Then and Now…Wow!

This week the kids made growth portfolios! These portfolios show a small part of your child’s growth and learning this year. Please take some time to look through them with your child and reflect on all they have accomplished. The kids are remarkable!

The portfolios will be in their kindergarten memories bag which they are bringing home today. There are also a lot of other fun things in the bag your child will love showing you!

3rd Grade Buddies

We enjoyed a final activity with our 3rd grade buddies. We had popsicles on the playground and then shared the writing we have been working on. We shared a graphic novel and they shared their memory books. The kids talked about what they like pd about their partner’s writing and what they could work on to make it even better!

Hy Vee Trip!

What fun we had at Hy Vee! We got to use the club room while we waited for our turn to take the tour.

Ms. Paula and Ms. Missy took us on a tour of the different areas such as produce, pizza, the deli, the bakery, floral, and dairy. We even got to go into a big freezer in the back! We got some yummy foods to bring back to school and enjoy!

Pop Tab Celebration!

Kindergarten and first grade brought in the most pop tabs for the first grade service learning project to benefit Ronald MacDonald House! We planned to celebrate with extra recess but since it was rainy, first grade invited the kindergarten classes to play and learn together with STEM tubs! So fun!

Earth Day!

Earth day is a great day to appreciate our beautiful planet. We enjoyed a Mystery Science video about how old Earth is and how scientists learned about the age of Earth. We studied natural objects like feathers, egg shells, acorns, shells, rocks, and leaves using magnifying glasses and our senses. The kids also recorded their observations on charts. It was so fun to explore these natural treasures! We ended our activities with a story about the earth.
