Today we had a visitor, Lindsay, (Mrs. Grant's step-daughter), who brought some snakes for us to see and learn about. She brought in 3 ball python snakes. There were 2 girls and 1 boy snake. She said these snakes are not poisonous, like some snakes are. She also taught us about the word "rodents", when we asked what her snakes like to eat. She feeds them once a week, and they like to eat mice and rats!! (ughhhh, we thought!). She also brought in a piece of skin that one of the snakes had shed. We thought it reminded us of bubble wrap. Most of us touched the snake, and even wanted to hold it!  She also showed us a photo of another snake she had at home that just laid an egg before she left home to come to see us! She said the snake still has a few bumps along its' body so it will probably lay a few more eggs.

We also went for a walk this afternoon to the Daycare playground across the street. We'll tell you more about that tomorrow!!

Weekend news

Every Monday, we develop our listening and speaking skills as we share what we have done on the weekend. We also like to write about our weekend. Here's what 3 of our students were up to this weekend…. check it out!!
(Note: Kindergarten writing at this time of year will vary according to the skills of the student. Some of the skills we are looking for include:….letters that match the sounds they hear in words, using some sight words, leaving a "finger space" between words, leaving a line space, putting something at the end of our sentence (like a period or exclamation mark), printing our letters neatly and on the line……)
   I went to McDonald's!   I went to church!   It was rainy!  I played with my sister's iPad.

Jamie Oliviero was back today as he entertained us with his storytelling and taught us about a sense of community and getting along with others. We continue to work at co-operating and learning to live/work/play together peacefully in our community.

Jamie Oliviero

Today, as part of The Integrated Arts program, Jamie Oliviero, a storyteller, came to visit us. He kept us entertained, as well as actively involving us and keeping us interested in his stories. There was a common theme to his stories…...They taught us about working together with others, and how we can help others. 

  We went on a "Wednesday Walk" today. We walked to a local park. Along the way we saw some other things that are part of our community. (mail carrier, hair dressing shop, tennis courts, planes, football club, school bus, one of our student's home, and more)

Fairy Tale Land

We are sailing into Fairytale Land!  We are learning to use our imaginations. (This is not easy for some of us.) Although many children are familiar with fairy tales that have been made into a movie, the storybook itself is not familiar to many!   We have been exploring some fairy tales and doing a variety of activities associated with them. We are also learning Nursery Rhymes, too!  
How many Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes do you know??

  Sorting the parts of the story The Three Little Pigs into -- Beginning, middle, and end

     Sorting words and putting them in order to build the
