- stay quiet in the line
- stay in the line on the grass; we don't want to get lost
- give the slip to the principal
- be quiet; the teacher might be talking to the firemen
- be safe
- no running; we might trip

- don't look behind you when we're walking; you might get lost

We've been practicing our fire drill. We have done it a couple of times by ourselves but this past week we did one with the whole school. We are getting very good at it! Here are some of the things the children said that we need to remember when we do our fire drill at school:
walk; no running
We had gingerbread men for our snack on Wednesday 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 best of all, we liked eating them!!
We met our Teacher-Librarian, Mrs. Sauer. She taught us a lot about the library and how to take care of things.
We discussed how drinks and foods don't mix well with books! Mrs. Sauer told us that we should not be reading school library books while we are eating and drinking. We don't want the books to get ruined.
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.
Mrs. Lord, our Library Assistant, is there to help us sign out our books.
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!

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!
