This week in KG-1
This week we read many versions of the story “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” The children enjoyed comparing the similarities and differences in each story we read and learning new vocabulary. Our activities in centers this week were based on Goldilocks. The children made puppets and the setting; helped made porridge; watched the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears; and practised our inventive spelling by pulling items out of the Mystery Box to write.
Unfortunately we were not able to swim this week due to the chlorine levels not being ready in the small pool, instead we had some water fun outside with water. We hope to be back in the pool next week for our first “Swim”. The children did a fantastic job getting ready for swimming and getting dressed independently.
On Tuesday we celebrated Hag Al Laila! We watched the Grade 3 come past the classroom and we got given candy treats by Rashids Mom (KG-1AM)
Mr Fields came into the classroom and talked to us about Friendships. What strategies we can try if we are feeling frustrated with a friend and also how to work through different scenarios that my arise. Ask your child what they learnt.
Well done to this weeks Rock Star Lyne for being a communicator with her peers and teachers!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE LOVELY SURPRISE TODAY!
Next week in KG-1
We will continue to read stories of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and we will begin retelling the story with props we have made and also in small groups. We will be buddy reading with a High School class
- Sunday – Purple T-Shirt
- Monday – Swimming.
- Tuesday, May 8 will be the last week that we will send home Literature Bags in KG1. During Ramadan, myself and Ms. Kareen will leave shortly after the students and there is no time for us to organize the bags. We hope you and your child have enjoyed these great books and activities to build many skills.
- We want your child to continue using IXL each week throughout the remainder of the school year and even into the summer… They will still have an account! We are sending home one final list for May/June and your child can repeat as many as you think they need to practice.
- It won’t be long before we begin our How We Express Ourselves story retelling to the whole class. Please allow your child to practice retelling and acting out the story with you at home, a couple times each week, so they will be comfortable. Any props, costumes, puppets, etc. should also be made at home soon, so they can practice with them. Let me know if you have any questions
- No School on Sunday 13th May
