Here is the video from our celebration in case you would like to watch it again!
What a fun last day! I loved celebrating our accomplishments and memories with the children and their families! Thank you again for a wonderful year. I have enjoyed spending my days with each child. I will miss the kids so much!
Before the program we had fun learning about shark teeth! Everyone picked a favorite to take home.
We cheered on the 5th grade students!
We had a little yoga break.
We got ready for the program!
Our program and picnic were a great success! Thank you for coming!
We had a busy 2nd to last day. We cleaned out our book boxes and seat sacks. We also did some fun crafts based on one of our favorite book characters this year, Pigeon!
We also released the butterflies who had emerged from their chrysalis over the weekend.
We had a great field day! Thank you Coach C., Ms. Nancy, and all the parent volunteers and non classroom teachers that made it possible! Here are a few pictures of the fun!
After we tie dyed our shirts, the kids had popsicles with Mrs. Concannon while Mrs. Concannon’s class tie dyed their shirts. I did not get any pix of tie dying but Mrs. Concannon got a few of the kids enjoying their treat!
We have been making portfolios and memory books this week to reflect on all we have learned and all the fun we had. We also have been watching videos from our earlier adventures this year. Here is a round up of some of the videos we made throughout the school year for your viewing pleasure!
As our kindergarten year comes to it’s end as all good things do, we are taking a little time to reflect on our year, what we learned, friends we made and those who helped us. We took some time this afternoon to make special thank you note to an adult at school who helped us this year like a specials teacher, classroom aides, custodians, and principals. The kids had fun making beautiful notes and then delivering them to the adult of choice!
Here is a video summing up our service learning project. Thank you to everyone for all their help and support to make this project possible! And thank you to the kindergarten students who gave up some recess time to help me record the video and audio clips!
We continued exploring pushes and pulls with a variety of stations. The kids got a lot of hands on experience in how forces work. We applied all we learned about pushed and pulls to design a way to move a pile of rocks up a ramp to clear space for a new swing set. The kids used boxes, tape, string and paper to move wooden blocks (our pretend rocks).
We are having so much fun exploring force and motion with Mrs. Fitch. So far we have learned about how pushes and pulls can move objects, gravity, and friction. We spent lots of time exploring, predicting, and discussing our discoveries with friends and as a class.
