Make It Monday

We were so happy to see Miss Jeong back at school today, but now Miss McKendry was away sick. We missed her!! We hope she feels better soon. Ms Newman came back to look after us in Miss McKendry's place. We are very lucky to have her.

We read "The Tiger Who Came to Tea" again with Ms Newman. This time we looked more closely at the words - we took turns finding the first word on the page and then showing everyone which direction we read the words. We talked about what happens at the beginning, middle and end of the story and some girls found those parts of the book. 

Mr Morphew talked about: Gratitude, Honesty and Persistence.

It is really important to persist with something. Persistence means to keep on going even when it is hard. Almost everything worth doing is hard sometimes.

Why are friendships hard? We are all broken. We are all messed up but we need to persist with each other. There will always be people who annoy you but you need to forgive each other like Jesus does. Jesus keeps on persisting with us. He never gives up.

We didn't have music today due to senior school photo day. However, we will see Ms Clouston soon. We have missed her!

Mrs Abfalter took some of us to the Art Area and we started creating some special gifts for Father's Day. We can't tell you too much because we want it to be a surprise.  We really enjoyed this activity and can't wait to see your faces when you see what it is! 

Shhhhh! Don't tell our dads!

Miss Jeong worked with a research group to find out more about Unicorns. We have drawn up some plans to make a home for unicorns in our classroom space.

Ms Newman practised writing numbers with correct formation with other girls. We are getting better!

The rest of us enjoyed time using out imagination on the stage, using iPads and particularly creating in the block corner. We love thinking imaginatively in Pre-Kindy!

Miss Jeong practised counting backwards with us from 15. We also played with a dice to help us recognise the dot formations. It's been fun explaining why we know the answer. It really makes us think about why numbers are the way they are!
