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.
Thank you for making Teacher Appreciation Week so nice! I really appreciate the kindness!
From time to time we take a “happy break” and dance our little hearts out to “Happy” by Pharell Williams. We put the video and refresh our minds and bodies.
We set a relatively small goal of earning 200 Behavin’ Ravens since we are close to the end of the school year. We met our goal today and enjoyed an extra recess in the glorious sunshiny weather! We will try to earn another 200 so we can celebrate again before the end of kindergarten(tear, sniff, sniff)
Here are some pix of the kids playing. Enjoy!
We continued our study of the brain and the growth mindset theory with a quick video clip about the parts of the brain and there functions. We learned the cerebrum is the “thinking brain” and helps us think and process what we see. We learned the cerebellum controls muscle movement as well as helping us learn new things. The medulla or brain stem controls breathing, our heart beating and digestion, things we don’t really think about that our body does.
Unfortunately, these models proved harder to put back in the box than they were to assemble. Thank goodness Ava was able to get hers back in the box properly so I had a model to finish the rest. My little puzzler.
“I kind of knew you should have a good attitude even before you teached us that.”
