Solid Shapes, Biomes, and Self-Assessment

Kindergarten Mathematicians

Kindergarten mathematicians have been busy exploring 2-D and 3-D structures during math this week. Students were thrilled to show all they know about 2-D and 3-D shapes as they used marshmallows and toothpicks to build examples of each. Kindergarteners were excited to discover how they could combine 2-D shapes to create new shapes and objects. Brave Mathematicians worked to combine 3-D shapes to create 3-D objects like houses, cubes, and triangular prisms.

Kindergarteners Prepare for Self-Assessments          

Kindergarten scholars have been so very hard at work as they prepare for their self-assessment conferences! 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 112 days smarter and have so many ways to show you! Ask your Kindergartener what they have enjoyed the most about self-assessment! 


Kindergarteners are thrilled to the gills to start discussing biomes to get ready for their next presentation, The Biome Fashion Show. This week Kindergarteners learned what a biome is, the different biomes our continent has, and lots of facts about each biome. Ask your Kindergartener what they have learned about biomes!
