The Self-Regulated Teacher

Our personal journey towards self-regulation in Kindergarten

Library Visit – March 23-27, 2015

on March 27, 2015

We’re delighted to be back at school, with all of our Kindergarten children who have grown so tall since the holiday and who are maturing so beautifully… Grade One’s in training, that’s who they are now!  We see all the benefits of our collective hard work in our classrooms, teachers, parents and children working together, and we look forward to an exciting third term with our little people.

We also wanted to say “Hi!” (we’re waving and smiling at you!) to all the UBC Teacher Candidates who followed us on twitter (@selfregteacher) over the Spring Break.  Welcome to The Self-Regulated Teacher and our Kindergarten classrooms!

Spring is in the Air in the Kindergarten!  We’re enjoying the warm weather, playing outside without our coats at recess and knowing that Easter celebrations are around the corner.

Mrs. Kennedy, our Teacher-Librarian, kicked off Spring activities by reading, Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms, by Julia Rawlinson, to our classes this week.  This is the third Fletcher story we’ve read this year.  We love this adorable little fox!

 

 

 

The children shared what they know about Spring, and this provides us an photo 4-1excellent starting point for us to talk about the seasonal changes from Winter to Spring next week.

Before the Spring Break, we got a little head start on a gorgeous Spring art project.  We just hung them up this week.

We call our paintings “Starry Night…City at Night,” as these were inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night.”  But look at the beautiful Spring colours we used for our whirls and swirls background!

We have to credit Patty Palmer at Deep Space Sparkle, for another fabulous Kindergarten art idea!  Thank you, Patty!
