This week we took our first trip to the library to take out a book. Our library day is Wednesdays so please help your child remember to bring back the book again next Wednesday. If the book is returned, s/he will be able to get a new one. Your child needs to transport his/her book back and forth between school and home in a bag to keep it clean and dry.
We met Fabienne, who works in the library. She helped us with checking the book out on the computer.
There are so many books to choose from!!
We had gingerbread men for our snack on Tuesday but while they were cooling and we were out of the classroom - they ran away!
Those sneaky gingerbread men!! They left us notes all around Westmount School. It was quite an exciting time hunting everywhere for them. We met a lot of people who work at the school and many of the bigger children.
Just when we had given up hope...
We had fun decorating them but the best part was when we got to eat them!!
We've had a great start-up to our kindergarten year! We've enjoyed meeting all our new friends and we are getting good at remembering each others' names. We have a fantastic group of friends!!
Meet Our Kindergarten Crew!
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars...
We made hand prints on the first day of school:
We introduced ourselves to each other and then afterwards we drew pictures of ourselves to put up in the room. Before the children drew themselves they helped me draw a picture of myself. We talked about all the things that I would need...head, arms, body, hair, eyes, etc. Then, off to the tables for everyone to do their own!
Working hard at our pictures and printing our names:

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!
