Today we had a fun Valentine's Day Celebration day. The Gingerbread Man sent us two Valentine books. We really liked the book about Chomp, the lemon shark. Ask me about the book. We made a valentine book about colours. We had to look at the first letter of the word to find out what colour word it was. We made a number book too. We made a candy heart graph and compared numbers. We even ate the candy. We decorated a cookie and made a special card for our parents. We tried to make the highest candy tower. It was hard! We had fun playing a four corners Valentine game in the gym. We had a little popcorn and a little movie at the end of the day. It was a sweet kind of Kindergarten day!
Today we talked about RESPECT. Respect for ourselves, respect for our friends and respect for our classroom and community. We talked about what respect looks like. Ask me about respect. We made our own valentine robots. We used our creativity to come up with our own unique robots. The Gingerbread Man sent us one of his favourite books. Breathe by Scott Magoon. We practiced different types of breathing. We played a math game. Our friend had to guess how many objects we were hiding. We talked about Love and described what love is. It was so cold outside! We stayed inside for recess. We had a cozy day in school. We were wrapped in the love of our community.
We will have a valentine day celebration on Thursday. Just a reminder that we can not accept any outside cards or treats. I do have special treats and activities for the children. Stay Warm! Friday will also be pyjama day!
