This week (as told by the Oak Room Kindergartners)...
We wrote stories bit by bit. We had a long recess. We read a book about Mrs. Wishy-Washy.
We bought apples at the farm stand. We read a book about storms. We had legos in exploration!
We went to Brooklyn Bridge Park and we went in the sprinkler, a certain kind of sprinkler. We went outside for sustainability. We had lunch in a big yard. We had a recess. Everybody got wet.
We had our May birthdays celebration! We had exploration after Reading Workshop. We did number stories. We wrote our letters.
This week in literacy (and things to do at home)
In Writing Workshop we continued our work on telling stories bit by bit. As we write, we can ask ourselves, "What exactly happened, step by step, bit by bit?" Encourage your child to do this as they write at home!
This week in math (and things to do at home)
This week in Project Time
This week in Project Time we planted seeds with Kirsten. We put several different seeds in water and the carrot seeds have sprouted! We have been focusing a lot on the weather, paying attention to the temperature each day and how it feels. This week we read a book on different types of storms: thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Some Oaks worked together on writing a book for the rest of the class about severe weather.
