Today we met Bug

Today Jasmyn came into our class and introduced us to Bug. Ask me what Bug taught us. We like talking about our feelings. We finished our space houses. We put them in the Gathering Space so we could have our own Art Gallery. They are pretty cool. We worked on our weaving. We can hardly wait to finish our blankets. We are bringing home a special present for a special someone. At the end of the day Mrs. Kitson gave us a special icecream treat. It was a yummy day in Kindergarten.

I will truly miss seeing the children everyday in class. I have sent home information regarding at home learning. You will receive an email with the google meet times on Friday. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
