Dear EY1 Families,
We have been taking very good care of our plants! We have been moving them into the sunlight and also watering them every day. We will try to plant them in the planting boxes outside!
We planted seeds in a different way. We put them in a towel, sealed them in a bag, and then taped the bag to the window. Most of us think they wont grow! We will just have to wait and see!
Ms. Andrea in the secondary school also tried to grow sea monkies and she was successful! We took a fieldtrip over to the big building to see them. They were very small and there wasnt much to see, but it was still exciting!
We moved all of our sensory play inside to avoid the pollution. Even though we stayed inside most of the week, we have still been having fun!
We also spent a lot of time getting ready for 3 way conferences. Doing assessments through playing has been a fun way to get to know the kids abilities!
International Mother Tongue Day is approaching!
Help our students appreciate the beauty and rich diversity of language. Sign up to read for International Mother Tongue Day on Wednesday, the 19th of February. Share a short story, picture book, song, poem or rhyme in your first language. It is OK if you can not translate into English. The students may not understand every word, but they will understand the idea that stories unite us and people all over the world create stories to share with children.
We are looking forward to meeting with all of you this week to discuss all the wonderful learning taking place!
