As a result, we will use another room in the school for both nutrition breaks to keep this student safe in our classroom. We will be diligent about hand washing both before and especially after eating.
A note was sent home with each child today. Please see below.
The children were delighted to learn a new dance taught by a parent volunteer. This is an Italian dance called, Tarantella. This is a dance that is common in southern Italy where you need to quickly move your feet to avoid being bitten by tarantulas. We had a lot of fun! We also learned how to count to ten in Italian. Thank you so much for coming in and sharing, Nadia!
Uncle Travelling Matt sent us a package yesterday. Inside were 53 teeny, tiny painted lady caterpillars. There are only about 4mm long. We were asked to share them with all of the kindergarten classes. Some students took to the task of dividing the caterpillars equally amongst the 4 classes. They figured out that each class should receive 13 caterpillars; however we had one extra. Bravo, les amis ! A few of the children delivered the caterpillars to the other kindie classes.
We will watch as the caterpillars shed their skin a few times, crawl up to the top of the container and form themselves into a "J", create a chrysalis, and transform into beautiful butterflies. This is so exciting!
One student was very interested in this process, so we researched a little more on the Internet and found some delightful pictures to print and colour.
The floor was becoming quite wet with all of the water play, that we decided to bring this play outside. Oh, what a beautiful day!
