A Visit to the Public Library

This afternoon we went for a walk in our community. We were looking forwards to a visit to the local Public Library. Here we go!
We saw a couple homes along the way that belonged to our classmates.
At the library, the librarian told us about the different sections of the Kid's part of the library. She pointed out the fiction and non-fiction, and special interest areas, too.

We went to a special activity room where the librarian read us the story Peanut Butter & Cupcakes by Terry Border. We really enjoyed the story!
Lori (the Librarian) told us all about a summer reading program for kids. Kids can stop by the library and sign up any time from June 22 on. There is a special package they will give you. There will also be draws for some really awesome prizes. Check it out!
We really enjoyed the puppet show!   IT was great!
  Looking for some books to sign out.
This young lady was reading the book to Mrs. J.

Thank you to Lori and the St. James-Assiniboia Public Library!

Kindergarten readers

We quite regularly take turns reading to the whole class (using the document camera). It is a popular activity and most kids look forward to it. Today over half the class had a book ready that they wanted to read! From a specific selection of books, each student tries to pick a book that is not too hard, not too easy, but just right!  (kind of like Goldilocks)
Imagination at play during centre time...

Reminder:  We are walking to the Public Library tomorrow.

Our Kinder-"garden"

This is the mural we made to brighten up the hallway.  
Kinder - "garden"...Learning and Growing Together

This is from the other day when we started painting our class mural for our kinder-"garden"

We have been watching our caterpillars grow every day. It is amazing how they grow so quickly! We wondered what it would be like to be a bug? So we made some paper grass and bugs and looked at life from a bug's perspective.

We like to sing in Kindergarten. We often end our day with singing and action songs.

The Very Hungry Caterpillars...

This morning we were very excited to find a colourful box with a mission in it for us. It involved caterpillars! We think we know what will happen because last week we read the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, br Eric Carle. Today we watched a short video about the book. We are excited to watch the caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies!
ooops.... this should read "to take good CARE of these caterpillars..."
Today we had library.....

sharing time.....bring something that starts with a vowel.
Just a reminder....
