Our Christmas party was so much fun! We began the morning with Christmas themed centers: decorating a gingerbread house, using red mini cups to build a Christmas tree, making peppermint Oobleck and making the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes too big. We finished off our day with an indoor snowball fight and we even got Mrs. Giroux to join in and we had some yummy snacks and a movie!
What an exciting week we had in Kindergarten! We made magic eggs using super secret magic crystals that Fuzzle brought, we decorated ornaments and decorated Gingerbread cookies. Then our cookies RAN AWAY! Students got their December book from our Sponsor a child to read program. We are really going to miss Fuzzle our reindeer once he leaves us next week. Students also had a winter STEM challenge. They had to build a tower in a group of two using ONLY 25 peppermints, one piece of paper and 5 pipe cleaners (in a 20 minute time frame). Then we discussed what kind of problems we ran into during our STEM discussion.
It must be holiday time! Our classroom has been getting ready for the festive holiday in so many ways! We had an AMAZING Christmas concert this past week. We also did a candy cane science experiment. We read a book about the Gingerbread Man and predicted why he didn’t want to go in the water. We finished our predictions with a science experiment to see what happens to a gingerbread cookie in water. We also grew our very own candy canes! Fuzzle our reindeer has been bringing us lots of amazing gifts and surprises!
This past week in Kindergarten, we learned about magnets in science lab, we made Jk a thanksgiving Blessings snack for Kindness club (we even got to eat some afterwards) and students made books during free play to read to the class!
We had another fun week in Kindergarten! We made a Thanksgiving Blessings mix for our Kindness Club which we delivered to first grade. This activity teaches our students about being selfless and doing things for others. We also worked in teams to build a turkey hideaway for our turkeys in our STEM lesson so the turkeys wouldn’t be thanksgiving dinner. On Friday we did a mentos experiment and made elephant toothpaste.
This past week we made fizzing pumpkins. We also had a lot of fun playing with our new Dramatic play and our Switch and Go dinos. This week for Kindness Club, we colored dinosaur eggs for JK to take home with a small toy dinosaur. We also got another new book for the month of November. Students are loving their new books each month to take home.
These past two weeks have been so much fun! We decorated Halloween cookies, we did a Science Lab and learned about apple seeds, we made a house for a ghost in STEM math and we learned about Volcanoes and made Volcanic slime.
