Mrs. Dina's Kindergarten

Week of March 2nd - 6th

Hello March!

I can hardly believe it's March! Spring is around the corner! Soon the weather will be warmer and we can finally play outside again! We have a lot to celebrate this month! We will have the arrival of Spring, Greek Independence Day, and 3 birthdays! March will be an exciting month for us all:)

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Your children brought their favorite Dr. Seuss books to school on Monday. We will be focusing on a different book every day. Dr. Seuss wrote over 40 children's books. We won't be able to get to them all, but we will read quite a few. We began with the most popular The Cat In The Hat.

Math

We had tons of fun learning about 3 dimensional shapes. Your children loved making their own 3D shapes using marshmallows and toothpicks. After making their shapes, the children got creative and made their own unique creations. Thank you to those who brought in objects for our 3D classroom display. We love hands-on learning!

Science

We did an awesome science experiment this week. I wanted to show your children the side effects of drinking too much soda and coffee. First, I had your children predict what they thought would happen if we placed a hard boiled egg in soda, coffee, and water overnight. We discussed and recorded our predictions. We then placed one egg in soda, one in coffee, and one in water. Most children agreed that they believed the eggs would turn brown if left in coffee and soda overnight! They were right! The eggs that were left in the coffee and soda overnight turned brown. The egg left in water still remained white. We then tried brushing the eggs to see if we can clean them. Some of the residue came off, but the eggs were still brown. I hope your children realized how important it is to limit soda from their diet. Children now realize, how important it is to brush your teeth as soon as possible after eating and drinking.

Congratulations to our Star Students
