Earth Day activities

We spent a lot of time outside today.....as we think about Earth Day on Sunday!
** We had gym class outside today.
** We had morning story time outside by the Inukshuk.
** We had library class this afternoon, so we arranged with Mrs. Wood to read us a story outside.
  
**We went for a walk to play outside at a nearby park. As we walked, we reviewed how to cross the street quickly and safely at the corner (no dilly-dallying), make sure the vehicles have stopped before walking, and checking back lanes for traffic before walking past. 


                           
**We also picked up 3 bags of litter around the school ground. We were so busy picking up the garbage, that we didn't get any photos!!

We have some exciting changes in our dramatic play centre. Our book centre is now surrounded by a boat...as we "Sail into Fairy Tale Land"....and you can find royalty in fairy tales... so we have a castle, too! Look for pictures next week, as we read and learn about different fairy tales and nursery rhymes, too! 

Today....
Recess time fun on a lovely day...


Sharing time..... "N" is for noodles!

Word detectives and pirates!

One of the themes in our Science Curriculum is "paper". We have also been learning about the 3 R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. After all, it is Earth Day on April 22nd!
Today we did an activity that involved  paper and recycling. We each looked at a page from the newspaper and pretended to be word detectives, as we found and circled words that we knew how to read.  We even found some little words hiding in bigger words! Then we made a pirate hat out of that newspaper!!

TWAS

On Fridays, we do a writing activity called  T.W.A.S.  (or "This Week At School"). The kinders write a note to someone, and tell them about something that he/she did at school this week. Here's what three of the kids had to say....(You can click on the picture to see a larger version)
