Kindergarten Corral: A Day of Prairie Themed Fun and Learning

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.

The cherry on top, er rather the bacon on the beans was a visit from a cowboy named Casey who came to read to us!

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!

Sight Word Bingo

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.
