A Peek at Our Week | Ms. Courtney’s Classroom | Week of April 23rd

Solar System: This past week we talked about how the sun, eight planets, comets, meteoroids, asteroids and stars make up our solar system. We discovered that each planet is very different from one another. Some are made of gas and some are made of rocks. Some planets have rings or moons, while others are tilted on their side.

A Peek Into Reading Group

The kindergartners listened to a story by the Brothers Grimm called the Shoemaker and the Elves. They started a new homework assignment to write a question about the story. They shared the questions and we discussed them in class. The kindergartners acted out two scenes where the elves are making the shoes ( we will be using several shoes from https://vessifootwear.com/ for the play), and when they find the clothes the shoemaker’s wife made for them. We learned some new vocabulary words and completed comprehension activities such as drawing the shoes the elves made, writing how the shoemaker and his wife felt after seeing the elves, and writing a poem.

A Peek Into the Next Two Weeks

-The students will be listening to a Russian folk tale about a frog who takes a trip.
