Kindergarten got to hold chicks in Miss Maynard’s class. They love the cute baby chicks so much! In the last week of school, we took out some new outdoor toys to play with. Students also decorated a brand new dress for Mrs. Tyo! Cannot wait to show it off at our celebration! We did our rainforest animal presentations for JK and Ms. Maynard’s K class. Our kindergarteners are so grown up presenting their research project.
Kindergarten loves our animatronic animals! They also have started their research on their rainforest animals which includes listening to books about their animals, as well as making a rainforest habitat. These kindergarteners are looking more like first graders every day!
This week, we started our rainforest research project by making out animals out of clay. We also had a STEM challenge where students had to build a bridge with 4 cups, 4 popsicle sticks and it had to hold 20 bears. Kindergarten is always a fun, learning experience. We also learned about birds in science lab and make nests. I cannot wait to see what we do next!
Kindergarten went to visit pre-k to see the cute chicks that hatched. They thought the chicks were “soooo cute”. We ended the week with a fun lesson on forces and motion. We experimented with a marshmallow popper to understand how our force can change the outcome of how far the marshmallow flies. We finished the lesson with a marshmallow fight with second grade. We had a blast!
Monday was a super fun day! We got to listen to First grade talk about their Force and Motion lessons and then we all had a marshmallow fight!
We finished our Wonderlab science rotation this week! Students love being able to do science on their own and to experiment! They already cannot wait until the next science experiment!
This week we started using the Wonderlab again to make Witches Brew! Students loved how it made a bubbly explosion. They love being able to learn without a teacher and be in control of the science experiments. Only a few students had a chance to use the Lab this week but the remaining students will get a turn next week.
This week we had fun dressing up to celebrate Dr Seuss. We also did a rainbow science experiment.
This week we celebrated our 100 day of being in Kindergarten! We had a snack, we found 100 kisses, we took 100 licks of a lollipop to see if we could get to the middle and we examined what 100 items looked like! We also had a science experiment Thursday on bees and how beens pollinate flowers using cheetos! We also made edible vampire blood and had science lab where we learned about sink and float. It was such a fun science experiment day on Thursday!
Valentines party, cookie decorating and volcanic slime that erupts! We had a good week is an understatement!
This week we got to use our WonderLab for the first time! Students got to make fake snow on their own by following picture directions. They absolutely LOVED it. I cannot wait to see their next experiment adventure in March. We examined our pennies we were tunring green and complated our recording sheet. We also did a fizzy heart experiment on Friday! The kids loved it!
This week we read Cinderella: what’s that sound? We also did a couple science experiments to see how sound waves can make rice dance and bounce around and using yard as a portal for the sound waves to our ears. We also are getting our classroom ready for our Build a Bear dramatic play that comes on Monday! Tune in next week for those pictures!
Welcome back! This week we started January with some amazing new toys and centers. In these photos you can see students getting creative with our Makers Station, you will see our amazing new trays we use for wholw group at circle time, and you will see our Fun Friday science experiment. We also had a lot of fun playing in the snow. It was so slippery. For our Fun Friday experiment, we got to use activator pods and learned about activating the pod using water. Inside were our amazing new Beaker Creature toys! These new toys will be in our classroom for us to play with and throughout the year we will do science experiments with them. The kids had so much fun! Here are our pictures and a video! 30BFCBEF-CE19-4B99-8FE3-0A6EC4540C24
