UN DAY This week started off with a bang. We celebrated UN day which was a wonderful way to continue our conversations about community and connection. I was so proud of Discovery B as they had to sit for such a long time through some pretty intense speeches and they did it so well. We also talked about the countries we come from, some of the languages we speak as well as the different types of traditional costumes that some of the children were wearing. Here are a few photos of the day.
We are still looking at developing a strong sense of community in our classroom. This week we added our own photos to a community wheel where we will begin to add different people that are in our community to it as the weeks go on. We have been using words such as community, family, friendship and belonging to encourage discussions around the different communities. Here are some pictures of our community wheel.
Our last swimming lesson of the quarter took place this week. The children have gained more confidence in the water and have enjoyed playing games together. They will have one more session of swimming in the springtime. Here are some last pictures.
This week, cooking was an even bigger hit than usual. On the menu were fruit kababs. The children cut up pineapple, watermelon, apples, and grapes very carefully with their own knives and cutting boards. Don’t worry they only use butter knives when cutting. Then they patterned the pieces onto a skewer and Bon appetite! Even the children that aren’t too fond of fruit couldn’t resist a taste after their hard work. Enjoy the fruity pictures!!!
Our G3 buddies also came for a play on Friday. They were missing Discovery so much that they asked Ms. Chris to schedule this extra time. The weather was so beautiful outside so the children rode bikes together, played in the sandbox together and played with the big blocks
Dress up day is on Thursday, October the 31st. Please feel free to bring your child to school dressed up. We just ask that it is nothing too scary and weapons are left at home. Thanks
Have a great weekend
