ROLL OF EXCELLENCE

 

My Roll of Excellence this week goes to . . .

1. Alisha, for being able to say some facts about the rainforest.

2. Mayan and Vishnu, for enjoying learning about phonics.

3. Aashi, for being able to talk about the difference between a toucan and parrot.

 

This week we have been learning about the rainforest.  The children made a parrot and a toucan.  They have been measuring the snakes.  They have been exploring the rainforest in our role play area.  We also looked at the different food from the rainforest and made a banana and chocolate chip muffin.  Next week, we will continue to learn about the rainforest.
