Happy Pass It On!

Proud Poets
This week, students were eager for the opportunity to shine by reading their Pass It On poems for an audience. Kindergarteners arrived donning their fanciest formal wear to proudly show off all of their new poetry skills. Leading up to this special day, students spent time practicing in partnerships, groups, and in front of the class to prepare for their big stage debut. These brave scholars have mastered projecting their voice and reading in front of an audience, which is pretty big work for a Kindergartener!

Solid Shapes
Students were so ready to begin exploring solid shapes this week. Kindergarteners could not wait to share all that they know about different solid shapes and what makes them unique. We were excited to hear all of the things students were familiar with in our world that are made of spheres, pyramids, cones, cubes, and cylinders!

Layers of the Rainforest
This week, students took a deeper dive into the Amazon Rainforest. We explored further the indigenous Yanomami Tribe, from the clothing they wear, the food they eat, the ways they celebrate, to the homes they live in. Kindergarteners took an even deeper dive into the 4 layers of the rainforest: the emergent layer, the canopy, the understory, and the forest floor. Students continued reading about the different climates as well as the different creatures that live in each layer!
