Spring has Sprung!!! April 4, 2018

Handwriting

Our young writers have been hard at work, learning how to properly form their “Frog Jump Capital Letters”: F, E, D, P, B, R, N, and M.  All of these letters start the same way with a “big line” down from the top, left corner. Students know to pick up their pencil as they “Frog Jump” and bring their pencil back to the top before proceeding to the next step.  Kindergarten has been practicing following the steps to create these “Frog Jump” letters! Ask your child what they know about “Frog Jump” capitals! RIBBIT!

Trees                                     

Our scientists have been busy observing our school’s backyard trees! They have noticed that there are a wide variety of trees. Students also observed that trees have different types of bark leaves, and branches. We examined nuts, seeds, cones, flowers, and twigs! Young scientists compared deciduous trees to evergreen trees, noting that deciduous trees’ leaves turn vibrant colors in the fall while evergreen trees’ leaves stay green all year. Kindergarteners have been observing trees and illustrating their observations in our Tree Observation Journal. Ask your young scientist what they learned about trees this week!     

Building Confidence in K

This week your Kindergartener was introduced to our social and emotional topic for the third trimester, confidence. Kindergarteners shared what confidence means to them with a pinch partner and then created a t-chart discussing what confidence sounds like and looks like. We are excited to build our self-esteem and boost our confidence in Kindergarten this trimester.
