Honeybees

Today we began to learn about honeybees.  We were able to look closely at a box-shaped wooden hive, frames, beekeeper's outfit, and smoker.  We discussed how the different objects were used in making honey.  Students also learned a lot about honeybees and their jobs.  We will learn even more about bees tomorrow.

Flynn Companion Workshop for Shh! We Have A Plan


A teacher from the Flynn came to our classroom today.  He taught us that a performer shows how he/she feels with their face and body, not just their words.  We acted like the characters in Shh! We Have A Plan.  We pretended that we were sneaking through the forest and lunging to catch the bird.  We can't wait to see the show on Wednesday, May 9 at the Flynn.

Fun with our Fourth Grade Buddies

We read poetry books and played games with our fourth grade buddies this morning.
It was great to get together.  We enjoyed spending time with them.  Ms. Senning, our fourth grade buddy teacher, is out for the rest of the year (and next year).  She is having a baby and we are very excited for her.  Congratulations Ms. Senning!

Animal Research


Kindergartners have been researching animals in Vermont.  Students worked in small groups to research their animals.  They have watched short videos and read books to discover information about their animals.  Students took notes about the animal's home, food, and how the animal changes the environment around them.  Kindergarten scientists were engaged in their research and discovered interesting facts to share.  Please watch our video to see how each student presented their research using technology and art.  They did a great job on this project!

KIndergarten Scientists

                                   
Kindergarten students are incredible scientists.  This week we spent a few hours outside looking for signs or evidence that animals were making homes or changes to the environment near our schoolyard.  We found fur, feathers, scat, tracks, squirrel nests in trees, chewed acorns and other proof that animals were in our environment.  Check out the link to our video.
