Wednesday: We watched a show performed by Jose-luis Orozco. He is a singer from California. Our wonderful librarian booked him for us! Thanks Mrs. Richey. Here are some clips of that performance. I was volunteered to go up and dance. YIKES! It was fun!
Computer lab every other Tuesday!
We love going to the computer lab with Mrs. Neill. She teaches the kids lots of things to do on the computer. We have been a few times now and learned how to get onto ikeepbookmarks, starfall, and tux paint.
Check us out!
Math games and songs:
The children have been working hard to learn how to create sets up to 10, comparing numbers, sorting, 2D shapes, counting to 100, and counting backwards from 20. These are all important building blocks for mastery in math at the end of kindergarten.
Here are some songs that the kids enjoy singing!
Science: 5 senses and properties of materials (matter)
Here is a song that we have learned and will continue to learn throughout the year.
We explored each sense.
For sight: We went around the school looking at different things.
For smell: We smelled different things in containers such as peppermint, vanilla, orange, perfume, coffee, coco powder, etc... I also have different candle scents that the children can smell as well as smelly markers.
For touch: We traced our hands and talked about different textures that we can feel. We got to feel different types of textures such as soft, hard, bumpy, and smooth. We glued different things in our science journal as we felt each texture.
For taste: We tasted something sweet (candy corn), salty (pretzel), sour (pickle), and bitter (extra dark chocolate). Then we graphed what we liked/didn't like.
For hearing: We listened different sounds in containers and guessed what sound it belonged to. Then we played with musical instruments.
Thanks for checking us out! Until next time...have a great week!
