Wednesday – we had math tiles and our letter of the week story about the letter q. Please ask your learner about the magical story of the quiet queen of dreams. After recess we had a wonderful lesson in the garden to measure and observe our potato plants. Then we had music and we ended our day with our first read through of the 2014 class play.

Thursday – we began our day with a special visit of five learners from Carol’s class. They each read us a poem that they had written during their unit of study on poetry. Then Ron came for a special visit along with Dylan, Ginger, and Hazel to thank our class for their amazing support of Mini H4AC. Then we had spanish and after recess the kinders made delicious homemade pancakes. We also began our next unit of study on learning how to write an opinion piece about a favorite book or specific topic. Our discussion on Wednesday was about stating what our favorite ice cream flavor was and why we liked it. This morning I read them two books by John Grogan and then we had a class discussion about why we would recommend his books.
