It is hard to believe that it is the middle of May already. We definitely had another busy week in our classroom. The students continue to work in their new groups on the latest round of literacy and math centres. Ask your children about these exciting centres. Next weekend, we will post guiding questions and photographs of these centres on the Kindergarten Website.
On Thursday, May 14th, we also had four teachers visit our room in the afternoon. These teachers came to observe our literacy block, and they were all amazed at how hard the children worked independently, in small groups, and as a large class. These teachers are excited to try some of our activities out in their rooms. We were so proud of how well our students worked on this difficult day: not only having people in observing them, but also having the power out for part of the day too.
Thursday, May 14th was also the date of the Teacher Appreciation Lunch. Thank you to all of the wonderful parents that sent in special treats for this amazing lunch. All of the food was definitely overwhelming and certainly appreciated. Many, many thanks again!
Thanks to all of the parents that also sent in recyclable materials for our Humpty Dumpty Experiment. We are excited to complete this experiment on Tuesday, May 19th (A Day) and Wednesday, May 20th (B Day). Our next Blog entry will update you on this exciting experiment.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
