With Spring finally here we are so excited to take some of our learning outdoors. In Science we have been working on concepts of solids, liquids, gases as well as what objects sink or float. Our design project will allow us the opportunity to take floating objects outside to test on the puddles. For Earth Day we made green cookies, earth art projects and did some great writing about how we plan to care for our planet.
For our literacy studies we learned about short and long vowels and about blends like bl, cl and br. We continue learning new vocabulary in Spelling, we do daily writing, practice phonics through talking, writing and with hands-on worksheets. We read in so many ways; paired reading of mini-booklets, individual & group guided reading with the teacher, levelled reading of classroom books and daily reading on our Smartboard, just to name a few.
For Mother's Day we created beautiful art on towels with our handprints in paint and learned a poem to read to our mothers.
We have been learning about the 7 Sacred Teachings, and so far, we have worked on Wisdom and Respect. We were introduced to the animals Bucky Beaver who represents Wisdom and Bobbie Bison for Respect. We plan to hear about Truth, Love, Humility, Honesty, and Courage before the end of June.
We look forward to sight word scavenger hunts and other educational activities outside in the warm sunny weather!
