It’s finally May! I don’t know about you, but May has been a long time coming. Here’s hoping the weather warms up and the sun shines brighter!
Here’s what’s up for this week:
Our Spring Concert is Tuesday at 1:10 and 6:00. Please remember to have your child wear a white t-shirt and blue jeans or overalls. The theme is planting and growing a garden/farm. I can tell you that you will LOVE it! The kids have been working so hard and they sound so good. I know we are all looking forward to it!
Because of the concert on Tuesday, Monday will be spent both in class doing our regular work as well as practicing for Tuesday.
We will be concluding our study of numbers 1-10 this week. We also read a really great book during Shared Reading time called “One Duck Stuck”. If you were to go to the provincial library website and went on their Tumble books link, you could find the book in there. It’s a great story that emphasizes rhyme, number, and working together, among other things. We’ll be doing activities around this book this week as well.
We have finished up our study on Rhinoceros and here are some pictures:
The biggest take-a-way I think we all learned was that the white rhino eats grass while other rhino’s eat leaves. But we learned how much they weigh, and how tall they are. We used our measuring skills to see how tall we are compared to the rhinoceros and how much we weigh compared to the rhinoceros. We learned that all of the students in our class put together weigh as much as a small rhinoceros! We had a lot of fun with this, I am on the lookout to see what else we may want to learn about! I’ll let you know.
