To conclude our geography unit, we focused on North America. The students learned about factors that make up North America, including some cuisine. We ate cheeseburgers while learning more about our culture!
The students enjoyed rotating through different math centers!
The students participated in an activity rotation. Each activity involved different ways to practice their spelling words. They completed a worksheet writing their words, they placed words in alphabetical order, and they spelling the words with magnetic letters.
To kick off our unit on caring for the environment, the students went on a nature walk and collected items they found to complete an art project.
The students took turns reading out loud. We read a book about chickens and learned about the process of laying eggs during our oviparous animals unit.
We have been learning about animals the past couple of weeks. We have moved our focus to a group known as oviparous animals: animals that lay eggs. The kindergartners were each assigned an egg that contained a picture of a specific oviparous animal that they would research. The collected information on the animal at home, then created a poster in class.
The students were given a plastic egg with the assignment to find something from their house that would fit inside. But they couldn’t tell us what the item was! Instead we worked on writing three clues in class about their objects. The kindergartners read their clues to their classmates and allowed for any guesses on what their object could be. Then they shared what was inside their egg!
The kindergartners completed an activity that allowed them to separate oviparous animals from non-oviparous animals.
To conclude our unit on “animals and their needs” we hosted a pet day! The kindergartners were able to show their pets and talk about their shelter, what they eat, and what they do at home. Some students brought pictures of their pet to show their classmates as well.
In class we read The Three Little Pigs, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The kindergartners were then given stories props and put into groups. They retold the story to their classmates using their props.
