Step Afrika Workshop

On Friday, October 25 kindergarten students participated in a Flynn Theater workshop at RES.  It was an incredible experience!  Scholars were able to learn more about Step Afrika in preparation for our field trip to the Flynn Theater on November 1.  We listened to the rhythm of the music and created  solo and partner movements.  We even learned a short dance movement which we performed in unison.  A huge thank you to Darcie Rankin, our enrichment teacher, for organizing this opportunity.  Funding for the workshop came from a grant.

Pajama and Stuffed Animal Day

We were all so comfortable in our pajamas today. Scholars introduced their stuffed animals to the class and explained why they were special. Our stuffed animals got to read and do projects with us.  What a nice celebration for positive behavior. Great job scholars!

Fall Audubon Field Trip

We had a wonderful day at the Audubon.  We explored the forests and fields.
Students found many interesting signs of fall.  They especially enjoyed searching
for insects and other critters in the woods.  The giant slug and salamanders were
a big hit.  Thank you to all the parent volunteers that helped us.

Garden Adventures

On Friday we spent time with our fourth grade buddies tasting things in the school garden.
We learned how to make "weedos".  We made our wonderful treats with different lettuces, radishes, tomatoes and herbs.  We wrapped our weedos up just like a burrito.  Kindergarten students and their fourth grade buddies also tasted mint tea made with mint from the garden.  Everyone loved the tea!  A big thank you to Heidi Chapman-Renaud for helping us learn more about the garden.  We loved using our sense of taste to explore our school garden.  Science never tasted so good!
