Global Goal #15

Today we were inspired by a Tweet from Mr. Deyo's class.  They were creating pictures of things in nature that we need to take care.  We decided to create what is important to us in nature.

This afternoon we explored the outside with Mr. Deyo's class.  We were looking for things in nature that are shaped like dots.  We noticed that many living things in nature have patterns.  We were able to collaborate with each other to build a fort and notice special things we noticed in nature.  The shade feels good on a hot day.  Trees are important because they provide shade for us and animals.

Today we continued to celebrate Dot Day!  We enjoyed making our mark by painting, creating with play dough and making noticings of our world map.  Ms. Birdsall came to talk to us about the importance of Looking Up!  Be sure to ask your child about the story.  Ms. Birdsall was wearing a Dot T-shirt!
Dot Day is an opportunity to join other children throughout the world who want to celebrate creativity.  We all have wonderful ideas and like to share.  Dot Day celebrates all that and more!

Exploring The Monarch Caterpillar!

Today Mrs. Boutin gave us some Monarch caterpillars to explore.  We created a scientific drawing of what we observed.

  The iPads help us organize our ideas and make a plan of what we want to include in our drawings. Our whiteboard table is also great for sharing our ideas when we are thinking.
We used play dough to help us make the skyline letters t, f, and b!  T

What a wonderful day we had in Kindergarten.  We learned how to write 3 skyline letters; t, b and f.  We like using our new tool kits to help us practice.  We are also creating Author Note pages for our Okay Books.
 Later we used Skype to say hello and learn online etiquette when we use this platform to have conversations.  Please contact me if you would be willing to Skype with us!
Mr. Deyo visited Kindergarten to talk to us about what he shared with a ranger.
We enjoyed reading with our reading buddies too.
We enjoyed a great story!  We read the story and then had conversations about how the strategies and ideas in the book would be great for our block area.  We are trying to pause and take breaths when we need too.  We discovered that when we collaborate, we learn new things and have fun.
