What a great way to start spring break!

We had ice cream and our own maple syrup today with our 5th grade buddies.  Afterwards we had some fun together on the playground.

March fun

So much has been going on in kindergarten over the last month.  We began March by celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday.  We came to school dressed as our favorite characters, welcomed a guest reader, and had a community read-along in the gym.

In Writing Workshop we have been writing persuasive pieces.  These were taken on the first day of this new unit.  I hope you're enjoying seeing some work shared with you on Seesaw.  My goal is to have a weekly writing post from kids to you so you can see how writing changes and develops.

Mr. Hall and our 5th grade buddies have tapped a few trees.  Mr. Hall asked some of our kids to help him collect sap one cold morning.

Here is the sap the kids brought in.   The 5th graders will be hard at work boiling sap this week and on Friday the whole school will get to enjoy a yummy maple syrup treat.  

Here we are trying a bit of the frozen sap.  Many of us were surprised to find out that it tasted just like ice.

We love having our Woofs and Books dog friends listen to us read.  This has been such a high point of Wednesday afternoons in March.

Winter Kids Winter Games

We had such a wonderful week focusing on physical activity and nutrition.  Thank you, families, for all your support with logging activity minutes and sharing your family's healthy eating activities.  Our class was very excited everyday and our class participation rate was outstanding. 

A number of our students dressed up for famous learner day. 

On Friday we had our winter carnival.  It was a day filled with fun, both inside and outside.  We started the day with Ms. Arno, Mrs. Hart, Mrs. Woodward, Mrs. S., and Mrs. K.

We made rings in Olympic colors.

We made Olympic medals.

It was a gorgeous day outside and Mrs. M. helped us do some snow painting.

We made a healthy snowman snack.

Then we trudged up to the top field and had some great "luge" runs.

We danced and used exercise dice with Ms. Small.

We finished the day with a whole school assembly, cheering each other on, and celebrating our week of fun!
