Hello everyone. It has been a loooooong time since my last post. I have so many wonderful photos of your children that I’m excited to share with you. Over the last couple of months I have sent some photos along with your email updates, but I’m excited to be able to share them with everyone. I’m going to start with the most recent photos and go back in time from there. Enjoy!
What an amazing Forest Friday we had outside playing in the spring snowstorm. The snow was perfect for rolling giant snowballs, enjoying sugar on snow, and warming up by the fire with some hot cocoa.
In the morning when we created our forest plans, I challenged the kids to create a plan for keeping the snow from falling into our fire. They had to make a plan using only items that are available to us in the forest classroom. There were some very creative ideas and detailed drawings. Make sure to ask your child about their invention.
Sugar on Snow – The children were so excited when our maple syrup finally reached the right temperature for us to make perfectly delicious oooey-gooey maple sugar. They jumped up and down and cheered!
And just last week…
Reader’s Theater, Leprechaun Traps, and
Last week we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with some rainbow science experiments, rainbow crafts, leprechaun trap building with our 3/4 reading buddies, and reader’s theater scripts.
Valentine’s Day is such a fun and special holiday for kindergartners. They just love passing out valentines to one another and then taking home their special envelope filled with love. After all of the valentines were passed out one student held up his envelope and announced, “Ms. Myriah, this is the sweetest thing ever!” It truly is.
We mustache you a question?
This is the day that we celebrated being 100 days smarter!
