Words Come Alive!

This morning we had a wonderful workshop with Ms. Suzanne from the Flynn Theater.  She helped us use our voices and bodies to tell stories and to show how birds move, grow and eat!  It was lots of fun pretending we were on our own stage! 
She will visit us 2 more times!

Today we enjoyed walking together!  Walking is a wonderful way to keep healthy and you can do it anywhere!  We enjoyed our new sticker, coloring book and fancy sunglasses.  It was wonderful to be outside in the warm sunshine this afternoon!

Hello Howard Wigglebottom!

Today we connected with an author using @Skypeclassroom.  We heard a new story about listening and learned a new song.  Our guest told us that our online etiquette was awesome!  That filled our buckets!
When we are online, we listen, share, use kind words and ask meaningful questions!

This morning we enjoyed a walk outside, around our school.  We made observations of the sounds we heard and then we were also able to make observations of where a bird might live.  We collaborated with our partner.  It was wonderful to use a magnifying glass to make close up observations and an iPad helped us take photos and record birds!

Creating and Designing What We Are Discovering About Birds of Prey!


This morning we were able to watch live footage of a mother Eagle taking care of her baby eaglets!  We also created scientific drawings and wrote about hawks.  We are learning so much about the special features of birds!

We created a photo page of snapshots to share!  Kindergarten is really awesome.  We have guest readers who model "how to" interact with a text and share how we can make connections.  We also experience the value of voice and reading with attention to punctuation! 
We also use Google to help us find real photographs to help us with our research.
We enjoy learning from Ms. Marissa each week too!  Today we explored different types of birds and their special features.
We enjoy our older mentors who visit each week and help us with our reading and writing! We create many different places inside our classroom when we read and write.
Kindergarten is lots of fun!
