Beach Buddies' Bulletin

November 5-8

Our week in K...

This week we explored monsters! We read several monster stories and made a monster graph to choose our favorite monster story. We finished our owl study and wrote about our new learning.


In other literacy learning we:

*made a color words chart

*counted the number of letters in words

*played rhyming and blending games

*visited the computer lab to explore www.abcmouse.com


Math Workshop

In Math we graphed M&M's, made shapes with pegboards, played coin recognition games, measured pumpkins, and counted by 10's with the 100's chart.


Candy Science

What happens when you put M&M's in water? How about Skittles? Ask your kindergartner! We made a "hypothesis" and asked many questions! We tested it out and wrote about our observations.


Razzle Dazzle Readers

Wow! We have had 100% of our Razzle Dazzle Reader sheets returned for the past 2 weeks. Thank you for making reading a priority at home. It shines through in your kids!
