Rainbow Crow

Today Mrs Kitson read us the story, Rainbow Crow. It was an indigenous story that explained why the crow is black and makes the caw sound. Ask me about the story. We talked about the sacrifice that the crow made. We talked about the things we do for people, just like the crow. We played a dice game where we had to find the number that was just one more. We made our own crow puppets. You can sing the 5 Little Crows song with me. We played with our treasure boxes. We watched a video about the differences between crows and ravens. We drew a raven in our nature book, and talked about what we learned from the video. We made our own rainbow crows. We had a fun day in Kindergarten.

Messy Painting

Today we had lots of fun playing around with paints. It was very messy!!! We made patterns in our lifebook. We are getting very good at making different patterns. We talked about the Letter Y. We played a fun playdough game. We practiced counting and comparing numbers with the playdough balls we made. We practiced making patterns with our numeracy tubs. In gym we played a fun four corners exercise game. We watched an animated storybook, called, The Stick. Ask me about the story. We imagined what we would make our stick turn in to. It was so windy so we stayed inside and played with our treasure boxes. It was a fun day in kindergarten.

Welcome Back

We were all excited to see each other after the holidays! We had a sharing circle and talked about our holidays. Some of the children shared their Home for the Holidays books. The Gingerbread Man sent us an email and a package with books to read. Mrs. Kitson read the book The Koala that Could. Ask me about the book. We have new life books. We are starting to write more words. We are copying print and sounding out words with Mrs. Kitson. We are learning different secrets about letters. We talked about the letter X. We practiced our letter sounds on the Ipads, using Pocket Phonics. We translated different patterns with the items in our numeracy tubs. We spent the afternoon in the forest. It was a beautiful day!

The Polar Express

Today we took a ride on The Polar Express. We had hot chocolate and nougat. We even received tickets to go on the train. We made sure our ticket was punched so we could stay on the train. We practiced our colouring and cutting skills when we made our own cut out train. We played a dice game. We had fun putting pictures into hot chocolate cups around the room. We had to match pictures with the first letter in the word. In the afternoon we had a popcorn party. It was a choo choo kind of day in Kindergarten.
