What a terrific trip! Students worked hard playing and exploring the different and incredible play spaces in Wendy’s House. It is an amazing place with lots of objects to spark a child’s imagination.

Another item to foster a child’s imagination is a book! Next, we headed to the Vancouver Island Public Library to learn about great stories. The children’s librarian read us a book by Mo Willems titled That Is Not A Good Idea. It had a suspenseful ending. Students received their own library card to sign out a book. In addition to being able to take books out from the library, children can “take out” books online at http://virl.bc.ca/kids. This is fantastic for Family Literacy Day coming up January 27th.

Doctor, Doctor Game

 

Playing for fun is the object of these games. In Crazy Coconuts, teams take the other team’s coconuts (beanbags) from their trees (hula hoops). Students have been following the rules, playing fair and developing strategies to work together. In Doctor, Doctor, teams knock the other monkeys off the bed. If knocked off (ball hits you, you sit down), the doctor delivers you to the hospital (hula hoops) for a check-up (count to 10 in the hula hoop). Throughout the play, teamwork and sportsmanship are demonstrated. Students have been throughly enjoying these games.

Little Green Peas

peas4Before reading these two great stories featuring green peas, Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and L M N O Peas by Keith Baker, students inferred by using the sentence frames “I wonder if the peas…” or “Maybe the peas are going to…” During the stories, students connected to their funny jobs from acrobat to zoologist that the peas enjoyed. After the stories, students wrote and illustrated their own job a pea could do. Students were delighted to use their imagination to create a picture that told a story.

Roll-A-Winner

Sam & Alex Talking About Numbers

Sam & Alex Talking About Numbers

Students practiced numbers from 1 to 6 by rolling, counting and recognizing dot patterns on dice. With the help of their big buddy, they recorded their number after three rolls. If you rolled a winner (5 the same), then you could celebrate with a victory dance. Everyone had a great time!

This week the fruit and veggie program featured kiwi. We learned that you can eat the outer skin of the kiwi, as well as the sweet fruit inside. Just like eating an apple! Some students loved it, while others decided to take it home to share with their family.

Monkeying Around

Students created their own monkey adding to the ambiance of the island theme. They were delighted to choose colours for their monkey. Students were also responsible for cutting and assembling the parts. Each monkey has its own personality, much like each student.
