Today was the first day with all of our kindergarten friends. We played games to learn our names. We learned the Nursery Rhyme, Jack Be Nimble. We practiced saying the nursery rhyme with all of our names. We even jumped over a pretend candle stick. We will be learning many Nursery rhymes in the next two months. We had our pictures taken today. We played at different centers. We played with the math tubs, and with lots of finger fun toys. We played in the house center, the water table and the sand table. Mrs. Kitson read us the book, Pout, Pout Fish Goes to School. We went to the gym and practiced many ways to move our bodies. We had a fun day in Kindergarten.
A Note from Mrs. Kitson
Rhyming is an important Early Literacy skill. We will be reading many different Nursery rhymes, and rhyming books. You can play rhyming games at home with your child to reinforce this important skill.
It was a great to see our new Kindergarten friends. We started the day with a sharing circle. We played games to learn our names. We read the book, Tom Goes to Kindergarten. Ask your child about what Tom's parents did? The children played at centers. They painted, built structures, drew pictures, and played with different sensory materials in The Makerspace. The children had fun with Mrs. Grau during music class. In the gym. the children moved around like different animals. We also played the game duck, duck goose. We learned the Cree words for duck and goose. (Sisip, niskak ᓂ)
Our first day for all KM students is Wednesday, September 8th. It is an early dismissal day. Dismissal time is 1:35.
Mrs. DeHaan and I are very excited to meet our new kindergarten friends. We will be outside to meet the buses and take the children over to the small playground near the Olympiette Center. If you are driving we will meet you at the park.
We look forward to having a great day filled with fun and friends!
