January

Wednesdays are a favorite day for kinders.  That's the day we meet with our 5th grade buddies.  We do different activities with our buddies, building close friendships. 

Sometimes we enjoy books together. 























Sometimes we go outside on a perfect sledding day.







After learning about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. we talked about how we could spread some kindness around our world.  We read this fantastic Chickadee Award nominee book and created a beautiful mural together. 









If you're in school, check out the mural to see the ideas kids had about spreading kindness. 

We're reading lots of "just right" books everyday.  We're learning more and more words all the time.


















And here we are making our he and she crowns.






We learned a bit about evergreen trees and deciduous trees.  Guess which ones hold more snow!

Happy New Year!

Even though we had a 2 hour delay yesterday, we were still able to get into the woods for an hour and a half.  It was a balmy, beautiful 26 degrees out.  None of us were cold, everyone has gotten so good at wearing layers, warm socks, and packing their bags with extra mittens. 










Here are some of the journal entries from our morning outside.



"I was playing with friends."



"I am playing cops and robbers."  Notice this friend using the -ing ending in the word playing.



"Look at the kids play raptors."  Raptors was a very popular game this week.  This friend has great spaces between his words and a period at the end of the sentence.



"I played Paw Patrol with my friends."  This was the other popular game of the week.  Do you notice the speech bubble by the kid on the branch?  It says, "Landon, look at me."  What a great detail in her writing!
