April 25th 29th
First of all we would like to thank all of you for all the support we have received in our Recycling unit. It has been quite enlightening and it has managed to ignite in our children the spark of environmental responsibility and care. Our students have become more aware of how our actions impact our surroundings and mostly they are now taking on new behaviors to make the necessary changes that our Earth so desperately needs. The concept of reducing, reusing and recycling is now a part of their daily life and we hope you continue to support it at home. We cannot make any significant changes without everyone’s collaboration.
Our children continued to use their imagination to create their own games and random objects made of recycled materials and this gave them the opportunity to engage in some very significant interactions with their peers. Making musical instruments with the different junk materials was also a very popular activity here in class. They were also engaged in finishing off their master pieces, remember their is the art show we will have next Friday.
We continued to practice our counting, rhyming and writing skills through a variety of games and activities. These are important skills we will need to build on as we move into Kindergarten. As we soon approach the end of our school year, we are now moving on to our final unit entitled Getting Ready for Kindergarten. Therefore , exposing children to a variety of experiences that will allow them to practice specific kinder skills and objectives. The goal behind this unit is to help make the transition into Kinder much smoother, so that they feel comfortable and familiar with the changes.
