Mrs. Grant's Kindergarten

April 8th....

Before spring break

We had a busy three day week before Spring Break. We started digitally creating motion books with our books buddies and will finish this week. Here are some pics!

K.W.6 With guidance and support from adults, explore a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including collaboration with peers.

We started learning about verbs and hunted for them in our books! Here are some pictures of students working with their reading partner. We wrote the verbs on a post-it and added it to our post-it wall!

K.L.5b Demonstrate understanding of frequently occurring verbs and adjectives by relating them to their opposites

What could we turn an egg into? The students were given an egg shape and turned it into something creative After sharing with the class, I snapped some pictures of some cool creations.
