Today we had lots of fun learning Hip Hop moves from our kindergarten friend. We are learning how we are all unique. We all have different talents. We continue to practice learning our letter sounds. We are learning our sounds by studying our friends' names. We clap our names, listen for beginning sound and look at the shapes of the letters. We like to make up stories with the letter we are learning. Today our letter was J. We listened to the story, Room on the Broom. We put the story in the correct sequence. I can practice retelling the stories you read to me at bedtime. We played a silly spider dice game and made our own Room on the Broom stories. It was a witchy kind of day in Kindergarten.
Today it was so nice outside. We had a picnic. We went to the garden and picked potatoes. We made ketchup. We used our sense of smell to guess what spices we were putting into our ketchup. Some of us liked the scents. Some of us did not like the smell of the spices. We all agreed we did not like the smell of apple cider vinegar. Next week will be cooking something to go with our ketchup. Can you guess what it is?
Today we cleaned up the garden. We picked all the carrots, tomatillos, beans, corn and turnips. We all worked together to get the garden ready for next year. In the morning Mrs. Kitson read us the book, 10 for Dinner. We looked at different ways to make a 10 number story. We made our own number story in our notebooks. We reviewed our letter sounds. We practice making the right movement with our mouths and tongues. Mrs. Kitson told us a funny ghost story. You can make stories up with us at home. Her story had lots of words that started with the letter G. We made our own Halloween books. We copied words and drew pictures. We told our own stories and the story making table. We had lots of fun playing in The Halloween House. It was a fun day in Kindergarten
Today we learned about Bus Safety. We met a special ELK. Ask me what his name was. We practiced going out the back of the bus. Ask me what the safety rules are. The house center is turning in to a Halloween House. We are excited for Halloween. We will be having a small Halloween party on October 31st from 10:00 11:15. Our parents are welcome to come and work at a center if they would like. Mrs. Kitson will be sending out an email about the party. We had a fun day in Kindergarten.
Today we had a very nice substitute teacher in the morning. She told Mrs. Kitson that we were a very nice class. We practiced our sounds and she told a story about the letter E. We went to different letter stations and we played a game practicing taking turns. In gym we played a fun tag game with little rainbow sponges. We practiced using our pincer grip to fling the rainbow sponge at our friends. We even had a fun race. This strengthens our fingers. We had fun in the afternoon in The Maker Space. We painted, played in the water table, coloured, played with the house and used the building materials. It was a fun day in Kindergarten.
Teacher Note: Remember to sign up for interviews. It is a good idea to link the school's google calendar as our kindergarten classes are sometimes altered due to field trips etc. It does not always follow the Elk Island School Board Calendar.
Today Mrs. Kitson dressed up like The Paper Bag Princess. She read the story, The Paper Bag Princess, by Robert Munsch. In the afternoon Mrs. Blatner, our school librarian came in and read a Curious George book to us. We had fun at Wondertime. We like writing letters to our friends and family. It was a fun day in Kindergarten.
