February News from Room 1!

As we move into the exciting second term of our Kindergarten Journey, we enter into our magical theme "Winter Wonderland."  

Over the next few weeks, your child will be involved in a variety of activities, including the following: sorting mittens, creating mitten patterns, and ordering from largest to smallest, sequencing winter activities, counting buttons on snowmen, using counters to solve basic addition and subtraction problems, measuring the length of a mitten, using non-standard units of measure, identifying the four seasons, creating frosty winter scenes, reciting winter poems and songs.  

Our "Winter Wonderland" started off by reading the book entitled "The Mitten" by Jan Brett.  The students were able to retell their version of the story using the characters of the story followed by sequencing the events of the story as it unfolded.  

Our Dramatic Centre will start as a puppet theatre, where students will use a collection of puppets to act out their own winter stories.  After that, the theatre will change into a winter café where the students can use tea pots, hot chocolate mugs, serving trays, menus, and a cash register for their imaginative and creative play.  

​The Listening and Reading Centre will continue to provide literature-rich environments filled with fiction and non-fiction books for our winter theme.

Our letters of the month are w for winter, g for gloves, and f for frost.  Our number is 5.  Your child will continue to work through a variety of activities that reinforce the proper formation of both letters and numbers.
Once again, thank you for your continued support.
