Our kids earned another party for ESLR tickets. They chose to have waffle party to celebrate and again it was a great way to recognize their achievement.
We read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and sequenced the events in the story. Children glued on the caterpillar the food he ate each day and they retold the story all by themselves. We also made little caterpillars out of pipe cleaners and pon poms. This book seems to be a class favorite!
During Math we talked how important measuring is. Especially in everyday life. To prove it we baked cakes and measured the ingredients all by ourselves! Great job!
We learnt diagraph sound "qu". Children pretended to be ducks and did some quacking :) Also we made crowns and we acted as QUeens and kings all day long!
The weather is getting nicer and nicer. We finally could enjoy some play time in the sun!
We have been learning about different shapes. How many sides and angles do they have? We also tried to form different shapes with our bodies.
Day Of Love :) We spent the Valentine's Day on making Valentine cards, heart glasses and we made our own heart shaped crayons.
We learned the letter X and made “x-rays” of our hands using black paper and cotton buds (for the bones). Students got even more creative and traced their feet too.
China Day celebrations! We had an amazing day during this special day at our school! Children showed lots of Courage and Vitality during their performance on the stage! Well done little Chickens!
We need trees! They are so important to us. We can use them in many different ways. One of them is rubber sap that is used later for producing rubber. We tried to make our own"rubber" and feel the mixture of it by mixing corn starch with glue and water!
Letter sound "W" helped us review what we already know about water and how it can be used to meet our needs as well as where we can find it. We also read about wonderful worms, who help enrich the soil so the plants can grow in it. We found we need worms! We worked hard to make our wiggly worms out of pompons.
Look at this beautiful flower! But do you know the main parts of the plant? No? Let's find out what are they! Root-yes, stem-yes, leaf-yes and flower-yes!
Back to school and straight into learning new letter sound "Z". We read a story about "Zack the Lazy Zebra" and made our own zebras!
Collecting natural samples outside in order to look at them closely using our microscopes. They have different shapes and all look pretty amazing.
We learnt about symmetry. We also looked around for things that are symmetrical- man made as well as natural. Painting magic symmetrical pictures was lots of fun too!
Does it sink or float? Some of the results were quite surprising to us :)
Ready for some experiments? Welcome to our brand new, shining Science Lab.
Getting into the spirit of upcoming holiday :)
We talked about natural resources that our Planet shares with us and how we can use them to make different types of things.
Food is a very important part of our lives. But do we eat healthy things? Let's see...
What colour do we get if we mix yellow and green? Green! And it starts with "G".
Here comes the Gorillas! ....and the letter sound "G"
How do you like your doughnut? With icing? With sprinkles? Or maybe with icing sugar? All of it please :)
Counting with elephants and writing numbers!
For letter sound "H" we made a long chain of friendship. We traced our hands, cut them out and joined them with a string.
Practising Sight Words! It is believed that being able to recognize a large number of sight words gives students a better start to learning to read.
Reading Buddies! It is always great fun to have visitors. This time Grade 2 :) They came with books they wrote all by themselves and they read them to us.
Printing with vegetables :) Pumpkins and potatoes. What sound letter do they start with?
How many cups of water are in this container? Guess!
We made yummy Moon Cakes!
Popcorn party was p-p-p-p-perfect!
What letter is it?
We used our bodies to form the letters we have learnt :) T A I S
Our job for today? Designing fairy lands out of empty carton boxes, bottles and stick them together with sellotape. Pre-K/K presented lots of compassion working in groups and respecting each other ideas.
Trip to the Polar Ocean
We had lots of fun during our trip to the Polar Ocean World and we also learnt a lot about different sea creatures. The trip was a great success! We wanted to thank our fabulous moms for their help! Thank you Chloe's mom-Kathy, Branko's mom- Monika, Angie's mom-Lizzy and Messi's mom-Megan!
Are there any "A" or "S" in your name?
All children took part in a survey asking friends if their name has any "S" or "A" letters. Later everybody shared the results. The winner was letter "A"!!!
I am unique and amazing!
Puzzle fun:) Children were looking for their noses, eyes, mouth and glued them on the blank face. Is this nose mine, Ms Jola?
What starts with "S"? Yes, we know it all!
Students did a fantastic job at finding words that start with "S". These are the results!
Welcome to Fairy Land!
Letter "A" Brainstorming. Good job Pre-K/K
This week we have been learning letter sound "A a" and we made lots of different activities to make the learning process fun and easy.
"The ants have found the picnic. Some of the ants crawl up the arm of a girl. She looks down and says a, a, a, ants!"
