Kindergartners painted 5 pumpkins sitting on a gate after learning the number 5. This is a fun rhyme patterned after 5 monkeys sitting on the bed.
Kindergartners have learned to blend the sounds of b, a and t and write the word bat! They traced and cut out awesome bats as well.
After listening to the story by Marcus Pfister The Rainbow Fish the Kindergarteners created their own Rainbow Fish in two stages with finger paint and glitter during their I-Care time.
As part of their unit about Trees, Leaves and Seasons our Kindergarteners planted two schoolyard trees, a mandarin and kumquat. First the trees visited our classrooms where we observed and named the tree parts and took care of them for two weeks. Then we planted them outside the kindergarten classroom. We will be observing the changes the trees go through during the seasons.
At the Kindergarten Christmas Party the children were overjoyed when Santa Claus came to visit the classroom. Each child wanted to be the first to tell him what they wanted for Christmas.
