Exploring our Playground & More!

The first month of school continues to be all about exploration for our Kindergarten class. 

First stop: The playground at our school! Students have been observing and drawing the different kinds of playground equipment we have and discussing what we can do on this equipment. We looked at our jungle gym, monkey bars, walked over a bridge, and practiced safety on the slides.

 We have been exploring our Five Senses in Science class. Students were able to experience their senses in hands- on centers for sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Here, students look at kaleidoscopes with their eyes and smell different scents with their noses! 

 In our choice time centers, students have been exploring ways to use blocks in the block center. Here, students decided we would build a castle together, with each student adding on one block. We worked on communicating with our friends when we play.

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Welcome to Kindergarten!!! The first two weeks of Kindergarten we have been getting to know our classmates and our school. We are reading many books about school and are learning about materials in our classroom. We have explored and sorted many materials in our writing center and math center.
 We have Language Through Music, Language Through Movement ( Gym) and Science every week. We are doing many fun activities every day and learning the routines and rules of our school. In this picture we are learning about and playing drums with Ms. Kim, our music teacher.
