May 25th Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Hi everyone, we had a fun week!

Monday was a holiday, no school.

On Tuesday everyone was thrilled to arrive to see our new baby caterpillars! We will be raising them in the class and watching as they metamorphosis into Painted Lady butterflies. Later we wrote about the caterpillars in our journals and played musical hoops in gym. Later we worked on reading and spent time outside.

Wednesday was fun day! In the morning we played a “doubles” math game, practiced using the jump ropes and enjoyed a readers theatre presentation of “Good Night Moon” performed by the grade 1’s in our class. We then learned a bit more about butterflies and painted butterfly art. In the afternoon the kids in grades K-3 enjoyed fun day! They rotated through different stations like water relays, potato sack racing and so on. Everyone had a blast.

On Thursday the kids used their knowledge of letter sounds to figure out mystery words! It was a fun activity. After Whole School Meeting, Music and centres the kids had their last Nature Art class with Lisa. This time we worked on drawing shadows. Our time in the forest was magical. The wild roses are in full bloom, filling the air with their sweet aroma. Pink petals decorated the forest floor and the kids enjoyed gathering and tasting the sweet gifts from nature. 

Friday was a school day and also Jump Rope for Heart. Thanks to all of you who sent in donations for this good cause. The kids had another fun afternoon participating in this event. The class also worked on printing practice, went to the library and played in centres.

We will be going on a field trip to Duck Creek on June 6th. Permission slips were sent home today (Friday). The trip is organized by the Salt Spring Conservancy and is always a great day of learning and adventure. Please fill out both forms and return them next week. Also, please be sure to have your child arrive at school on time on this day, as we will be getting organized to leave right away.
