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!

Here is the link to our video.

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.

Spring Flowers and Fourth Grade Buddies

We enjoyed spending time with our fourth grade buddies today.  We worked with our buddies to
make a variety of spring flowers.  Our buddies shared a video with us that
explained the parts of a flower and we even acted out those parts.  What a great morning!

Check out our video below to see our cooperative project.

Beach Day In Our Classroom

Today was the first day of spring.  Our class earned Beach Day for our positive and respectful
behavior.  We wore our shorts, tank tops, flip flops and sunglasses.  We even brought beach blankets and beach towels to read on, write on and even eat our snacks on.   During math we continued our work on Geometry by working in small cooperative groups to design and construct one piece of our
Beach Shape Mural.  In writing we worked on problems we might have at the beach, why they are problems and how they could be solved.  We all enjoyed our sunny Beach Day.
