|Living, Loving, Learning in Kindergarten|
As a part of our Applied Design, Skills and Technology curriculum, we began a unit of study on Coding with Mrs. Sauer, our Teacher-Librarian. The children had fun understanding directions and how to "program" or tell something or someone how to move. We even followed 'code' ourselves - on the carpet and then on a grid mat. After moving ourselves on the coding mat, the children got to code with 'Flurb". They had to cut and paste the arrows correctly to get Flurb to the food. They all did very well!
We took part in the school Science Fair by doing our own unit of study on our five senses. We participated in a variety of activities that involved our senses - touch, smell, hearing, sight, and taste.
Using our 'feely box' to touch items. Then we sorted them by how they felt.
We also took part in "smelly centres" and "tasty centres". The children decided which smells and tastes they liked and then we graphed our favourites.
I'm Mrs. MacDonald. Welcome to a window into our kindergarten classroom. My goal of this blog is to give you an opportunity to see some of the things that we are doing at school. Enjoy!
