We had a great day today! We enjoyed a morning filled with learning activities about other things on the prairie besides cowboys. We read Tomie dePaola’s retelling of the Legend of the Blue Bonnet. We watched a few video clips about prairie dogs and prairie chickens. We used the facts we learned to create our own prairie inspired subtraction number stories.
We finished our portfolios today so your child will bring them home tonight. Prepare to have your mind blown by your little learner! Enjoy!
We are creating portfolios this week to show our growth and learning as kindergarteners. The children will bring this special project home on Thursday. Please take a moment to look at your child’s portfolio with him or her and reflect together and of course celebrate his or her progress as learners!
The kids have become quite proficient at reading and writing their sight words. We will keep practicing these words until the end of the school year. Today we played sight word bingo. The kids used their neatest handwriting to make their bingo board and were quite proud of how neatly and quickly they could write the words.
This was our last week for library check out. All library books need to be returned by next Friday.
