As you know and have seen on the blog, a lot of our centers and activities have been hands on and require a lot of different materials. We are looking for donations to continue doing Makerspace (it means just what it sounds like, a space for students to design, create, make and build things) and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math projects in our classroom. The items may include:
- popsicle sticks (or the fatter tongue depressors)
- paper plates (any size)
- plastic cups (any size)
- pipe cleaners
- masking or duct tape
- liquid elmer's glue
Or any other supplies you may have or can think of! This will be an ongoing collection for the rest of the year (it does not have to be brought in right away!) and can be supplies you already have at home. As always, thanks for your help!
What a week in Kindergarten! Not one but TWO parties!
Starting on Monday, we finished learning this round of Jolly Phonics sounds with short and long /oo/. We also journaled about our weekends and read about the Chinese New Year. We practiced making connections to how we celebrate New Years, and talked about how this is a type of tradition. We also started new centers. They included guided reading with me, reading to self, sight word practice on the iPads, listening to reading on the iPads (Dr. Suess books this week), blending and writing words (with Star Wars notebooks of course), Legos, and writing words with Jolly Phonics sounds.
