Rainbow Milk- made with whole milk, drops of food coloring, and a stick with a squirt of dish soap on it! The chemical reaction causes the food coloring to attract to the stick. Hmmmm.
Olivia had fun stirring after the experiment like most kids did! Garrick's pan has quite the design!
Again, the stirring to make mucky milk is just as fun! Isn't it great to be a kid?

I guess you'll have to turn your head because I couldn't get these pictures to flip. There's a reason I'm a kindergarten teacher and not a tech. master! The boys are having fun making colorful volcano magic!
See our colorful rainbows?

Science at it's finest! These chemical reactions are so cool!

Learning in Kindergarten...
Math-This week students practiced sorting and graphing Lucky Charms cereal. They also answered questions such as more than, less than, etc. as they interpreted their data. In addition, students were hard at work solving addition and subtraction problems while using counters to show their thinking.
Reader’s Workshop- Our GATES testing took place during our Reading block this week. Students did a great job of applying all of their practice over the last several weeks to the test. Keep reading over Spring Break!
Writer’s Workshop- This week students chose their own animal to research. Students looked up their animal on PebbleGo (this site can be accessed for free through the LO homepage under the Library Media Center tab...otherwise you will not gain access.) After taking notes on their animal of choice, students began creating their own Pixie slide presentation (much like PowerPoint, but students could electronically draw their animal as well as add text boxes). I am impressed at their ability to apply their learning to real world tasks. You have amazing kids!

Bist Tip of the Week
Statements of Support
Statements that support the child let the child know we will help them change their misbehaviors. Statements of support may sound like:
“If you are willing to let us help you, you can change.”
“It’s our job to help you with your problems.”
“You don’t have to change all at once. I’m here to help you!”
Another highlight of our morning was making and flying airplanes around the room. After a study of forces of motion, kids discussed why some airplanes flew further than others. Also...question of the day...why do we pull our arm back before we throw the airplane?
