For those who have not, there are still times available act quickly to find a time that best suits your needs.

We will be going to the theatre on the 21st of this month.  If you would like to come along with us, please let us know.  Any parent that would like to come is welcome.

We will be doing an art activity for thanksgiving where the need to all have a toilet paper roll.  If possible, please send one toilet paper roll to school with your child next week.


If you have not already retuned the Christmas schedule form for your child’s schedule over the holidays, please do so as soon as possible.

Our learning

Art: Over the course of the next couple of weeks, the children will build their own bird houses.  This week the children took some time to design their bird houses in detail.  The children came up with some great ideas for their bird houses!

Language Development:  This week children continued to play the action game.  One child picked cards with a verb printed on them and acted those verbs out while the other children tried to guess what action was being performed.  This game increases vocabulary and introduces verbs as action words.  We also did some pronunciation along with a game where the children identify a picture of and say 1 of 100 English words on the iPad.

Math: this week we continued to work with the children individually at their own particular pace.  More children are becoming interested in math.  Next week we will begin to have "peacock dollars".  We have the idea that this will be a great tool for some of the children who may not be so eager to learn math in a conventional way.

Science:  This week the children did a "sink or float" activity.  The children put different objects into a bowl full if water to see which ones would float or if they would sink.  Along with this we tried to predict whether or not an object would sink or float, discussed why some objects sank or floated and separated the object accordingly.

Clothing: Please send your children to school prepared for winter weather. In addition to rain clothes, please send something heavier for the children to wear underneath. Also, please send your child to school with a beanie, waterproof shoes or rain boots and extra socks.

Gym time: This week our gym time was fairly short.  The children were very eager to go outside to the park so we played "duck, duck, goose" then left to the park where the children had plenty of time and space to play freely.  We will be changing the setup of our gym area soon!  We will keep you up to date. We would also like to ask that EVERY child have indoor shoes to help prevent any accidents while we have activities in the gym.
