Forest Exploration

Have you ever wondered what we do when we visit the forest?
So much learning is happening when we spend time exploring in the forest.

20181231-224211.jpgThe children create a camp fire in the forest and pretend to roast marshmallows.

20181231-224231.jpgThe children work together to roll a large log. They use their strong arms and legs to complete this task.

20181231-224247.jpgUsing a stick to point, counting the logs is another fun thing to do in the forest.

20181231-224256.jpgIt is also lots of fun to build habitats for the animals, birds and critters that live in the forest.

20181231-224304.jpgWe keep the forest safe by moving rocks out of the way so that no one trips.

Play dough making fun!

This week the children enjoyed measuring and mixing play dough for the classroom! We used a recipe and measuring cups and spoons. We took turns adding ingredients to the bowl. Lots of great math and sensory fun!

Sun safety

Kindergarten B made special sun safety bracelets. When you go out in the sun they change colour if the suns rays are strong. We also have been playing with an awesome colour changing frisbee that changes colour if the sun is strong. We learned all about the 5 S’s of sun safety. A big thank you to the Huron county health unit for providing us with these awesome learning materials.
