Kindergarten News for May 7 to 11.
This week we did some exciting learning in kindergarten. We did bee research. We learned that bees pollinate flowers but only flowers that have a centre surrounding the petals. We learned that the female bees do all the work and the male bees are basically lazy. Male bees have no stingers and they die in the winter. Female bees can live for up to five years. They are dormant in the winter. The queen bee does lots of work including incubating the eggs and making sure the eggs are kept warm. We did bee math this week too. The students loved sharing how many stingers, legs, antennae’s, and wings 1 bee, 2 bees, or 3 bees have.
We had a Me to We assembly today. The teachers’ had a competition with the students on speed stacking. We had popcorn and watched a movie about the earthquake in Haiti and how we are raising money to support this cause.
We made a special card and sent home our plants. We hope all the mom’s enjoy their pants and will plant them in a garden even the Southwood Community Garden if you do not have a garden at home.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s. Enjoy the weekend. Hope you all treated like royalty.
