G5 Visit to K1
On may 8, 2018 Ms Angela’s Grade five class went on a little trip to K1. They walked there from the
grade 5 classrooms. It was a very hot day and they felt like they were inside of a volcano
First , in the classroom of K1 we sang the “open and close” song to get us ready to listen. It went like
this “open shut them, open shut them give a little clap. Open shut them open shut them put them in
your lap” that was the first verse we were opening and shutting our hands in time to the music.
After that, we read a little story called ‘who sank the boat?’ in that story there were some animals that
all lived near each other. One day, they all decided to go for a boat ride. They all got on one at a time,
though at the end the boat sank. And we were trying to figure out who sank the boat. At the end, we
realized it was ALL of them who sank the boat because there was too many people.
Next, we sang the green speckled frog song. I was about 5 green speckled frogs sitting on a log. Then,
one by one they jumped into a pool. This was all about counting down from five during our math lesson.
Finally, we were allowed to go around the classroom picking out things from one to ten and taking
photos of each number. When we had finished that, we had complete free time until we had to go
to music class.
In conclusion, I think the trip to K1 was pretty fun and helped us experience the transition from
K1 to grade 5.
