December Kindernews

November has been a very busy month.

Thank you to all families that supported Prince Edward and collected pledges for our Aerob-a-thon. Aerob-a-thon money and all the pink pledge forms are now due. Please remember that all pink pledge sheets need to be returned to the school, even if they are blank.

We would also like to thank all parents who came to discuss their child's progress reports.

The students have voted and decided to turn our bakery into a McDonald's Restaurant. We have worked with the students to make the necessary changes--- sorting foods, moving furniture, hanging signs. The students were very excited to see that we have actual cups and food wrappers from McDonald's for them to use. A big thank you to the McDonald’s located at the corner of Tecumseh Rd E and Drouillard Rd. for their generous donations. We are excited to see the math and language skills developing from this new drama centre.

In addition to McDonald's, we have created a living room for dramatic arts. The students have babies to care for, feed, and cuddle.  Other accessories for the students to incorporate in playful learning are baby clothing, a change table, two rocking cradles, and a push buggy.  We are looking for donations of baby blankets and small doll clothes to further develop the students learning.

Upcoming Learning!!!
Our students will be continuing to learn:
  • the different units of measurement (small, medium, large)
