Who knows what a group of giraffe is called? Let us know on the class WhatsApp group!

We sure have had a ton of fun at school this week! There was so much to learn about! Wow! This Wild Animal theme is such a fun and interesting one.

We began our art piece by talking about the tallest animal – the giraffe – and all about it! What colour it is, how many legs it has, what’s on its head… we sponge painted a picture of a giraffe. We also made a paper plate lion … this was a lot of fun and we have decided to keep it for our Art Expo.

We did a lot of puzzle building this week and the Pups are really getting good at this activity.

The high light of the week must have been the tractor ride! Each class got to have a turn, where uncle Ryan put all the kiddies in a trailer and then they took a ride around the grounds just outside of the playground. Some Pups were too afraid to go but others thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They didn’t want to get out!

Thank you all for bringing in recycled materials to rebuild our art supplies. Please continue to set aside anything we can use for art. Please also bring us any toys you are throwing out. We can always find a home for them, if not with us, then with one of our charities.

Have a wonderful weekend. Please remember to do a weekly nail trim, there’s just not enough time in the day for us teachers to do nail trims. We look forward to another fun week of learning.

Next week’s theme: Land, Air and Sea Transport

A highlight of the week was the reptile show on Wednesday. The Pups couldn’t believe what they saw! Some of them were very brave and touched the reptiles being shown, while others kept their distance but were still very curious. Seeing their big eyes light up as the snakes and spiders came close was definitely something special.

What an exciting and important theme this is for all of us at EcoKids Preschool! This is what we’re all about! This is who we are! We had a wonderful and informative week, learning all about recycling and reusing instead of just throwing things away.
