It's Easter Weekend....that means it's time to relax, rest and reflect on the meaning of Easter with family and friends...
oh, and I'll probably be working on some school stuff!
This past week I was out of my classroom for 3 of the 4 days working on EDI (Early Development Instrument).
Every 3 years all Senior Kindergarten teachers across the country participate by completing an online survey (of what feels like 1000+ questions per student). The data is used to measure developmental trends in population.
Anyone else do this?
That being said, I didn't get to see my students in action working on our Easter activities. In the next couple of weeks we will be starting our Planting unit. This unit is so much fun to teach, I can't wait!
We did start learning about 3-Dimensional shapes.
I created this fun sorting activity that I plan on using when we go back next Tuesday. I'm going to have the students sort the pictures as a large group and then leave it out at my pocket chart for centre time.

We are also having a 3-D Treasure Day next week. Each student has a job this weekend...they must find some 3-D shapes around their house and bring those items in to school. They will be explaining what kind of 3-D shape it is, describing it (i.e. it rolls) and then we will sort and graph to see what everyone brought in. Fun!
Here is the letter that I sent home.
Enjoy the long weekend, blogger-friends!
Wishing everyone a blessed Easter!
