February 1st - 5th

 

After enjoying a few days off for snow, the boys and girls got right back into the swing of getting work done!  We took advantage of the snow and used it as part of our science this week! Who doesn't love playing in the snow!  We placed snow in four small containers and labeled the containers:  freezer, refrigerator, windowsill, shelf.  The students predicted which container of snow would melt first.   After leaving the snow in the containers for about an hour, we came to the conclusion that snow melts faster the warmer it gets.  The snow melted very quickly in the container that sat on a shelf.  Also, the one that sat on the windowsill was melted as well.  The containers in the freezer and refrigerator barely changed!





Last week we used our cubes to help us with subtraction.  This week, we used our cubes to help us begin our unit on measurement!  Throughout our unit, we will begin using rulers and measure to the nearest inch!  Stay tuned for more pictures on measurement!




Things to work on!

As we move throughout the second half of the kindergarten year, it's important for our students to learn how to tie their shoes, or at least have a sense of beginning to tie.  Mrs. Mossor continues to work on shoe tying in her class and I encourage the students to work on this at home as well.

Another area for our students to master is knowing their address and a parent phone number.  Have your child learn to identify the street address and city, and either a house or cell phone number.
