Tie Dye Tomorrow!

Please have your child wear old clothes tomorrow! We will be making our tie dye shirts tomorrow and the dye will stain.

Cereal Graphing

Today we created bar graphs! Each child had a handful of cereal which they sorted by color. After they found out how many of each color cereal they had, the kids colored a bar graph to represent their “cereal data”.
We ended math by sharing and interpreting our graphs.

Can you write to 100?

We have been practicing writing our numbers all the way to 100! Each child writes as many numbers as they can without looking, then they can look at their 100 chart and copy numbers they need help with.

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.
