names again
please let us know. We will be having a shared snack on Valentines Day. If you
would like to send something to share, the kids would be sure to enjoy it.
Important dates to remember:
February 12 Family Day
