Thank you to all the families that came out to our 3-Way Conferences! It is always wonderful to see parents and siblings and nannies interact with our students as they share the work they are proud of. I was amazed at the growth of our students this term and so proud of all their accomplishments!
Last week was the final week of our Sharing the Planet unit. We finished up with our hamster friends, May and Bebe. We took care of them and enjoyed our furry little friends.
Throughout the unit, students learned a great deal about how human behaviour impacts living things. We explored and learned so much, inquiring into the properties of living things, how our behaviour impacts living things, and our responsibility for living things. Having our class pets really provided for a unique, hands-on experience for our Pre-Ks. They have become very knowledgeable about the difference between living and non-living things, how we take care of a variety of pets, and how we can be responsible for different animals. We look forward to the action our students take when interacting with living things in their daily lives.
What’s Happening In Our Class This Week
This week, we are taking a quick break from our UOIs, before we transition into our last unit of the year. We will be focusing on Mother’s Day and what it means, making a special surprise to show our love for our mums!
This week, we will also be focusing on our Spring Show practice. Our Pre-K Spring Show will be on April 20th. Our students will be singing and performing a version of “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”. We will be performing as a class and students will be split up into smaller groups that focus on a specific part of the song. More details will come soon about this. Please keep a look out for the e-mail and blog post that tells you what colour shirt you will need to get for your child, as we will be making our costumes for the Spring Show.
