Last week, we began learning about bears and hibernation. We read two stories and sang a hibernation song. We repurposed Primary 1’s gingerbread house and changed it into a bear liar. We added some cotton to make it look like snow. We prepared our liar for the winter by adding blankets, pillows, books and make believe food from our kitchen. The children are enjoying some quiet reading time in their liar.
We will continue to focus on personal space, problem solving and taking turns.
This week the Mystery Box will go home with Nicholas. This is a great way to get the children excited about learning about their five senses, learning about attributes, adjectives and problem solving. Your child should choose one item to put in the box. Please write down three clues to help the children guess what is inside, (such as - it is hard, it is soft, you can wear it on your head if it is a hat). After we have used all three clues we will reveal what is inside the box.
