Weekly Plans - Week 35 (May 20-24)

It's the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada and so far the weather has been beautiful. In fact, tomorrow is warming up so much I *may* just have to take a dip in the pool (hence why I'm posting this today and taking the next two days off HA!)

Last week we explored colour mixing by introducing primary and secondary colours.


We used coloured water and eye droppers to mix primary colours and see what happens! The students LOVED this!
We are continuing with our Colour Inquiry by making our own paint colours using the primary colours in a squirt bottle.

We also sang along to the Hail Mary and followed a directed drawing of Mother Mary.
You can find this lesson in my May Religion pack in my TpT store.





Here's a look at our centres this week:

Can you make a rainbow?
Wrap the colourful yarn around a stick!

Race a car down the line to the finish line!

Let's explore clocks and time!

Can you make a flower garden?

Can you use these loose parts to create a beach scene?
The translucent shells and large rainbow wooden spools are from Quality Classrooms.
I downloaded these beach/pond scenes from Rebecca @mooretoloveinkinder


At our Sensory Bin, we filled it with water and added loose parts (jewels, rocks, etc.). We left out a variety of bottles, measuring cups/spoons and funnels to explore capacity.

In our Fine Motor Small Group Mini Lesson we will be using this Nature Feel and Find set from Guide Craft (which can be purchased from Quality Classrooms).
Students reach into the bag and try and match the missing piece! I absolutely love the high quality of this product!

We are going to be finishing our Telling Time unit in math this week.
We will play a Match Me game and Bingo game in small groups! Our students love games!


You can find everything above, as well as 2-weeks of complete lesson plans, in my Telling Time in Kindergarten pack in my TpT store.

Weekly Plans - Week 34 (May 13-17)

Happy Mother's Day! I hope everyone has a lovely day celebrating all the special people in their life!
Last week we worked hard preparing our own Mother's Day books.
I just love these answers!




We also celebrated Catholic Education Week and our school put on an Art Show.
We worked with Artist Caroline to create these beautiful paintings on canvas with a clay heart on top as the theme was "LOVE".

Here's a look at our centres this week:

Can you create a bridge?



Can you form a letter using Wikki Stix?


Roll the coin die and stack the money.
We've been learning all about Canadian coins over the past few weeks!


Can you use the tweezers to pick out the insects from the dirt?


We are continuing with colour mixing at our Science and Discovery Centre.
What colours can you make?

We added the story The Napping House with felt props to our Felt Board.

Our Sensory Bin is filled with water and dandelions that the students collected to make "Dandelion Soup".

For our fine motor mini lesson this week we will have students use chopsticks to move the droplets of coloured water to the correct glass. These papers are in page protectors that have oil wiped across them so that the water slides easily.

At our Game Table, students can play "Dice War" or "Dice Challenge" as we call it.
Each student rolls their die and the person with the higher number gets a point.
Students can checkmark or tally their answers.


In religion, we will be learning about Mother Mary and doing a directed drawing of her.
You can find this in my May Religion pack in my TpT store.


We are moving on to our Telling Time unit in math for the next couple of weeks.
One of my lessons this week is called the "1 minute challenge" where we experience just how long one minute is!

We will be using these large posters to show what time we do things in school.

Students will be working in small groups building a clock.

This is a very old large clock I made out of a shower curtain.
I love how students can walk on it and move the hands to show the time.

One of my favourite nursery rhymes is Hickory Dickory Dock which we will be using to learn about "o'clock".

You can find everything above, as well as 2-weeks of complete lesson plans, in my Telling Time in Kindergarten pack in my TpT store.
