One of our favorite times of the day is language work stations.  Students listen to stories on tape, work on computer learning games, write, read and work with the teacher in small groups.







We colored place mats and made Native American headbands with math patterns on them for the Thanksgiving feast. We got to sit with our Eighth grade reading buddies too.

We had a great time making butter for the feast too.

Mrs. Gentelin shook a little too hard and we had a butter mishap. Poor Hattie!


In October, the students enjoyed sorting and counting buttons.

Parents came in and helped us paint pumpkins. We loved it!!  We did such a good job too!

We also really enjoyed our pumpkin observations.  We measured and weighed, floated and drew. We used math words and our 5 senses.

We’ve been having so much fun and learning so much this year.

In September, we used our senses to explore a real coconut after reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.  Then we opened it to see what was inside.

We also tasted some sweetened coconut flakes.IMG_1531




Welcome to Kindergarten!
