Kinder Updates

We have had an exciting time in kindergarten this week! We got a surprise of some eggs that are being kept in an incubator to kick off our new inquiry into eggs and the life cycle of a chicken! We didn’t know what animal/creature the eggs belonged to at first and brainstormed some cool ideas: snake, sea turtle, lamb, chick, crocodile, rabbit, penguin, platypus, snake and butterfly. We also started drawing diagrams of our observations and are currently on Day 7 of the incubation period. We can’t wait to see how much the chick has changed by next week!

A couple updates:

  • The Calgary Reads Book Sale is a FANTASTIC opportunity to add to your home selection at the same time supporting an amazing organization to help early readers! It’s this weekend May 10-12.
  • In-Line skating is Monday and Thursday next week, so please don’t forget to send helmets!
  • NO SCHOOL next Friday May 17th and Monday May 20th
  • Walk and Wheelie Wednesday – this is a school-wide initiative to encourage families to ditch the vehicles and walk or ride your bikes/skateboards/scooters to school on Wednesdays! Feel free to do the same on the other days too though 🙂

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend celebrating your Moms, Grandmothers or Mom-figures in your life! Happy Mothers Day!

Class Updates

Just a few updates:

*If your child is unable to do up their shoe/boot laces confidently on their own, please do not send them to school. Instead, send slip ons or velcro instead.

*I have a few things that need to be done, so if you are interested and available to help please comment below and let me know. Some things can be done in class, but for those working parents who would like to help out, it can be done at home too! Thank you SO MUCH in advance!

*I sent an email home today with the Alien In-Line skating information letter. We will be starting next week, so it is important to read all the information prior to Monday. Our class is scheduled to skate on May 8, 13 & 16. Protective gear is provided, however it is highly recommended to bring their own helmets. A regular bike helmet is great!

Alien Skating Parent Letter

*We will be hosting some eggs in kindergarten and we are all VERY excited and curious to see what will hatch! We read the book “What Will Hatch?” and journaled our predictions of what will hatch. My personal favourite is baby crocodiles… so we’ll have to wait and see!

 

 

Comfy Day & Science Centre Field Trip

Comfy Day has been moved to Thursday, November 17th. Pajamas are allowed! Please do not send any teddy bears and/or toys this day.

Here is some important information about our Science Centre Field Trip:

Both field trips will require ALL STUDENTS to be at school at 8:05 and come in for attendance. Please send a picnic lunch (easy and quick to eat) in a backpack to bring on the field trip.

If you would like to volunteer, there will be a spot on the form for you to fill out. We will need 3-5 volunteers per class. If we have too many volunteers, I will draw names and ensure that you will get a chance on the next field trip.

Alien In-line skating – volunteers will be needed for helping to tie skates. The schedule is not yet fully confirmed, so further information will be coming in the next couple days.
