Sept 18-22 September 18, 2017

It’s the second full week of school, and we’re already coming in to class like we’ve been doing this all year. We have a busy week ahead, here’s what’s up:

In literacy and science we are learning about colours. We will be reading the big book, “Do You See Colours?” and we will be focusing on the sight word ‘see’. We will be learning about primary and secondary colors and having some fun science experiments to go along with it!

We will continue creating our alphabet line with the letters G,H,I,J, and K.

In math we will be talking about counting and all of the different ways to count.

Here are some pictures from last week:

Have a great week! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns,

Welcome to KD! September 11, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 1:59 am

I am very excited to welcome you all to Kindergarten and to KD. I think we are going to have a great year and I look forward to working with you all and your children. We have already had two great days, and I believe that we will hit the ground running on Monday.

This week we will work on our number line as well as our ABC line with numbers 2-6 and letters B-F. We are taking a number/letter of the day and creating our own lines with these. I believe it’s best to do these with the children as it gives them meaning and the children understand why they are up on the wall.

We will be reading the book Corduroy and talking about what it means to be a friend, and we will work together to create our “Classroom Norms”- what our responsibilities are as members of our classroom community.

I hope to see you all at Meet the Teacher, we have a lot to talk about!

2 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL! June 27, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 1:00 am

It’s hard to believe but your child is just two days short of completing Kindergarten! Can you believe it? It seems like just a week ago they were coming in all bright eyed and excited about the new year. Now, they are old hands. It’s a bittersweet time for sure!

Just a few notes about these last two days:

Tuesday morning is our Field Day. We spend the morning, before recess, outside playing some fun games and relays. It’s always a fun morning. We’ll come in and have a regular rest of the day.

Wednesday is the last day of school. Report Cards will be going home this day. We will have a fun day, and we’ve all been talking about maybe a movie in the afternoon. If anyone wants to send in some treats, you are more than welcome to, but please do not feel obligated!

We had some fun with musical instruments this year, and telling stories with music. Today we recorded ourselves telling a couple of stories, and tomorrow we will record ourselves with some songs. My plan is to load them onto a powerpoint (that seems to be the easiest way to transfer videos and audios). I will share them via e-mail with all of you.

I can’t wait to find out the story of this block! Whatever it is, it certainly looks intense! I wonder what that poor guy did to be put behind bars!

And just as we were getting ready to go home, the dumpster came right outside our window! Of course we had to watch to see what they would do with it. The hydraulics were our favourite part, by the way!

 

It has been a pleasure working with your children and you this year. Please enjoy your summer, and please take time to do absolutely nothing but play!

Field Trip! June 21, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 6:06 pm

Tomorrow is the big day! I don’t foresee it being postponed, but listen to the radio just in case.

Remember to send: sunscreen and bug spray, a snack, lunch, and a hat!

Can’t wait, this is always such a fun day!

Amazing how time flies. We’re finishing up some assessments, getting everything all put together, and a in a few short days this school year will be over. I am sure most of you are just wondering where the time has gone! We will be sending home permission slips for our field trip to Kings Castle tomorrow (Tuesday). It is June the 22 (rain date is the 23), and the only cost is $1.50 for ice cream. If there are any parents who would like to meet us there, please feel free to do so! It’s a fun day of playing outside, having a picnic, and just enjoying nature.

We had a special visitor today! Parker Grimmer, Director of the Public Schools Branch was in to read to us!

We have finished up studying about plants, and for the next two weeks will be reading stories about sunshine, summer, and outdoors. In math we will be having fun with some measurement. Even though we’re winding down, we still have books to read and stories to write!

How We Play June 2, 2017

I know I’ve been a bit remiss in updating the blog, but I wanted to show you the great work and play we are doing. It’s that time of year when I start to see all of the pieces that they’ve learned over the year start to come together, and it’s amazing to me. To watch them writing because they just have a story they want to tell, to see them creating in the art area and having the freedom to really extend their work beyond just paper and crayons. Your children have come so far from September!

 

Look out world! Here we come!

Hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend, I know I enjoyed more than a few lobsters! We’re now on the downward slide for kindergarten, which is so hard to believe since it seems like it was just September not that long ago! But your children are doing great, and ready for summer and grade 1.

Not a lot to write about this week- We’ll be reading Quiet in the Library, still working on our reading and our writing, and still learning about 3D shapes in math.

A BIG reminder: No School for Kindergarten only on Friday! as that is the day next years kindergarteners come to visit! Time is passing by so quickly!

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know!
