Mrs. Dina's Kindergarten

Week of April 20th - 24th

Earth Day

We celebrated Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22nd. We discussed all the different ways we can help the Earth. We can recycle, pick up litter, don't litter, turn off lights when not in use, limit water in showers, and plant a garden. We read many books, made our own books, and we even recycled our own garbage. We sorted our trash into 4 groups in order to recycle. We had an aluminum bin, a glass bin, a paper bin, and a plastic bin. Your children had to put all the trash in the proper bins. We also discussed the ways that we can recycle or re-use our garbage. Please continue to discuss and encourage recycling at home. As a fun way to celebrate Earth Day, we made our very own mud pie!

Kinder - Mart

We made our very own store in kindergarten! We have been learning about coins for the past month. We have sorted coins, counted coins, and analyzed coins. To reinforce everything we have learned, we made our very own store. Every child received coins which they had to practice counting in order to realize how much money they had. With the money they had, they bought various things throughout the classroom that were for sale. We had candy, pencils, erasers, stickers, book marks, play dough and various other items were for sale. Once your children counted their money, they went shopping. Children also took turns being our cashier! It was so much fun and your children are learning so much along the way!

Lice Prevention

It's been an interesting week at school! Thank you so much for your cooperation during the past week. We have done everything possible to control the lice situation. We have thoroughly cleaned our classroom, vaccumed everything possible, and got rid of our bean bags, dress-up clothes, and dolls. Tomorrow, we we do another lice check to be sure all children are lice free. We have respected everyone's privacy and have been reassuring children that this is not dangerous just a nusense. Please be sure to keep checking your children at home on a daily basis and report any findings.
