This afternoon Recycle Rhonda visited Kindergarten again.  She shared some interesting facts about worms.  
We learned that they have 5 hearts, a head, tail and that they really like dark, wet and damp places.  They especially like to eat fruit and vegetables!  
Guess where some of our compost waste will be going?  We learned how to make a bed for worms too!  We will be taking turns caring for the worms in all of the Kindergarten classrooms.

Logging On/Logging Off

We visited our technology lab in our school to learn about the parts of a computer, their job and then "how to" log on and log off.  We used our special log in cards to help us. 


 We learned that:
1. When you log in it is like you are talking/telling the computer who you are. When you log off you say good-bye.  This way the computer knows you have left.
2. We use the computers in a safe, kind and responsible way.  
3. We ask friends nearby to help us if we are stuck.
4. Mrs. Scott helps us when we have a question.

This morning we were using Google to help us find photographs of trees.  We were interested in what trees look like during the Fall. We looked outside our classroom windows too to see some really colorful trees! We created our own trees.
