April 2018 Week 3
Hello and happy Friday!
For our “Mother Nature” theme we made binoculars! We used toilet paper rolls, origami paper, and tape to create our own binoculars! We decorated them with stickers of plants and animals. We’re looking forward to using our binoculars at the park for our upcoming scavenger hunts!
We discussed the weather. We made our own thunderstorms with gray paint, blue rain drops, and yellow lightning!
We learned April 22nd is Earth Day so we made a special earth day craft. We colored a coffee filter with blue and green markers. We sprayed some water to make the colors mix together to create the earth! We got the whole world in our hands, just like the song!
We continued our ABC Hand Print project with the letter “X!” The teacher painted our hands black. We pasted a white triangle shaped head and pasted an eye. We pasted on one long white rectangle and four short white rectangles. Can you guess what we made? We x-ray fish! The white rectangles made up the fish bones! “X” says “kss kss” x-ray, xylophone. We colored an x-ray fish in the shape of a capital “X” too!
Outstanding job this week, Little Lambs!
Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!

Happy Friday busy bees!
We continued with the colour theme and one of our favourite book mix it up.
Our friends made their own version’s “magic touch” from the book.
“Loooots of dots!” and “so many colours!” were the things children realized from their art work.
They traced their own hand for their art work too!
Following our colour theme and tracing hands, our friends mixed the primary colours on their hands and made hand prints. Those hand prints were then cut out into hand shapes. We made flowers with our art work.
We’ve also started working with loose materials and mirror.
We saw our friends make their names, some made their favourite characters and we saw some friends make their family members!
We continued with graphing. We sorted and graphed animals for numeracy. We compared which animals were most at the zoo and which animal were the least. We counted the animals, placed them carefully on the graph.
At the park, our friends have found various things that our yellow, red and blue! They took lots of interest in looking at the dandelion. "Its yellow! Our primary colour!!!"
Happy Friday! Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Hello and happy Friday!
The RR’s and CC’s did several activities this week. On Monday, the children worked on making an Earth Day poster by reusing our community map poster that we had on our wall. They brainstormed ideas and put them on the poster. The poster is on the wall of our room!
On Tuesday, the children finished the poster by adding drawings and on Wednesday, they melted broken crayons. The children pounded the crayons with a toy hammer to make the crayons into smaller pieces. Each child scooped the pieces of crayon into silicon shapes which were put in the oven to be melted. Crayons can be reused!
On Thursday, we took a walk to Arisugawa Park. We had our Scavenger Hunt. We headed for the pond first. We brought some bread to feed the koi fish. The children had so much fun feed them. Too bad for the duck that joined in later, we only had a small amount of bread left for her. We sat to go over the things on our scavenger list. As we walked around the park we checked those things. The last item on the list was to find something amazing and guess what we found? A green caterpillar hanging on a thin spider web finding its way down! That was awesome! What a fun day!
Have a great weekend!
