So, this was pretty cool. We had some high-tech sharing this week. Our friend, Logan, made a cool Star Wars lego machine at home and he wanted to share it with us. Since he knew it might fall apart in his backpack on the way to school, he and his mom came up with a great idea. His mom took a photo of the creation and e-mailed it to Mrs. Kurt. At sharing time, Mrs. Kurt put the picture up on the SMART Board and Logan got to do his sharing. It was really great for us to see what Logan made and it didn't fall apart at all. Great idea...thanks, Logan (and Logan's mom).
In Gym, we have been having fun learning some volleyball skills. As you can see, the nets are set a little bit lower than they would be for a regulation match! We have been practicing hitting balloons over the nets, and we even practiced with beach balls. It has been so much fun and we are getting some good exercise!
In Music, Mrs. Treb read us the story "Hide and Snake".
In Reading Workshop, we have been talking lots about connections and making connections in our reading. Today we tried something new. We each had to choose a just right book from our classroom book baskets. Then we read our book. Next, we completed a connections worksheet that told our name, the title of the book we read and what our connection to the story was. It was our first time trying this and Mrs. Kurt said we were rock stars!
The best part was when we all finished our worksheets, we had a Book Talk. We got to share with our classmates the title of the book we read and our connections. It was really cool because we might have heard about a new book that someone else read that we want to read now!
Good stuff, Kindergartners!
