Newsletter #31

May 3rdEdition of
The K/1 Class News

Hello all,
This week seemed to fly by! It’s a busy time now and many things are being fit in to our usual days. 

OnMondaywe practiced printing and had library as usual. We also made mixed beasts in art (up on the wall). Then we painted with dandelion flowers outside and played circle games after forest time. Jasmjin and Jan are back and everyone is very happy about their return. Welcome back! 

Tuesdaywas the Spring Showcase! Everyone enjoyed watching their peers up on stage and admiring the displays of crafts, cakes and more. It was a great event. We also had our Root of Empathy class and Oral Language groups and enjoyed PE outside.

On Wednesday we worked on doubles in math and played number Bingo. Later we found special spots in the forest to place our birds nests and we heard a story about birds. 

Thursday we had our Whole School Meeting, Music and Nature art. We also talked about how special items, or smells, can trigger memories. We talked about how special memories make us feel and how we can write/draw about these experiences. Next Wednesday the children are invited to bring in a item from home that brings back a special memory for them. We will use this for a writing project.  

A note was sent home in the planner about this already (thanks to those who have sent the jars in) but here it is again if you missed it:

Dear Parents, 
Please send a small bottle or jar with lid to school with your child. Old tincture bottles are good. Make sure lid can seal! We need them for our Mother's Day project. Thank you, Ms. Klare
