Welcome back to PK3.3
11th - 13th November
Welcome back everyone and a special welcome to our new student Rodrigo!
I hope you all had a restful break with family and friends. It was wonderful to see how excited the children were see each other again and how well they got back into class routines.
We had a new student join us this week so please say a big "Hello!" to Rodrigo if you are passing by our classroom.
Did you use a box today?
This week we began our new study unit about BOXES. We have already collected a few different boxes but we need more! Please send different types of boxes from home so the children can continue their explorations.
On Wednesday I asked the children "did you use a box today?" After some pondering they shared that their breakfast cereal came from a box, their juice for snack was in a box and some even used a box to clean up their toys!
We spent some time examining our box collection and asked another question "what do you notice about these boxes?" Some children noticed they had a lot of sides; we counted them together and talked about how each side is called a FACE because it’s the part that faces out. Other children commented on the CORNERS, so we explained that is the point where the faces meet on a box.
Rain never stops play in PK!
We have watermelons in the garden!
ISP is very excited to present BEAUTY AND THE BEAST . Next week middle and high school students will be performing this beautiful musical in the PAC. We would LOVE to have lots of elementary families in attendance, please see below for details of times and tickets. We look forward to seeing you there!
