October is gratitude month at JQ, and to kick it off our PAC had the idea of making cards for Krystyna. Students drew something that made them happy to help cheer up our Principal. Get well soon Krystyna!
We have been learning our autumn words this week, so we made a little booklet on autumn leaves. This also reinforced our colour vocabulary from last week. Madame modelled this activity on the board. Some of us found this a little tricky. We talked about how in Kindergarten, we try our best. We're all learning!
We finished off our week with an autumn scavenger hunt around the school grounds. Together with our Big Buddies, we searched for leaves in the many colours of autumn. Our Buddies did a fantastic job helping, so a GROS MERCi to the fabulous Grade 4's in Madame Angel's class. I overheard many delighted students greeting squirrels: "Bonjour écureuil!"
We made beautiful artwork out of our found treasures. Students explored texture by rubbing oil pastel over leaves. I encouraged the students to use all the many colours of autumn. We finished off the week by singing our new song, "C'est l'automne."
