It has been a joy to watch the Toddler 2 students grow in independence, form wonderful friendships, and learn so much about the world around them this year.  We feel grateful to have spent the year in the company of such a lovely group of children, and we wish all of our beloved Toddler 2 families a delightful summer!

Toddler 1 - June 7, 2019

End-of-Year Picnic

The Toddler 1 class had a lovely end-of-year picnic as they joined the Toddler 2 class for snacks, bubbles, chalk and dancing on a beautiful Spring day!


Sorting

Sorting is an important Sensorial activity that helps young children to begin mathematical logic and thinking. By sorting, students must realize that objects are alike and different, as well as that they can be organized into certain groups. This type of work also helps to satisfy a child’s need to independently cultivate order in their world. The Toddler 1 students enjoyed using the land, air and water sorting work by identifying different vehicles and then determining where they belong.


End Of Year Project

The Toddler 1 students enjoyed getting their hands messy for a special end of the year project!

Toddler 2 - June 7, 2019

Releasing the Butterflies

The Toddler 2 students were full of joy when they finally released their butterflies on the playground today. After weeks of caring for them as caterpillars, waiting patiently while they were in their chrysalises and observing them fly around the butterfly habitat in the classroom, they were delighted to let them fly free on a beautiful spring morning. It was a wonderful experience for the Toddlers to observe the entire life cycle, and we wish our butterflies good luck as their journey continues!


Geometric Solids

Having explored the Geometric Solids for several weeks, many Toddler 2 students can now confidently identify everything from a cone to an ovoid. This week, they enjoyed matching these three dimensional shapes to some of their real-life counterparts. They were delighted to discover that a can of soup is shaped like a cylinder, for example, and that a familiar egg-shaker from Music class is actually an ovoid.


End-of-Year Picnic

The Toddler 2 students enjoyed snacks, games and fun with their Toddler 1 friends during their end-of-year picnic on the playground. The children played with bubbles, made chalk drawings and danced together during their fun-filled time outside. It was a lovely way to celebrate the end of a wonderful year!

Primary 1 - June 7, 2019

Lady Bugs

The Primary 1 students studied all about ladybugs. They created ladybug arts and crafts, and even more exciting: They observed the development of ladybugs in their own classroom, from larva to adult ladybug.


Me Museum

A Primary 1 friend was excited to present to her classmates some beautiful pictures of her adventures and her pet.

Primary 2 - June 7, 2019

Life cycle of a Butterfly

For the past 22 days the Primary 2 students have cared for caterpillars in their classroom. They documented growth rates and changes in the appearance of the caterpillars as well as their progress through changes in the lifecycle from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. The students look forward to releasing the adult butterflies soon!


Birthday Celebration

The Primary 2 class celebrated the birthday of a Kinder friend who turned six years old.


Picnic

To commemorate the end of the school year, the Primary 2 students enjoyed outdoor fun on the playground and brought healthy snacks to share with friends.
