The children have been very busy getting to know one another and exploring new learning activities everyday.
Our focus has been:
- safety in our school
- nature in the Fall
Jack's Talent by Maryann Cocca-Leffler
We are very fortunate that Windsor Park and Recreation donated a tree to Prince Edward School on behalf on the Kindergarten classes. On Wednesday the students watched the gardeners plant a Maple tree on school property. Together we sang 'The Green Grass Grows' and learned that plants need water, soil, and sunlight to grow.
- Some students noticed pears in the classroom. Through discussion students predicted the pear seeds would be red, black or green. Once we cut the pear open, we discovered they were white, similar to apple seeds. Students wanted to taste our pears. Some children thought they tasted like apples while others responded that the 'pear tasted like a pear'!
