Today we talked more about owls. We painted an owl and we made an owl puppet. We started to colour our own bird book. We can keep all of our little books in a shoe box. We can use these books to practice pointing to the words with our parents. We drew owls in our nature notebook and playing a game where we had to be fast and find funny monkey pictures. In the afternoon we went outside and painted pictures in the snow. It was a owly day in Kindergarten.
Today it was Hawaii Day in kindergarten. We learned about Hawaii. Mrs. Kitson read us a funny book. It was called Pig Kahuna. We made our own patterned surfboards. We listened to the book. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. We made Chicka Chicka Boom Boom pictures. We listened to special Hawaiin music and did a special Hawaiin dance. Mrs. Kitson made us Hawaiin Ice and we also had special beach cupcakes. It was a sunny day in Kindergarten.
Today we learned more facts about owls. Ask me to tell you a fact about an owl. We made our own owls out of clay. We took our time and added alot of detail with special tools. We played a math bingo game and we made special cards. Mrs. Kitson read us a funny rhyming book. It was called, Five Little Penguins. Mrs. Kitson said one of our friends had a better ending to the story. Her ending rhymed but the ending in the book didn't. We had lots of fun playing outside. It was an owly day in kindergarten.
Teacher Note: We will be having Hawaii Day on Monday. Your child can come with summer clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen beach towels. etc.
Today Mrs. Kitson read the story, The Mitten by Jan Brett. We acted out the story. Ask me what the story was about. We made our own Mitten book. We talked about the letter X and we copied patterns with pattern blocks. We are working very hard listening for sounds and writing words in our lifebooks. It is so cold outside that we stayed inside for recess. We had lots of fun playing in the restaurant and the animal hospital. It was a great day in kindergarten.
Today we started learning about owls. Ask me what an owl pellet is. We took apart an owl pellet. We discovered lots of different bones in the pellet. We drew pictures of the bones in our nature journal. We learned a new math game. We are practicing seeing numbers without counting (subitizing). We made beautiful art pieces at the beautiful stuff station. We practiced our rhyming and listening for beginning sounds, We went for a beautiful walk in the woods and watched the sun come up. Ask me about the colours we saw. We danced in the forest. It was a great day in Kindergarten.
It was so fun to be back at school and to see our friends. Finally we could play outside!! We had so much fun playing in the snow and playing on the snow mountain. The Gingerbread Man surprised us. He sent us two books about pancakes. Guess what? We even had hot pancakes and syrup. We learned a new math game. We made our own If you Give a Pig a Pancake book. It was a funny story. We talked about the letter J. We have a friend in our class that begins with the letter J. We are practicing rhyming and learning our letter sounds. I can practice these skills at home. There are ideas on Mrs. Kitson's website. It was a warm winter day in Kindergarten.
