We Are Sailing Through Kindergarten!

March 23rd, 2016

This week...

  • We had an action packed short week! On Monday, we participated in the Hop-a-thon to raise awareness and money for SIBS. We had so much fun hopping around the classroom and counting to keep track of our hops.
  • On Tuesday, we participated in our first philosophy lesson with students from Oceanside High School. We agreed and respectfully disagreed with each other as we thought deeply about different important questions, such as: The most important thing about an apple is that it is round. What a fun experience! We are excited for the high school students to visit us again for philosophy round 2!
  • On Wednesday, our reading buddies came to visit our classroom again. We LOVE reading to our Pre-K friends!
  • A big thank you to those of you who returned the book review. We hope you enjoyed our expert books as much as we did! You still have time to complete and return the book review. We would love to hear your feedback for our little authors' great work!
  • For those who celebrate... Happy Easter! Enjoy the break and remember to keep reading.
