In math, we have been focusing on 2D geometry. These are some of the fun centers that students have been engaged in:
Before vacation, we engaged in a literature study of the classic tale, The Gingerbread Man. We read multiple versions, comparing and constrasting each one. We discussed characters, setting, and plot. The Gingerbread Man even wrote to us, sparking interesting ideas from students about what he could do to stay safe!
KG students went outside to explore the plants and animals around Baker School. They were naturalists. Naturalists are scientists who carefully study plants and animals, as they exist in nature. When we came back inside, the students wrote and drew in their science notebooks about what they saw outside.
Today during writing workshop, KG students learned that writers don't quit. They keep trying. Mrs. Galop couldn't finish her story about the playground, because she was stuck on how to draw herself going down the slide. Luckily, the children were able to help her out with some new ideas for drawing. They did a wonderful job labeling their pictures and adding sentences!
