50th Day of School
IF your child would like to dress up, we'd love it! All Kindergarten teachers will be dressed from that era and we would love our friends to join us! Think the movie Grease for some inspiration... get creative and use things around the house!
This week and last...
We loved learning about all things bat this week, it's where we've tied in our Reading, Writing, and Math. We've been graphing about what bats eat, whether we think they're creepy or cute. We've been writing and reading about bats, deciphering between fictional bat books and non-fiction. We've loved learning about the smallest bat (just the size of your thumb) and that some bats actually do eat/drink blood! Ask your child how though...
Last week we learned all about apples and Johnny Appleseed! We even had our 3rd grade buddies from Mrs. Cline's room come and help with our apple investigations. We also got to taste test and see which apple we liked the best. Green, yellow, or red? Most students voted for yellow! We also experimented with an apple, learning that when dropped...teeny-tiny cells explode, releasing oxygen. This causes the discoloring or bruises. This led to the discussion of what is oxygen anyways? Love all their questions and inquiring minds!
