Check out what’s going on in K1C!

Dear parents,

Thank you so much for making Teacher Appreciation Day so special! The treats were wonderful and the children’s cards and crafts were the best!

UN Day was fantastic this year. The children were very proud to wear their National Dress and to participate in the activities. We are focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goal #4, which is Quality education. We made a class book which talks about the many reasons some children cannot attend school and what we love about our school. We also made a collaborative piece of art which connects all of our home countries together. You can take a peek at both of these when you visit during open classrooms this week. And of course, the assembly and shared lunch was lovely.

In Math, we are beginning to inquire into shapes and patterns. The children have been quite creative in their thinking. They were also introduced to a new game called Treasure Hunt and have been cooperatively playing with a partner.

Phonics has really taken off in our classroom. The children are constantly coming up with words to add to our Alphabet Book. You can peek at this during your visit next week :). You may even be hearing some letter sounds from your children at home. The letter crafts are also a big hit and incorporates fine motor skills as well. Book making is also a favorite at our writing table. This is a student initiated activity and is gaining popularity. Last week there were computers being made too!

We were lucky enough to leave the ECC twice last week to attend two fun events. Grades 2-5 had a Sports Day and we were able to walk over to the fields and cheer them on. Then on Thursday, we met our Grade 3 Buddies who showed us the new playground and how to safely play on the equipment.

Lastly, we have just begun our new UOI and are planning some fun field trips as part of the unit. Stay tuned for more information.

Have a lovely Sunday!

Deborah & Thu
