Welcome Back Blossoms!
We are so excited to be back together at school! Also, I apologize for the delay in getting the blog out to you – I was experiencing some technical difficulties. Everything should be good to go now!
Ms. Tonya’s Lesson: Spring
Ms. Tonya led a discussion about the season of Spring this week. We reviewed the 4 seasons and then discussed the characteristics of spring. Spring brings lots of rain, but it also brings flowers! Lots of animal babies are born in the spring. Spring is a good time to begin your vegetable garden, and farmers are planting seeds as well. We took a close up look to some of the best spring flowers – tulips and daffodils! We also explored some cherry blossoms!
Ms. Sam’s Lesson: Earth Day
Ms. Sam introduced our Blossoms to Earth Day this week. We learned about different ways we can take care of our planet. We talked about ways to Reduce our impact. We explored items that can be Recycled and sorted them by the materials they are made out of. We practiced Reusing by making bird feeders out of toilet paper tubes. We hung the bird feeders outside so that we can meet the birds that live outside of our classroom window!
Our Kindergarten Lesson: Grammar Symbols & Poetry
Kindergarteners dove into Grammar Symbols this week, both in Kindergarten Lesson and the classroom. They practiced finding nouns, verbs, articles, pronouns, and adverbs within sentences. Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop continued their study of Poetry. Kindergarteners wrote acrostic poems and color poems this week!
Enrichment Spotlight: Music, Art, & Science!
Music with Ms. Lisa, Art with Ms. Varela, and Science with Mr. John all resumed this week in their new spaces!
A HUGE Happy Birthday to all of our April birthdays!!!!
We LOVE Our New Space!
Your children have had an amazing first week back to school! We love our new classroom and the extra space that it gives us. We absolutely love the view of the wildlife we see outside – horses, birds, and squirrels right outside of our classroom window this week! The field that we visit during our recess time is so big and giggles were had by all as they ran back and forth!
