We are celebrating the arrival of Spring and all of the kindergarten classes will be wearing a colour of the rainbow. Our class will be wearing red. Please have your child dress in a red shirt, skirt, dress, or pants. We will be gathering together and taking a roof-top picture.
Our class has been learning all about signs of spring, including insects, birds, trees, flowers, and rainbows! We have also been enjoying the activities that come with spring: bikes, skipping, the climber, soccer, and the planting of trees.
Today we made yummy banana muffins that were both nutritious and delicious. We also wondered about how rainbow are formed, if they are solid, or whether we could put our hand right through one.
We had an awesome presentation by Loretta Penny, who should us many skeletons and skins from animals. She taught us the importance of preserving animals and how aboriginal people used animals in every day life.
We played in the sun with our book buddies on the climber and in the playground. The children challenged their bodies doing flips and pulling themselves across the play structure and watch as the pebbles tumbled down the slide. It was so much fun!
A reminder that tomorrow is library day.
Have an awesome night!

Well we have been continuing to learn about the important role trees play in our lives. They provide us with food, shelter, shade, oxygen, and so much more. We learned a big and important word, photosynthesis. This is the process where the leaves take in the carbon dioxide that we expel and then the leaves produce and release oxygen for us to breath. The children were thrilled to see how we are both dependent on one another.
We have now planted 36 bur oak seeds. We will water them and grow 36 saplings that will be planted around our city. They children have gone for many nature walks with Mme Millan and have gathered evergreen cones. They have used their imaginations and have created so many different crafts with them: rafts, birds, airplanes, etc... It is so much fun to find things in nature and use them to create visual arts pieces.
Remember if you would like your child to participate in the following activities: Hop movie, Menchies, or Booster Juice, please send in the form(s) along with the money needed in a well labeled envelope. Merci !
Have a great night!
