We explored sound by holding seashells up to our ears,and texture by feeling hospital gloves filled with beans, flour, sand, rice, and popcorn kernels and describing what we felt.
I added these materials and more to our discovery table for students to explore independently: mirrors, jingle bells, magnifying glasses, colour mixing glasses, sorting cards...
That led us nicely into our 2 week study on food. Last week, we practiced our emergent reading skills with an easy reader book on lunch. Students underlined every time they saw the words 'Je mange'.
We will round out this week with a writing activity for our end-of-year-portfolio, as well as a Bingo game on food. Then we will get on to the important business of celebrating the holidays. Santa is already making a regular appearance in pictures the students are drawing at bricolage! I have planned many exciting activities for the month of December. Stay tuned for our class newsletter, as well as exciting opportunities to volunteer in-class!
