Words of the Week:

Show & Share for October 26th:

Inquiry into Language
The SK's practiced the sound and formation of the letter ck, the students also brainstormed words that had the letters ck in it.  The students practiced their printing short words that have ck in their Journals.  I also challenged the students to word on a word search activity, students worked with a partner or in groups.

Ms. Yustin had the students engaged in a variety of gross motor and team building activities.

Mlle. Hou continued to teach the students about farm animals in French.

Unit of Inquiry
This week we are beginning our Sensation Seasons unit.  We had a lot of fun learning about the Scientific Method and used what we know to help us with our pumpkin investigation.  We wanted to find out how many seeds there were inside our class pumpkin, students had the opportunity to make a hypothesis.  We had fun cutting the pumpkin open and exploring with our senses what was inside.  Tomorrow we will continue our investigation and count how many seeds there are, once it has dried.

The students focused on their first Music test today.

The students continued to work on patterning, using manipulatives and worksheet.  The students worked in groups to create AB patterns and had to show their understanding with an activity sheet.
