Yesterday was Pink Shirt Day. We learned why it is called Pink Shirt Day. We talked about how we can help our friends if someone is not being nice. We talked about how we should try to help our friend if they are making bad decisions. We watched a video called Boundaries. We practiced making patterns. We made patterns with colour, size and shape. We painted our castles with water colour paint. They are so beautiful. We are proud artists. It was a cold day, but it was a warm and kind day in kindergarten.
Our friend, Leaha came to talk to us about Turtle Island. She brought in a real turtle shell and told us how the Cree people used the shell like we use a calendar. It has 13 parts on the shell that represent the 13 moons. She showed us sweet grass also. We smelled it. We liked the smell. We practiced subitizing and played a dice game called Ready to Roll. Mrs.Kitson read us the story, Harry the Dirty Dog. Ask me what Harry was running away from. We made predictions about what we thought was going to happen. I can make predictions when you read me a book too. We drew a pricture and talked about our favourite part of the story. It was a cold, cold day so we played inside. It was a cold but happy day in kindergarten.
Today was Random Acts of Kindness Day. We talked about what that means and watched a video about how Kindness can be catchy. We sat in our rainbow and gave compliments to each other. It feels good when someone gives you a compliment. It feels even better when you give someone a compliment and it makes them feel happy. It was Candy Gram day. We all had a special treat and note. We learned about castles and watched a video of castles around the world. We drew our own castle and made crowns for our portraits. We talked about what we would do if we wer a king or a queen. In the afternoon we watched a video and had a surprise popcorn party. It was a pop pop pop kind of day in kindergarten.
Today during Wondertime, The Superintendent, Mark Liguori and the upcoming Superintendent, Sandra Stoddard came and played with us. In the morning we practiced reading our snap words. We circled the snap words in Gingy's email and we circled the words, the, is and that in our Castle books. We will take them home tomorrow. It helps me learn how to read if I re-read these little books everyday. You can help me. Gingy sent us the book , The Paper Bag Princess and a dragon costume. Ask me about the book. We played clockominos and practiced our subitizing skills. It was a dragon of a time in kindergarten.
Today we had lots of fun doing Valentine's Day activities. We decorated a cookie, made a card, played a dice game, and made a colourful heart book. We danced and had a lovely cookie snack. We played cupid tag in gym. It was an even more special day as we celebrated one of our friend's birthdays with a gigantic cupcake. It was a sweet, sweet day in Kindergarten.
Today Mrs. Kitson read us the story of The Three little Pigs. She also read, Jams Marshall's version of The Three Little Pigs. It was very funny. We are practicing reading our books. We read by ourselves and with partners. We take our time and look at the pictures to give us information. We can use the first letter of the words sometimes to help us read the written word. We practiced our numbers. We had to colour in one more than the number on the dice. We are bringing home a new fairy tale book. We circled the snap words, I , am and like. We can read this book to you. It was a nice day to play outside. It was a piggy kind of day in kindergarten.
