Mrs. Cobb's Kindergarten Community

As an extension of our stories, we baked our own fresh bread. The children had to follow a sequence of recipe cards, measure ingredients, and then wait the three long hours it took for the bread to bake. The children observed the change in the batter from a liquid, mushy batter to a solid loaf of fresh bread. Braylon B. suggested that the heat in the bread machine helped with this process. At the end of the day we created a graph, "Did you like the bread." All the children placed their vote on yes!

Dear Kindergarten Parents,
We are excited to introduce our portfolio assessment tool, Fresh Grade. This is a useful tool because it will give you access to your child’s developmental progression throughout the year. We will be adding documentation of their learning to their personal portfolio as the weeks progress. You will be able to track the connections between their learning within the different curricular areas. Currently, you will be able to view reading/language standards for kindergarten. Standards in other areas of development will be coming soon. Their portfolio will remain active throughout their career as a Pike Road Patriot.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to teach your children. We have been enjoying getting to know them in this first month of school! Please do not hesitate to ask your child's Lead Learner if you have any questions. We are excited to show you all of the learning that is occurring in our classrooms.
