On Thursday, Mrs. Taylor and Ms. Palmer's students fed the birds for the first time.
The Ontario Full-Day Early Learning Kindergarten Program states the importance of learning to demonstrate an understanding of the natural world and the need to care for and respect the environment.
Specific Expectation 3.3 - identify ways in which they can care for and show respect for the environment (e.g. feeding the birds in winter: reusing and recycling: turning off unnecessary lights at home:walking to school instead of getting a ride)
After the holidays, we will further discuss the importance of feeding the birds, create our own bird feeders, and discuss other ways to care for the environment we live in.
