In the wonderful world of kindergarten, our classroom doesn't stop at the door!
We consider our space as having an inside classroom and an outside classroom. When the weather co-operates, we spend afternoons outdoors and the boys and girls often work with partners as they discover, wonder, observe, investigate and record.
Dandelions and rocks have provided so much discussion and learning this week!
Each partnership has a JK and SK friend working together. The children are encouraged to draw pictures to go with their words.
A huge slug creates a great deal of excitement!
A teeny tiny snail finds a safe place and steady hands.
A rock is moved aside to reveal a world of living things.
Negotiating picker weeds.
Why are there so many different kinds of rocks? Where do rocks come from? How do rocks get small?
A perfect setting to re-read If You Find A Rock
