Mrs. Donovan's Kindergarten Class
A Peek Into Our Days at School
In Science, our learning has focused on how scientists use their five senses to solve mysteries. We all enjoyed figuring out what was inside classroom mystery boxes and the family mystery boxes were amazing! Thank you to everyone for supporting our science unit! In Reading, students are beginning to build a strong base of sight words for use in reading and writing. Our reading workshop lessons continue to support comprehension and conversation. Our most recent lessons have focused on how the illustrations in books, specifically the eyes, can give us insight into what characters are thinking and feeling. Finally, in math, students have completed units focused on recognizing, writing, counting and representing numbers through ten, using "5-groups", and we have begun addition and subtraction. I am so proud of the progress the students are making!
Our parents are so creative! We have loved all of our Guest Scientists and their amazing experiments! Mrs. Wolford taught us about acids and bases.
Mr. Niejadlik taught us about how blubber protects Arctic animals from the cold. We tried it out by submerging our hands in a plastic bag filled with lard. It worked!
Mr. Cooper showed us what happens when you mix yeast, dish soap and hydrogen peroxide, plus a little food coloring for flair! It was a big hit!

We dressed as Pilgrims and met with the first graders (dressed as Native Americans) and enjoyed a feast of muffins, popcorn and carrot sticks!
