We have been learning about all the parts of the orchestra by helping Violet and Uncle Ollie collect the missing instruments on this great site: In class the children took turns helping Violet, but at home they may be able to do the whole adventure! If you register, the game will save where you leave off each time.

We went for a walk in our community today. We saw lots along the way: schools, sports fields, houses, fire station, RCMP station, forestry, department of transportation, etc.  We even found some wonderful firemen and police officers who offered to show us around!  Ask your child to tell you all...

What an excellent morning we had!  The farm is a facinating place to visit. There is so much to learn and lots of hands-on experiences. The children were great! They all plugged their noses at the first but quickly forgot about the smell as they explored the various parts of the dairy farm. Ask...

Because 7, 8 (ate), 9! You guessed it! We are counting up a storm in kindergarten again. We are being more careful counters now because the numbers are getting bigger. We notice that we need to keep track of what we counted and/or arrange what we are counting.Of course we are watching fun videos that make counting fun and help us visualize common arrangements for the numbers to 10. Here are some we watched recently:A Number 9 Martian Beauty: The Classic Clumsy Baker: Alligator King: Pigeons on a Wire: did you know how many children the Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe had?:  
We have been exploring our sense of sight during our "You and Your World" time. Children have noticed that some things are harder to do when you can't see! They found they couldn't catch very well or draw a picture of themselves when they were wearing a blindfold! We also discussed how, if you couldn't see, you would not be able to know the colour of things.We had fun predicting and then watching what happened when we combined the 3 primary colours (food colouring and water)  to make new colours. Here is a fun video that shows the colours we made. Do try this at home! Maria Menounos and Oscar discuss how they use their 5 senses:

The last few weeks we have been learning all about silent E.  He has so many names (Silent E, Bossy E, Magic E) but they all mean the same thing! When we see this Ee at the end of a word he makes the other vowel say it's own letter name.  There are some really cute videos that we have watched. I have put some links below for you to watch and enjoy! Try muting the sound and reading the words yourself for some extra practice.

Congratulations to all of the students for the great spelling they did last week! I have so many super spellers that it took us a long time to narrow it down to 3 children to represent the class in the gym. I was so proud of all of you.  The finalists from our class were: Carter, Brianne and Noah. They represented us very well! Way to go!
