Tanaka Farms Field Trip

By Mrs. Wilson

Last month, 1st Grade had an amazing field trip to Tanaka Farms. We enjoyed a tractor ride around the farm, had the chance to pet the cutest goats, got lost in a corn maze (don't worry - everyone made it out), picked fresh vegetables and took home a pumpkin picked right out of the patch!!

Visiting Author Chris Helene Bridge

November 20, 2015
By Mrs. Korshavn

There is nothing quite like a school author visit to get kids excited about reading and writing. Our kindergarteners were no exception! Last month, author Chris Helene Bridge shared her book Read to Me! with our students. The students enjoyed listening to her story and learning about what it is like to be an author. Chris Helen Bridge taught us that it is fun to read anywhere! Where do you like to read a good book?

Halloween Memories in Kindergarten

November 19, 2015
By Mrs. Kinney

The Kindergarteners loved celebrating Halloween last month! We made a KWL chart and a spider book filled with facts we have learned about spiders.  We constructed and then ate our spiders for ABC Cooking. They wiggled and jiggled and tickled--it's true!  We have read fiction and non-fiction stories about spiders and memorized some spider poems.  We are finishing our unit by making a Venn Diagram comparing arachnids and insects.

Kindergarten Apple Unit

November 18, 2015
By Mrs. Kinney

Kindergarten has been celebrating Fall with our apple unit.  Each student brought their favorite kind of apple from home.  We have examined our apples, weighed our apples, measured the circumference and painted with our apples.  We have made applesauce for ABC Cooking, brainstormed apple vocabulary words and made a book about the apple tree throughout the seasons.  We will even answer the question:  Does my apple float?
