It has been a wonderful first week back and start to Term 2! We are so happy to have some new friends in class and everyone has been so welcoming. This week the children introduced their new friends to the classroom and helped show them where things were and some of our favourite songs and dances that we do everyday.
We have started a new theme, 'Seasons.' It has been a great introduction as we have had some interesting weather this week from, hot and sunny to pouring rain and even a little bit chilly. We have introduced a new song called, 'hows the weather.' Everyone loves the actions to this song and now they have started to sing it while we are playing outside.
For language arts this week, the children worked in groups to paint different seasons on the trees. We talked about what we can do during the different seasons and which ones are cold and hot. They loved seeing the various colours for fall and spring. I was so proud of everyone as they were able to answer simple questions about things we can do outside during summer or winter months.
During cooking class this week, we made a breakfast smoothie which turned out delicious. They loved helping cut the banana and picking up frozen strawberries. We had fun counting out how many strawberries we wanted inside our smoothie as well as how many pieces of banana. Everyone even made sure to have a little taste after it was done!
Next week we will focus on 'Spring' for our topic. For show and tell can you please bring in something that has to do with spring weather such as, 'flowers, rain coat, umbrella ect.'
Have a wonderful weekend!
