En example of one of our many math challenge questions! The children have the choice to work alone or with a partner. At the beginning, year 1 (JK) children are paired with year 2 (SK) children for support. I hope to continue these fun activities in grade 1! Very excited for the opportunity and new challenge!
Our new inquiry focuses on stars! “Where do stars go in the morning?” M. S. The question that sparked it all!
Love the way the children use this Learning Carpet to reflect on and extend their learning. What math concepts are the children demonstrating here? Can you guess?
Pretty proud of where our Ancient Egypt Inquiry has taken the children! Amazing effort and learning!
Our Welcome Days have officially started! Lots of excitement to have families enjoy exploration time with their children! If you are interested in learning more about our Welcome Days, please view the link below👇 http://wondersinkindergarten.blogspot.com/search/label/Welcome%20Days?m=0
Love the creativity and perseverance happening in our classroom using our new ordered tools!
It’s the first time this inquiry topic has ever popped up! An interest in ancient ruins and the mysterious Egyptian pyramids. We have been gaining a lot of information from the various books read as well as H. G.’s visit to the ROM! The children have been expressing their knowledge at various learning areas and have been invited to sketch and paint authentic objects given to us from an educator in our school who is from Egypt!
So much creativity and learning concepts in this light table depiction of Egypt!
These friendship sketches were thought of solely by the children. When asked for ideas of what they wanted to sketch next, they all decided that sketching their friends would be fun! Each child also described how they felt or what they liked about the friend they sketched. Very proud of their attention to detail and their use of water colour paints.
