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.
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!
