Today we finished our last service learning project for Kindergarten. All of the Kindergarten classes at Northview made May Baskets for the residents of the Augustana Emerald Crest Memory Care Unit in Burnsville. You may remember that we made place mats for them for Thanksgiving last November. We worked hard on these baskets and wrote each of the residents a note wishing them Happy May Day. We even sent them some Hershey kisses for the baskets. We hope that they enjoy these baskets and that it helps to brighten their day!
We are learning about fish in Science this week. We will focus specifically on goldfish and guppies. We are reading lots of fiction and nonfiction stories about fish.
We are even incorporating our fish theme into our new writing unit. We are learning about writing "How To" stories. The first how to story we are writing together as a group is titled "How To Set Up A Fish Tank" which is really cool because we are setting up fish tanks in our classroom for the goldfish and guppies!
This afternoon, we made paper aquariums. They turned out pretty well!
Did you know our Kindergarten plates have arrived? We were super excited about them!
