Kindergarten in Spring!!

 

Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school in February by bringing in a baggie of "100 Items," counting to 100 by 1's, tens & even 5's!!  We also put 100 stickers on a chart with ten--10's frames!!  For Social Studies, we learned many fun & interesting facts about 2 important Presidents...Washington & Lincoln.  We also enjoyed engaging Valentine Centers on Valentine's Day, that included; making heart hats, sorting heart candies & making a handmade Valentine Card for Mom & Dad. 

 

In early March, we celebrated Dr. Suess' Birthday, by reading a number of his funny books, but, we also made "Cat in the Hat," paper hats, wrote about our favorite Dr. Seuss books and made a list of some of the rhyming words he used in his books.  With Spring now upon us, we have many more wonderful activities ahead.  In March, the students will be making Leprechaun Traps that we will place around our classrooms just in case a tricky Leprechaun visits us.  We will also be writing about what makes each of us Lucky!!  We will work on learning the correct colors of the rainbow and one fun science experiment we will do is to mix food coloring with shaving cream to create the Primary & Secondary Colors.  The students will also be creating their very own rainbows. 

 

After Spring Break, the students will learn about the Life Cycle of a Chicken and we will read non-fiction books about chickens!  The students will also get an opportunity to hunt for some plastic eggs, then sort them by color and lastly, graph their eggs by color.  In Spring we also learn about the Life Cycle of a Flower and we plant our own flower seeds to watch them grown.  The students will be responsible for helping to water the plants and putting them out in the sun each day.  One of the most exciting things we learn about in Spring is the Life Cycle of Butterflies.  Each Spring our students get to watch little caterpillars grow & grow, then spin a chrysalis.  After a few weeks, our students will witness the miracle of change, when the butterflies hatch out of their chrysalises and fly around in their little net homes.  The culmination of this unit is when the students get to watch the butterflies leave their homes and fly away to look for some flowers to rest on. 

 

While we are doing all of these wonderful learning experiences, the students will continue with learning their high frequency words, simple addition, writing skills and so much more.  By the end of the school year, our kindergarten students will be gearing up for first grade.  There's a lot to do this Spring, and it's one of the most exciting times of the school year!!
