In Kindergarten, we are learning about practices that contribute to our health, including healthy eating. This week, our vocabulary words were fruits. At snack time, I encouraged students to apply the vocabulary we are learning in simple sentences: "Je mange une pomme."
Thank you to les mamans who volunteered during Apple Day. Students rotated through 4 learning centers: a tasting center where we graphed our favourite apples, a fine motor center where we beaded apple cinnamon cheerios on pipecleaners to make bracelets, a science center where we used our 5 senses to observe apples and compare their heights and weights, and an art center where we painted with apples like stamps.
Later on, we also measured how many apples tall we are, made apple patterns, sang apple songs, and made apple puppets.
Enjoy your weekend, and if you get a chance, maybe check out the apple festival at UBC.
