Wellness Week and Puppets!

Wellness Week
This week was Wellness Week.  We started each day connecting with the UNIS community on Zoom for some wellness fun.  We did aerobics, yoga, and dancing with our wonderful PE teachers.  The challenges were really tricky but made us laugh.  You can try some of the Wellness challenges at home:

Plank That Song

Floor to Standing Challenge

Balance Challenge

 

Unit of Inquiry
In our Unit of Inquiry this week we have been exploring the elements (earth, wind, water, and fire) through drawing, music, movement and dance. We reflected on how these make us feel.  What is your favourite element and why?  How does it make you feel?

Literacy
We have been expressing our creative ideas through the form of a puppet play.  We have started making our own puppets of our favourite characters. Next week we will begin to create settings and story problems for these puppets. We will then practice and share our puppet story with our class. This has been a great way to not only tell stories, but express ourselves as well.

Reading at home
We have really loved reading in class in large groups and small groups.  You can read at home on Raz kids too!  Each week I will assign 3 books for you to read.  Please read these and feel free to read more too:)
