The end of year is fast approaching and there has been a lot happening in Kinder B! We have been continuing to learn about different jump out words (sight words) as well as learning about rhyming words and syllables. We have been listening to different songs as well as playing games in small and large groups and on the Smart Board.
In art we have been learning about different types of lines and how we use different lines and shapes to make our art pieces.
Last week we went on our trip to the Museum of Agriculture. We were able to see lots of different animals on the farm and learn all about them. Thank you to all the parent volunteers that joined us!
In numeracy we have been learning about graphing and tallying. We have also continued with subitizing and addition.
In Science we have been continuing to learn about our butterfly life cycle. We watched our caterpillars turn into their chrysalis and then we were able to watch them hatch into butterflies! We then released them back into nature. With all the rain some of the children had lots of questions about worms. So we collected some from our yard and put them inside our special worm house. We used our special worm house to observe our worms and see how they make their tunnels. We did a science experiment about plants and how they drink water. We took some white flowers and placed one flower into a different container of food colouring. We then recorded what we thought would happen to the flowers. We learned that flowers use their stems to "drink" the water and because they were drinking up the coloured water their white petals turned the same colour as the water!
In our dramatic play centre, we opened up a flower shop. The children took turns being the customer and the cashier. The children wrapped their bouquets and then sold them to the customers using pretend coins. The children learned about our Canadian coins during this play and using interactive games on the Smart Board.
Here are some more pictures of us during play!
