A Week in the Life of Kindergarten 😊

Kindergarten students love to read books with their Reading Buddies (on the left). 

Students are enjoying Math Stations (on the right).

ELA Centres - Students are playing the game 'POP for Letters' - students choose a letter and say the letter name and letter sound. If they choose the POP card...they lose all their letters and start again 😀

We love to celebrate our birthdays in Kindergarten! We also love to help out our friends 😀

Reading Centre - Students are reading books with simple word families, for example,
'A fat cat on a mat'.
