Every Wednesday, Mrs. Ali visits Kindergarten to teach us a new skill.  She is an occupational therapist. Today we explored scissors.  It was really fun.  We learned about the Berry Strategy and the Rainbow Strategy.  Be sure to ask us about what the strategies are.  They both help us cut and trace straight sides to learn the names of shapes.

Williston Food Shelf



On Friday Ms. Kelly from the Williston Food Shelf visited Kindergarten.  She talked to us about the role of the food shelf and we also had an opportunity to make choices about what foods would make a healthy breakfast,  lunch and dinner.  She left us signs to use for our food drive in March.  We will be collecting food from March until mid April and then we plan on walking to the food shelf again to deliver food.
 


We are looking forward to making a difference for others in our community.  Thanks for all your support with this ongoing project.

Today we explored persuasive writing.  We discovered that when we write a persuasive piece, we are trying to convince and persuade someone to agree with our idea.  We used lots of different reading strategies to help us write and we even created our own paper doll.

Today was so exciting!  We finally had enough snow to try out our new snowshoes thanks to the Vermont NEA and our school.  We explored walking and running in snowshoes, taking care of them and also we noticed lots of animal tracks!  We are all excited to begin to explore nature with our new "shoes".
