3-D Printing Project

Kindergarten students were invited to the enrichment room this morning.  Third graders from
Mrs. Ayer's class had special gifts for them.  After meeting with kindergarten students third graders
designed and built 3-D playdough tools for them.  The tools had kindergartners' names on them as well
as other symbols.   Kindergarten students were very excited to play with their new tools.  Thank you third graders and Mrs. Rankin.  What a great project!  We appreciate you including us.

How To Eat An Oreo Cookie

We have been working on our how to writing.  This morning we discussed, acted out and then really ate Oreo cookies.  Students followed that up by filling out planning sheets telling the steps for how to eat an Oreo cookie.   We are using our planning sheets to help us write books on How To Eat An Oreo Cookie.  The books will of course look like giant Oreos.  In the midst of our writing Mr. White came in for a visit.  We had him sit down and show us how he eats an Oreo cookie.  He definitely ate his cookie differently than we did.  Next time we think we should have have milk with our Oreo cookies. 
Writing was quite yummy this morning!

Dance Party

Our scholars did it again!  Each grade level had a dance party to celebrate students' positive behavior.  In the afternoon kindergarten students moved and danced to music in the gym.  They loved the disco balls and finger lights.  Students enjoyed the chance to show off their lively dance moves.

How to Make A Newspaper Hat

Today we learned how to make a newspaper hat.  Scholars watched a short video and then watched as I followed the steps and made a hat.  Next, we stated the steps and drew quick sketches.  Then, each scholar followed the steps to make their own newspaper hat.  Finally, each student wrote their own How to Make A Newspaper Hat book.

We Love Playing in Snow!

Kindergarten students had a great recess today!  The weather was wonderful and the snow was sticky.
We made snow people, dug holes, shoveled and slid down the slippery slides into piles of snow.
The perfect January recess!

February Share Calendar

Thinking ahead to next month.  I just noticed that the updated share calendar for February still had mistakes with dates.  The third time must be the charm.  I'm hoping this revised calendar is correct. 
(If dates are wrong this time just go by student names.)   Click on the link below to go to the latest

Pomanders with Fourth Grade Buddies

There was a wonderful smell coming from Ms. Senning's fourth grade classroom this morning.
The combination of citrus and cloves was traveling down the hallway.  Kindergarten students and their fourth grade buddies got together this morning to make pomanders, a clementine or orange with cloves pushed through the outside skin.  Students enjoyed creating snowman, stars, lines and swirls on
their clementines with the cloves.  They loved the smell and the opportunity to work with their fourth grade buddies.  What a fun morning!
