On Tuesday, both groups celebrated Shrove Tuesday. We learned that many people enjoy a treat on this day before Lent begins. We made pancakes - what a great learning opportunity. We practised our reading and measuring skills by following a recipe. We helped pour, mix, and cook! They were delicious (or at least the syrup was :) )
It was fun seeing many students at the Mardi Gras celebration in our gym our Tuesday. We heard lots of stories about the party the following day. Thank you to parent council for organizing such a wonderful event for our school.
In the morning, we had our kinder Valentines Day celebration. We split the kinders up into groups and rotated through different centers. Students got to make a love bracelet, decorate a Valentine's Day cookie, create and cast a love potion, and participate in Valentine's Day obstacle courses in the gym! Thank you to the fantastic parent volunteers who came in that morning and helped out our groups. We really appreciate it!
The afternoon was spent exchanging Valentine's, reading Valentine's Day books and having little dance parties! So fun.
A new inquiry began in the Turtles room this week! They are interested in all things spies. Students have been creating the gear they think spies need. They figured out how to make walkie-talkies from our recyclables and want to assemble a spy kit next week. They even cracked some letter/symbol codes that were left out for them!
