Welcome to our classroom blog. Our blog is like a journal, a never ending account and record of all the exciting adventures we experience in Kindergarten. We are an enthusiastic group of people who care about each other and the world. We hope you enjoy reading, listening and watching what we do.
Today we shared our Kidblog posts that we created about why we liked The Cat in The Hat by, Dr. Seuss. We highlighted important facts that we learned about Grace Hopper who was the 'Queen of Code" and we made so many connections as readers and writers today.
Today we learned a new song about changing the world. We also focused on Global Goal #3 this afternoon while we were outside. We spent some time walking on a trail to the stream to watch the water. We noticed that the water is loud when it rushes fast and it is quiet when it is still. We noticed that buds on trees are starting to grow. We are curious about what happens to the ground when it becomes muddy... Will the grass grow? How are holes made?
Today in Kindergarten we explored coding with Bee-Bots and an App called; "Daisy The Dinosaur". Coding helps us think about our learning. The children made lots of mathematical connections and noticed the patterns they were creating when we were coding. We are learning new vocabulary also. Later we were able to create a Kidblog post about why we code.
Today we created illustrations that represent our feelings about #15 Global Goal: Life on Land. We really enjoy being outside in nature, exploring making connections and identifying patterns. As writers we are using details in our drawings which give meaning to our ideas. The labels help to identify things in our drawings that are important to notice.
This morning we had a dental hygienist visit Kindergarten. She spoke to us about the importance of eating healthy food to keep our mouths, body and teeth healthy. We practiced brushing teeth on our animal friends. We also received our very own dental mask, gloves and tooth brushing kit!
This morning we enjoyed snowshoeing. We checked on our class tree and found lots of mice tracks. Some of the children made mathematical connections with things they found in nature. Weeds were shaped like triangles, galls looked like spheres or circles. Some of the children noticed that animals can make both straight and curvy lines.
What a wonderful afternoon we had today. We enjoyed snowshoeing and looking for animal tracks. We explored a new area outside of our classroom. We noticed that when the snow is cold it makes a sound when you step on it. Later we made winter bouquets out of natural things found in nature.
We received lots of new books today that support the Global Goals For Sustainability. The books were given to us through the generosity of others globally. The stories are all unique, come from different parts of the world and share valuable stories around the goals. We are reading and responding to the books with conversation and writing.
We sorted trash this morning. We discovered that if we put things in their right spot when we are through with them we are helping the environment and being responsible global goal keepers of the world.
