Hello Kindergarten Families

Kindergarten has been a whirlwind of events and industrious learning!

We have been enjoying reading and discussing many of Kevin Henkes books to improve our reading and writing craft. We also enjoy comparing and contrasting the stories! We explored how he shows character emotions through pictures and words and are starting add feelings to our narrative sentences and illustrations. We also are noticing emotions in books we read independently.

We have jumped into the world of surveys through thinking of topic, asking people what they like best of three things, recording, graphing, and analyzing the results. The office staff and security guards loved being surveyed! This upcoming week we will start to to explore coins and money.

Now that it is spring, students are able to plant with Anne in our garden. They have been planting, flowers, herbs, and vegetables. We can’t wait to taste the veggies in the fall! Kids also got to create earthworm houses!

Mark your calendar for the following!
