Five Senses Festival

We have discovered so much about how our fives senses help us learn about the world around us.
Today we had a Five Senses Festival.  We explored our senses further in the Taste Cafe, Touch Bazaar, Smelly Factory, and Optical Illusion station.  Thank you parent volunteers and middle school students who helped us in our classrooms today.  Thank you to all the families that sent in food for our Taste Cafe.  Kindergarten students had a wonderful morning using their senses in so many different ways.

Today our fourth grade buddies came to our classroom to make pomanders.  Kinderbuddies and fourth grade buddies made pomanders using clementines and cloves.  These decorative and fragrant creations were part of our five senses science unit.  We used our sense of sight, sense of touch and sense of smell for this project.

Snowboarding at ECHO

A big thank you to Mr. Godfrey for arranging our snowboarding field trip to ECHO.  It was a great trip and we learned about the science of snowboarding as well as how to snowboard.  Students and adults had fun with the different indoor games and equipment that are used to teach snowboarding to young children.   We also want to thank our wonderful parent chaperones for their efforts on the trip. Now we are just waiting for snow to fall so we can snowboard outdoors.
