Kindergarten & Grade 1 News

The K/1s are leaving a busy month behind and are heading into another one! Please make sure to check your child’s calendar for upcoming events. In the past month, the Grade 1s have finished a math unit on Measurement and have started one on Numbers to 100. Right now we are working on counting to 50 in groups, instead of just by ones. The Ks have started a unit on Measurement and currently are working on ordering objects by size. The Ks completed a unit on Eric Carle and now we are really focusing in on their animal posters. The students have created their posters and we have organized the information they found in books and online. The 1s are creating some amazing final projects for their “Where in the World?” research. Each student chose how they wanted to present their information and I am impressed with the creativity I’m seeing! This Friday, our friend Trace is moving away. We will be having a class party for him. Mrs. Dietz and I will be providing the lunch. A note went home on Monday about this.

Over the next month, I want to spend as much time as we can outdoors playing and exploring nature and colour. I am hoping that we will also create some nature art. Enjoy the long weekend and the warm weather!
