Duck Love

Today the science teacher showed us little duck chicks. There were three different kinds of ducks. They are a grade eight student's duck pets. Mrs. Kitson talked to us about the artist, Eric Carle. We watched him make his art. She read us the book, I see a Song. We also watched the video, The Tiny Seed. We made our own beautiful paintings. We used textured plates and made designs. In the afternoon we made our own Eric Carle paintings with the junior high art teacher. We had lots of fun in Kindergarten.


Fairy Tale Day

Today it was Fairy Tale Day in Kindergarten. It was so much fun to dress up. We did Fairy Tale Crafts. We made fancy name cards, a dragon puppet and a crown. We painted a water colour castle and decorated our own fancy goblet. We also made delicious dragon eggs. We danced a special medieval dance. The Gingerbread Man sent us a cool present. It was a crazy cake! We learned how it was kind of like the pie in Sing a Song of Sixpence. Ask me about the song. We had a fairytale fun day in Kindergarten


Construction Time

Today Mrs. Kitson read the Paper bag Princess. We talked about all the different princess stories and how this one is different. Mrs. kitson read the story, Cinderelephant. We compared the two stories. We practiced printing lower case letters. We are taking our time and always starting from the top. We are working hard to finish our weaving. We are getting really good at reading our popcorn words in the message from The Gingerbread man. We love listening to Owls in the Family. We practiced subitizing. We played different games. We should continue working on seeing objects to 5 without counting We played inside in the afternoon. It was a wet and wonderful day in Kindergarten


Wearing Orange

Today we wore orange and talked about the meaning of wearing orange. We remembered the orange shirt story. We talked about respect and love and that we should treat each other nicely. We are all different but the same too. We planted beans and squash in our Three Sister's Garden. We worked on our weaving outside. We watched a video about the indigenous story. Mrs. Kitson read us the book, The Great Ball Game of the Birds and the Animals. Ask me what the two little animals turned in to. We learned indigenous games. We played the games: Run and scream, Make the Stick Jump and Kick Ball Racing. We had a fun day in Kindergarten


The Three Little Pigs and the Butterfly

Today Mrs. Kitson read us different versions of The Three Little Pigs story. Some of the stories are very funny! We re-told the story of The Three Little Pigs. We cut out pictures of the story and put them in the correct sequence. Asking me to re-tell a story at bedtime is a good idea. We are practicing printing our lower case letters. We learned about Magic C today. Many letters start with magic C. We are working hard to finish our weaving. We are bringing home a little book with two new popcorn words. We should be keeping our little books together so we can read the books over and over again. We only have one more week of library book time. All our books are to be returned by June 11th. In the afternoon we let two butterflies fly away.

Special Day Alert: On Wednesday June 9th we will have a fairy Tale Day. Your child can come dressed as a ....(princess, prince, king, queen, dragon etc.) Don't worry if you do not have a costume we have costumes the children can borrow for the day.


Jack and the Beanstock

Today Mrs. Kitson read the fairytale, Jack and the Beanstalk. We practiced re-telling the story. It is a good idea to practice re-telling stories at home. After you read a book to me, ask me to re-tell the story. We practiced our cutting skills and our number skills. We cut out numbers and put them in the correct order. We planted our own bean seeds with Mrs. D and we are working hard on finishing our weaving. In the afternoon Mrs. Kitson read a chapter from, Owls in the Family. We were excited to catch up with our owl friends. We played inside for Wondertime.
