This week, the children finally met all their classmates in PK1rén. They are learning our classroom routines such as taking their water bottle and folder out during welcome time and washing hands before snack time. During circle time, we played beanbag games and sang songs to get to know each other's names. Furthermore, we talked about a few classroom agreements such as: walking in the classroom, raise your hand before speaking when you want to say something, share, only three children are allowed up on the loft at one time, stay in line and follow the person in front of you when traveling within the school. The children were able to meet three of our specialist teachers: Mrs. Cook, our P.E. teacher, Mr. Nick, our music teacher and Miss Sarah, our art teacher. Next week, they will meet their G2 buddies and Mr. Malik, our I.T. teacher.
We had a great first week in school! The children were happy to meet their new classmates and were able to explore a variety of materials and toys in class. The children were also introduced to a few classroom routines like lining up before going to the bathroom, checking the class schedule to see what's happening next and doing "Stop, Look and Listen," when the bell rings. The children had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Cook, our P.E. teacher, Miss Carla, our primary school counselor and they will get to meet the other specialist teachers in the coming days. Below you will see the photos of our students. Please click on the photos to see their names.
During this first week, the children were introduced to a variety of toys and materials and class. The loft and the kitchen have been quite popular with a lot of our students. The children also had the opportunity to explore our early childhood playground and early childhood common area. In the next coming days, they will get to see and experience their music and P.E. learning environments as well.
