Kindergarten has been talking about Veterans Day. The boys and girls wanted to thank the veterans for keeping them safe and protecting their freedoms. During our study we found out that many of the boys and girls have family members that are veterans. Thank you so much for your service and devotion to our country and children. Below you will find a link to our Banneker Creates YouTube channel and the video kindergarten made to honor our veterans. Please enjoy.
We won Mr. Moss!!!! Well, we won P.E. with Mr. Moss. Kindergarten has had such a great first quarter. We tied with Mrs. Lynch's third grade class for earning the most broncos for the month of October. This is something to be so proud of, especially since the kindergartners are only in school half day. I am so pleased and proud. Keep up the good work gang!
Students practiced making predictions, observations, and forming conclusions while participating in some spooky science activities.
We cut gummy worms into long skinny pieces. Then we soaked them in water and baking soda. After several minutes we put the worms in a jar of vinegar and watched them dance.
In another activity we filled some balloons with baking soda and placed them on top of a bottle of vinegar and watched in amazement!
Thank you Mrs. Hasser for a wonderful party! It was so much fun watching those ghosts fly in the sky. Thank you to all of the parents that were able to attend. We look forward to seeing you at our sock hop on November 16th.
This week we have been studying shapes. The boys and girls practiced making shapes using Play-Doh and yarn. Students also looked at art to try to find shapes and tried to mimic the work of Pablo Picasso using shapes to help them construct a face.
On Monday, a small group of fifth graders, Mrs. Edwards, and I put on a dramatic reading of Cinderella. After the reader's theater the boys and girls found a basket of pumpkins and a note that said, "Bippity, Boppity, Boo these pumpkins are for you." Students worked in groups to measure and observe their pumpkns. Students also created models of the parts of a pumpkin.
What a great day! Today we had a visit from the Middleburg Firefighters. They showed us their uniforms and we got to walk through the fire truck.
