Preschool 1

Last week (February 27th-March 2nd) we began exploring our new Unit of Inquiry, Hey Kitty Kitty!  Each week we will be looking at a different pet and our main theme for the week was DOGS.  During this time we discussed many different things about dogs including: what do they look like; how many legs do they have; how many ears, eyes, and noses do they have; what are the things that they need in order to be happy, healthy and safe; how can we help dogs; and what do they like to eat? 
We were introduced to Miss. Ieva’s dog, Reina, and we all learned about how we should behave around dogs and how we should treat them.  We learned that Reina could be a mother one day in the future.  She also has ten nipples that she will be able to feed her puppies with!
During the week we engaged in many activities revolving around this theme including: colouring, cutting and pasting dogs; matching baby animals to their mothers; role play with dog food, cages, leads and toys; creating two and three dimensional dogs; counting and sorting; and enjoying many books, informational and narrative, regarding dogs and related topics.
The week was a great success and we are looking forward to exploring this week’s theme: CATS!
