Welcome to Our Outdoor Classroom.

Foodie Friday is becoming a hit.  This week we made a No Bake Apple Pie in a cup.  "Cooking" is a great way to engage children in learning because they get to practice so many valuable skills.  In this short clip our lovely EA, Mary-Dale is demonstrating to the children how they will assemble their apple pies.  Mary Dale has a great way of capturing the students attention and explaining instructions to them.  We are super lucky to have her in our classroom - Welalin Mary Dale.

This week we began talking about the choices we make at school - some choices are good, these are GREEN choices and sometimes we make bad ones, which are RED choices.  To start, some GREEN choices in our classroom include listening, cleaning up, playing with my friends, using my words, quiet voice, walking feet, sharing, and throwing away my garbage.  RED choices are behaviors like not listening, spitting, running (indoors), yelling, hitting/pushing, and taking everything.  In our classroom we stress the importance of community, which is why as the educators we remind the children that we are Team K4!  We work together and support one another and by helping each other make more GREEN choices, our classroom is a fun and safe place to be.

In this video, a couple students are reviewing our GREEN and RED Choices chart.  Awesome job K4.

Way to go K4, today we finished our first full week of school!  This week we continue to settle in, learning rules, routines, and procedures, as well as practice some important skills.  Lots of fine motor skills this week, like: scissor cutting, play dough, table blocks, playing in the sandbox,...

To cap off a busy and fun first week of K4, we ended with our first Foodie Friday snack project.  Mary-Dale demonstrated how to make our school bus cookies and then we moved as a team until the last tasty piece was added.  In this fun and tasty activity, we practiced our vocabulary skills, following direction, fine motor, counting, and butter knief safety.  I wonder what we'll cook up next?

Hello Families,

Just thought I would pop in with a quick note about the upcoming school year.  I am attaching a PDF document called "About Our Classroom" to my teacher page that briefly explains a few important parts of our classroom this year.  

A couple important notes about this upcoming school year is:

  • School day will run from 8:30-2:00, Monday to Friday.  Arrival begins at 8:15 and dismissal is promptly at 2:00.
  • Outdoor classroom - beginning the last week of September we will start venturing outdoors more.  Please dress children appropriately and please, please, please, please!!! pack an extra set of clothing for your child that can be stored in the classroom as we will be going outside, rain or shine.

Families are also strongly encouraged to drop in at the school the week of August 28th to pick up and fill out the K4 registration forms.  We would like to confirm the numbers and names of students enrolling in the K4 program this school year.  If you can not come to the school for your registration form, please contact the front desk and cofirm your child's enrollment with our lovely Secretary, Lana, or our Admin, Lacey.  Please be sure to confirm the correct spelling of your child's name and their birth date.  You can also email me your information at Alisha.sweezey@nbed.nb.ca

Apologies for the bossiness, however, as I transition from summer vacation to back to school mode, I am currently in the print-cut-laminate-and-label-all-the-things zone and I would love to have everything your student will need in our classroom ready and waiting for them :)

Thank you and enjoy the sun,

Mrs. Sweezey

K4 End of the Year Video - Class of 2030

That's a wrap kiddos!  Have an amazing summer break.  Mary Dale and I, love you and will miss you lots.  Take care <3

*This will be a temporary link.  The video is too big at the moment for me to upload it directly onto my teacher page, but I am looking into making that happen.  Until then, I've put the video onto YouTube.  Enjoy.

What a great day at the Zoo.  The kids had a blast and the weather was perfect.  Thank you to all the parent volunteers that joined our class and helped wrangle the free range monkeys.
