It’s been a lovely calm week in the ECC and we have enjoyed such beautiful weather. We have spent as much time outside as we can, allowing the children to move freely inside and out, and sharing our eating times with our K1A and K1C friends. Ms. Jacqui, Ms. Kristen and I love seeing friendships forming between children in the different classrooms. All of these shared experiences and activities are ways we are encouraging our children to explore the transdisciplinary theme ‘Who we are’ with the central idea: ‘We know we belong and have a sense of connection to others and the environment.’ The children are beginning to understand that we belong together in K1.
Makers Space – Thank you for all your contributions to our Maker Space – we are well-stocked with recyclable materials for our crafting projects. Thank you for your support! The children have been very excited to get creative and make their own toys.
Hot Lunches – Our hot lunch service has commenced and the children are getting used to a new lunchtime routine, setting the table, passing out cutlery and trying new foods. K1B students have been enjoying having hot lunches.
Speech & Language Screenings – Mr. Brian completed the K1 speech and language screenings this week. He has already contacted parents of students who need follow up. He will be sharing the screening information with the K1 team after the break. Mr. Brian will screen students who were absent or not yet at school in January.
Autumn Break – I hope you have a lovely holiday! K1B students have been very interested in the Earth and maps this past week. If you are traveling this holiday, it might be nice to share the route you will be traveling with your child. Perhaps they can draw a map to your destination!
If you have a meaningful photo from your holiday that your child would like to share with the class, please email it to me before Tuesday, October 20th
Zoom Mystery Reader – we will be launching Zoom Mystery Reader after our holiday. We would love to have you read a story to our class. Please find more information and the sign up sheet here.
Finally, thank you to our classroom parents, Lina and Saloni, for arranging a chance for all of you to meet up. I hope you had a wonderful time!
