Belly Breathing!

This morning we watched a special YouTube video created by Sesame Street about Belly Breathing!  Belly breathing helps us take a break, refocus and change our thinking!  Our special breathing balls are fun to use too! Here is the video!

Respect Inside and Outside of Kindergarten!

At ABS this week our whole school is focusing on the idea of respect!  We are thinking of how we can be respectful inside and outside of our classroom.  Every time we are respectful we get a green buzzy!  We also learned a lot from this YouTube video too!

Tinkering With Tinker Toys!

Part of our DonnorsChoose project provided us with a variety of things to "tinker" with and create with.  We enjoy collaborating with our friends using these materials.  This is a great way we can begin to take turns, be flexible in our ideas and design things together.

A Project Based Learning Opportunity In Kindergarten!

In Kindergarten we are working on a collaborative project to help provide food to people who need food.  We are building an awareness of this problem and then we will collaborate with others inside and outside of our community to help solve the problem.  We would like to hear ideas from anyone who has one to share to help us!  Please contribute to our padlet and share with others.  Click here to read more about our project!
