Puzzle Experts

"It was so easy to build. We just matched it like a matching game."

A puzzle record!  These boys created the 60 piece puzzle in under five minutes by working together!

Graphic Organizers

We've been exploring different graphic organizers during our whole group time to help us organize information. Today we used an idea cloud to show what we know about seeds. Why don't you ask your child about this and perhaps use an idea cloud together in order to practice some writing at home?

Indoor Chalk Drawing

Rain?  No problem!  We drew with sidewalk chalk on a large piece of butcher paper in our room.

Pattern Block Pictures

The children created 2-D pictures using pattern blocks at our math centre. Many chose to make spring flowers 

Planting Seeds

We have been reading many stories about seeds and how plants grow. To help children experience the joy of gardening we set up a planting station in the classroom today. 

There were five choices of vegetables to choose from - beans, cucumbers, peas, carrots, and tomatoes. 

The children were responsible for filling their cup with soil, choosing what type of seed they wanted to plant, planting it, and giving it some water. 

We hope to see some sprouts growing when we return from after the Easter weekend!

Spring Playscape

Our light table was busy with signs of spring today!  Flowers and butterflies were everywhere!

It was fun to engage in a bit of imaginative play at this playscape. Others sorted the materials by size and colour. 

Making Smoothies!

What a fun treat!

What is this?

We placed an interesting artifact from our yard on the science table today and invited the children to explore it and make guesses as to what they thought it might be. 

The children used magnifying glasses to get a closer look. 

They then recorded their ideas on a communal piece of paper.
