PK3.1 Weekly Newsletter

April 29th, 2016- Week 33

Hello Pk Parents,

This week we continued our pet units. Our first question this week was how many times a day do we feed our pet? Before we answered we discussed the different parts of our day (morning, noon, and night) and what we do during those times. Just like our domestic animals we found that we eat more than once a day. Most days we have a snacks outside of our larger meals. We took a look at the fish food and found that we should feed our gold fish 2 times a day, once in the morning and once before Ms. Giselle and I leave school. We discussed the difference between herbivores, omnivores and carnivores and the different animals that fall in to those categories. The kids and I looked at different types of teeth or lack there of, on some domestic and wild animals. We found that most of the herbivores have teeth that go straight across, such as a horse and goat, while carnivores often have sharper teeth with fangs. We finished up our art projects that will be ready for viewing next Friday during the art show! The kids are so excited to show you the different creations they made and are even more ready to take them home! The theme for this years art show is The 5 Senses. We did our best to create projects that represent sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell. The children have been working hard on these different projects for weeks so please try your best to join us on that day for a great cause! Inside our centers we added some new games. One of our tables had a gold fish picture with cheerios and a dice. The children were asked to roll the dice and count how many bubbles to give the fish. Our 2nd table was one for sensory and the touch sense. We added some sea animals to a large bin adding shaving cream to completely cover them. They had to use their touch to try and feel the animal we asked for. In garden the kids tasted papaya grown freshly from our garden, they planted sunflowers and rotated in the outdoor centers. In GMD the kids practiced their balancing skills and catching skills with small balls. Thursday we were unable to go to the play ground due to rain, so we had an extra long choice time ending the day with part of the movie Tarzan. Don't forget NO SCHOOL MONDAY MAY 2nd.



Have a fabulous weekend!

May 4th- ISP will once again be celebrating Pink Shirt Day in Panama on Wednesday May 4th. This is an initiative that started in Canada and is now celebrated internationally. It's objective is to unite people against bullying and bullying behaviors. In 2015, a former ISP student, Rosa Parks, helped to launch Pink Shirt Day in Panama by creating an NGO (non-governmental organization) that will serve to educate school communities in Panama about bullying. Her organization is working with a team of psychologists that volunteer and meet with various members of the school community to educate them on this pertinent topic.Please send your children wearing something PINK on Wednesday as we unite to stop bullying.
