It was wonderful to see the sun this week. Keep your fingers crossed that Spring is finally here! We had a busy week in Room 159. I introduced the children to 3 dimensional shapes including the sphere, the cone, the cylinder, the pyramid the cube and the prism. We have been matching shapes, exploring the "faces" of the shapes and looking for examples of 3 dimensional shapes in our environment. Watch for our new poem about 3D shapes in your child's poetry book next week.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Sharing Assembly on Thursday. The May Sharing Assembly will be Tuesday, May 28.
The children learned about Vincent van Gogh with the artist, Janeen Brownrigg on Thursday. She explained how van Gogh painted with dashes and swirls and used lots of paint in his paintings to create motion and texture. It was a wonderful day of art provided by Parent Council. Thanks so much! Please be patient as the paintings will be sent home at a later date. For additional information regarding art classes visit www.lelloartschool&gallery.com
As we begin a new cycle on the leader chart, the children will be discussing their birthdates. Thank you so much for all your assistance helping your child learn his/her phone number and address. I sent home the May calendar on Friday. Please let me know if you did not receive the May calendar. I am looking forward to hearing about your child's favourite animal.
