Weekly Wrap-Up -> June 17-21...counting down with 1 week to go!

There's only one week left before summer starts!  This week we left out provocations that students helped create (which were previous favourites this year!).

CLOCK PROVOCATION
Students were invited to build a clock using loose parts (rocks, Popsicle sticks).

BUILD A LETTER TREE
The story Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a class favourite!  Students loved building their own alphabet tree using loose parts.


STAMPING CVC WORDS
I got this stamping set years ago from Wintergreen Learning.  Students stamp and fill in the missing letter to spell the CVC word.

PLAY DAY
We also had Play Day this past week...here are some fun activities we set up for the K-Gr. 3 students.






STUDENT GIFTS
With the end of the year quickly approaching, Mrs. Petrone (ECE) and I have been busy prepping gifts for our students.
Our Year 2 students are leaving us and heading to Gr. 1 so we always do something special for them.  I took their photo outside on the brick wall and asked them what their favourites are.
I used PowerPoint to turn them into personalized pictures and then put them in frames.

TELLING TIME UNIT
We started our final math unit of the year, Telling Time.  This week we explored the characteristics of a clock using this giant clock I made out of a shower curtain.  

We also took a look at our day and used these cards to add the time so students could refer back to them throughout the day.

How long is 1-minute?  We explored this concept by using these 1-minute challenge cards.  We used a sand timer for 1 minute and tried various activities.

I just posted my NEW Telling Time in Kindergarten Unit on TpT if you'd like to see more.



Here are my weekly plans if you'd like to take a closer look:
