A Fashion Show, Self-Assessment, and Empathy

Wrapping Up Biomes in a Fashionable Way

Kindergarten “Biome Experts” were delighted to show off their knowledge of the fourIMG_5625 biomes we studied during our Biome Fashion Show. Students did an outstanding job preparing their individual biome uniforms and props to represent the rainforest, desert, polar and wetlands biomes. Kindergarteners worked to read and record an interesting fact about their biome during Learning Centers. They then wrote their biome fact in their very nicest and neatest handwriting to prepare their fact necklace for the fashion show.


Kindergarteners Prepare for Self-Assessments

Kindergarten scholars have been so very hard at work as they prepare for their self-assessment meetings next week! Kindergarteners have been learning the art of evaluating their own learning in each subject area. They have worked hard to take an honest look at how they feel about their learning and rating their feelings in each area. These brave and proud scholars are ready to share all of their hard work with you. They have become 113 days smarter and have so many ways to show you! Ask your kindergartener what they have enjoyed the most about self-assessments!


Each semester, we at TCS focus on two different Habits Of Mind that help students to be successful, not only at school but also in life. Early this trimester we focused on accuracy, the meaning and how to achieve it. Now we are discussing empathy, what it looks like and sounds like in our daily lives. Kindergarteners reflected on how they have shown empathy in the past to someone. Many students shared a time when someone showed them empathy in their life.
