Kindergarten Hoppenings

Ms. Williams' Class November 15, 2013


Over the next two weeks, we will be learning about Native Americans, Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving. The children dictated stories using picture symbols and learned that long ago these symbols were used to represent words. We will be comparing and contrasting the concepts of past and present throughout this unit.


We have been learning about different measurement tools during math time. We learned that a ruler measures length, a scale measures weight, a thermometer measures temperature and a calendar and clock measure time. Ask your child if they remember these measurement instruments and what the measure!


Mike Marshall of the Crozet Gazette visited kindergarten today. He taught the children about asking questions (who, why, where, what, when). Also he told us about how the Crozet Gazette is made. Thank you for taking the time to come and speak to us!


Today was pajama day! It was also Principal reading day. Ms. Crummie enjoyed reading to students as well as reading classroom book suggestions today. She read our class The Principal from the Black Lagoon. We also enjoyed reading to our stuffed friends!


We had a great field trip to the Crozet library today. We had a tour of the library and listen to stories. We also learned that the librarians are community helpers and why the library is an important community resource. What a wonderful addition to our community!
