Hello and happy Friday!

For the last week of our “Mother Nature” theme we painted with flowers!  We dipped different flowers into red, yellow, blue, and purple paint to make lovely nature pictures!

We also went on a scavenger hunt to look for items on our scavenger hunt list.  We used our binoculars to find acorns, leaves, flowers, rocks, grass, bugs, pine cones, twigs, something yellow, and something blue. 

We continued our ABC Hand Print project with the letter “Y!”  The teacher painted our hands gray.  We pasted two eyes, some black shaggy hair, two horns, and a pink nose.  The teacher helped us draw a black tail and hooves.  Can you guess what we made?  We beastly yaks!  “Y” says “yuh yuh” yacht, yarn, yellow, yogurt, yoyo.  We colored a yellow jacket bug in the shape of a capital “Y” too! 

We reviewed and counted to the number 8!  We counted 8 hot air balloons on our worksheet!

We also recognized the color purple!  We colored a car, a ball of yarn, a bunch of grapes, an octopus, a teapot, and a flower all the color purple!

Wonderful work with “Mother Nature” this month, Little Lambs!

Have a lovely Golden Week holiday and see you in May!

Happy Friday busy bees 

This week we we read the book press here! Our friends made their own version of the book press here with red yellow and blue stickers. 

“ Press the yellow three times” said our friends reading their version of the book!

For art, our friends were able to paint using natural paint brushes. We used bamboo leaves and pine leaves we found outside. They were able to study one of the pages in the book and drew circles using primary colours. Once the picture dried, they added tissue paper circles onto the picture. Once the art dried we cut them out into three rectangles and cut triangle out on the rectangles.

The children were able to transform their art into koinobori. 

Happy long weekend. Enjoy the beautiful weather! 

See you in a week!

Hello and happy Friday!

Our last week on Earth Day is coming to a close.  For our last project we made a frame with cardboard and old color pencils.  We are recycling!

On Wednesday, we started practicing our graduation song and dance.  It’s a fun upbeat song that the children are surprisingly enjoying to do!

On Thursday, we made our Mother’s Day gift.  We used iron beads.  The children were using the tweezers and finally their fingers to put every bead in its proper place.  We had a couple of children making their own design too!  Beautiful job, your mothers will definitely love them!

Today was our special Earth Day Show and Tell.  The children were to make something out of recycled material around the house.  Of course with mommy and daddies help!  I’d like to thank our parents for always supporting the class.  The Show and Tell was so much fun and the children did so well with explaining all about it!  It was probably one of the BEST Show and Tells ever! Wonderful job children!  Excellent!

Have a fun Golden Week !
