Kindergarten & Grade 1 News

We are heading into a busy month in the K/1 room as we begin to prepare for the holiday season and the Christmas concert! Please remember to send the items for our basket raffle. The students had an opportunity to spend time with Mr. Kirk, our Senior History teacher, and learn about Remembrance Day. They also took part in the annual Royal Canadian Legion poster contest. We are very focused on writing stories in ELA. The Kindergartens will begin to label the pictures they draw to better tell their stories. The Grade 1s have been using speech balloons with pictures and have been exploring the different parts of stories. The Grade 1s continue to work on their family projects with the Grade 7s. These will be wrapping up soon. I am so impressed with the family shields made by the Kindergartens! It is evident that a lot of work went into them. In Math the Kindergartens continue to explore patterns and the Grade 1s are working with numbers to 20. We are exploring how to divide a number into different groupings. This can be difficult, so a lot of time will be spent on this to really build a foundation for number operations. Thanks to all the families for coming in early for interviews! If you didn’t have the chance to come in that week, feel free to contact me at the school to set up a time.
