Harvesting Potatoes

Kindergarten children were impressive potato harvesters this morning.  Their digging skills can not be matched.  They picked hundreds of potatoes.  The children were amazed at the different sizes and shapes of the potatoes.  Thank you to all our volunteers for chaperoning our first field trip.  Thank you, Farmer Charlie, for giving us the opportunity to pick vegetables that will be donated to hungry Vermonters.  (Barber Farm is a non-profit farm in Jericho that gives their organic produce to Vermonters in need.)

In the Woods

Our class loves the time we spend in the woods!  We explored the woods and made discoveries about the different trees, leaves, bark, and pine cones.  We created unique structures and designs with sticks we found in the woods.  Some students chose to work alone and some worked in small cooperative groups.  All students shared their creations.  Many of the children were building homes for insects and other forest critters.

Gingerbread Watercolor Pictures

We watercolored large gingerbread people this afternoon.  Kindergarten artists took their time and did an amazing job painting!  Each gingerbread person was unique, just like the artists themselves.

Outdoor Exploration and Learning

What a great time we had outside in the fields and woods today!  We discovered so many things.  Kindergarten scientists looked closely on the ground, in the grass, and on the flowers.  They found snails, slugs, grasshoppers, worms, beetles, and caterpillars.  One of our students pointed out jewelweed and showed everyone how to pop long pods on the plant.  There was even a discussion about some holes we found.  One idea was that the holes were made by people searching for dinosaur bones.  I'm sure that we will continue to look for clues as to what made those holes.

Kindergartners worked on number recognition, counting, and ordering numbers today.  Students were amazing mathematicians!  They were such hard workers.

Reading with New Friends

Eighth graders from Camel's Hump Middle School came to visit us today.  We retold the story of 
Mrs. Wishy-Washy and acted it out with puppets.  Then our new friends read books to us.  
We all had a wonderful time!  Thank you, Ms. Stern, for coming over with your students.
