State and National Symbols

Last week was a FUN week in Kindergarten.  We finished our Solar System unit, which was a big hit and a lot of fun to see the learning going on.  They will each be bringing home a Planet fact book.  On Tuesday, we had a great time at Como Zoo!  We only had an hour to zoom around the zoo and see all the animals.  Thank you to Charlie (Simone's dad), Pam (Conor's mom), and Emily (Noelle's mom) for being chaperone's.  We walked around the zoo with 27 kids and kept them all together.  On Wednesday, we went to the computer lab and everyone did their FAST test.  We then learned about the sun and why it rises in the east and sets in the west.  On Thursday, we had an early specialist in the gym with all the Kindergarten classrooms. Then we went back to the room and learned all about Picasso and made a Picasso portrait design.  On Friday, we had computers and library time.  Everyone made a little book about their own planet.  It was fun to see the creativity in their planets after finishing the Solar System unit.  In math, we have been working hard on math packets.

FIELD DAY:  Room 101 were ROCKSTARS at Field Day!  Thank you to the parents who were able to make it to the event and cheer them on.  Everyone in the class cheered their classmates on and everyone participated!  

This week it will be all about State and National Symbols.  It teaches the Kindergartners all about symbols and what they represent.  Be sure to ask them during the week what they have learned at school.   By the end of the week, they will be able to name at least two State and National symbols.  

BOOK BAGGIES ARE DONE!  Please get your child a library card and visit the library a lot this summer.  Everyone in room 101 loves to visit the Kenny library and find books at their reading level.  Some books that they enjoy are:
