A Wonderful Day of Learning: @vermontkkids123

Today we shared our Kidblog posts that we created about why we liked The Cat in The Hat by, Dr. Seuss.  
We highlighted important facts that we learned about Grace Hopper who was the 'Queen of Code" and we made so many connections as readers and writers today.

We noticed that when we write and blog we:
1. leaves spaces between words
2. use punctuation
3. sound out words
4. we write from the left to the right
5. use capital letters
6. words match our pictures

Today we learned a new song about changing the world.  We also focused on Global Goal #3 this afternoon while we were outside. We spent some time walking on a trail to the stream to watch the water. We noticed that the water is loud when it rushes fast and it is quiet when it is still. We noticed that buds on trees are starting to grow. We are curious about what happens to the ground when it becomes muddy... Will the grass grow? How are holes made?

Today in Kindergarten we explored coding with Bee-Bots and an App called; "Daisy The Dinosaur".  Coding helps us think about our learning. The children made lots of mathematical connections and noticed the patterns they were creating when we were coding.  We are learning new vocabulary also. Later we were able to create a Kidblog post about why we code.

Global Goal #15 Life On Land

Today we created illustrations that represent our feelings about #15 Global Goal: Life on Land. We really enjoy being outside in nature, exploring making connections and identifying patterns. As writers we are using details in our drawings which give meaning to our ideas.  The labels help to identify things in our drawings that are important to notice.

This morning we had a dental hygienist visit Kindergarten.  She spoke to us about the importance of eating healthy food to keep our mouths, body and teeth healthy. We practiced brushing teeth on our animal friends.  We also received our very own dental mask, gloves and tooth brushing kit!

Snowshoeing Fun!

 This morning we enjoyed snowshoeing.  We checked on our class tree and found lots of mice tracks.  Some of the children made mathematical connections with things they found in nature.  Weeds were shaped like triangles, galls looked like spheres or circles.  Some of the children noticed that animals can make both straight and curvy lines.
