When we return from vacation we will be starting Unit 3 of our math curriculum - Bikes & Bugs: Double, Add & Subtract
Sorry for the delay in posting these pictures! Last Thursday on our last day of school before break we received a note from the Gingerbread Man saying he'd run away and we needed to find him! We searched all over school, following clues until we finally found him and a treat he'd left for us :) it was a fun morning, did your student talk about it?
Did you know Mrs. Jarvis does puppet shows? She performed The Gingerbread Man today for all three kindergartens!
This afternoon our Big Buddies from Mrs. Smith's 3/4 class visited and decorated the gingerbread cookies we helped Miss Bertha bake yesterday. Our Big Buddies then read to us, taught us a pirate song and gave each student an activity book!
We also performed our gingerbread song and poem for our buddies as a warm up for the assembly! Below you can see all the kindergartners in their gingerbread headbands about to head off to the gym. Stay tuned for more gingerbread activities next week!
We have spent December reading Gingerbread Man books, has your student talked about them at all? It's been a popular unit! Ask your child which book(s) they've like best!
Today we had a special visitor, Miss Bertha from the kitchen! She helped us prepare gingerbread cookies to decorate with our big buddies before the assembly tomorrow! Check out all the pictures below, we had some very impressive bakers!
This afternoon our class participated in Hour of Code week! Our school librarian, Ms Ginalski brought in the ipad cart and explained to the kindergartners:
So here the kindergartners are using the Lightbot App:
