    Welcome to Kindergarten!

    boy with umbrellaSPRING HAS SPRUNG!  We may still have many inches of snow, but we are getting ready for Spring in Kindergarten.  We "planted" a rainbow of flowers to decorate our room. 

    We are exploring seeds in the classroom. We had fun planting our own bean seeds, and we will have even more fun watching them grow. 

    We came up with a list of things we think we know about seeds; and as we read books, see movies, and make observations of our seeds, we decide if our facts are correct.  We also talk about citing our sources so that other readers can find our information.

    We will also discuss how to take care of the earth.  We will learn about the importance of Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. 

    This month we will also learn about life Under the Sea.  We will take the time to research and write all about ocean animals. 

    We started practicing for our music show!  The kids are excited and doing a great job.  Mark your calendars for May 9, 2014 at 2:00 PM.  You will enjoy their show.

    growing patternsMost patterning experiences for kindergartners will focus on repeating patterns, but these young students can also begin to visualize and talk about growing patterns in the early grades. A growing pattern is a pattern that increases or decreases by a constant difference. Have fun trying out these patterns!
