Hello PK3.3 Parents!

This week our class has been celebrating "Bringing Literature to Life". Our chosen author was Laura Numeroff and we have been enjoying her book "If you give a mouse a cookie". A delightful story about a demanding mouse who wears out a little boy with his never-ending requests. Everyone knows that if you give a mouse a cookie . . . well, he’ll end up wanting your entire house!


Laura stories are excellent way to introduce the children to sequencing, making predictions, and identifying cause-and-effect .


We have also been enjoying Laura's other books: If you give a cat a cupcake, If you take a mouse to school and If you give a pig a pancake, to name but a few.

One of our circle time questions this week was "what's your favorite cookie?". The children took turns to choose their cookie and add it to our class chart. We learnt how to group our cookies, add them up and work out which list was bigger or smaller. And the winner? Oreos!

On Wednesday we swapped classes with PK3.1 and PK3.2 to hear what they have been reading. In PK3.1 we heard all about "Pants!" by Giles Andreae. A hilarious rhyming book about animals, people and their different pants!


Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney was waiting for us in PK3.2. Baby Llama turns bedtime into an all-out llama drama but Mama is able to set things right. A great read for any child that worries at bedtime.

Our first "Mystery Reader" !

Lowen was very surprised when Mum arrived in class to read us one of Lowen's favorite books, Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. Lowen even shared her own Knuffle Bunny with the class. Thank you for sharing!


We have more mystery readers lined up for this week but will happily make time over the following weeks for anyone wanting to come and share a story with us. Just drop me an email.

New study topic - Oceans .

Next week we will be extending our water theme and start learning about Oceans and Ocean animals.


Show and Tell is a great opportunity to have children who have visited the ocean to share mementos from their trip. I encourage you to send your child with any photos, seashells, starfish, or other items you may have to share with their classmates. The children love to share their experiences aloud in class.
