In math during September, we began to explore numbers from zero to ten. The students explored numbers by playing different games set up such as:
During September, students began to experiment and explore different sensory activities. Students got to make playdough as well as play with it, explore Montessori trays, and play with water bins. We have also begun to explore the changing season into Autumn, but still have lots to explore!
Students have begun to learn the letters to the alphabet. Ask your child about our alphabet song that has actions! They explored activities like:
The students had a blast during the Terry Fox Run! A lot of students wore their crazy socks, including Ms. Solymar, Mrs. McNab, and Mme. Gamberg! Thank you to those parents who came out to support us!
Coming Up in October!
We think October is going to fly by just like September did! Especially with all of the fun activities that we have planned!
This week, the class has started writing in their own personal journals. In English, they write about their weekend. They start by drawing a picture and then work with Ms. Solymar or Mrs. McNab to write what they drew. In French, we are starting to work on letter sounds with songs and letter journals.
We will continue to work on learning our letters and numbers both through whole group activities and small inquiries during centers. We will also continue with our learning about the season Autumn, and we are even making our dramatic play area into a ‘fall garden’! Thanksgiving and Halloween are the perfect opportunity to start to learn about celebrations and traditions that our own families have!
We also have our first class birthdays coming up this month, so it will be exciting to see how birthdays will be made special in our classroom!
