We all enjoyed a fun week in Kindergarten/1st Grade! The class was filled with kids bubbling with excitement! A few highlights of the week include: opening Chapel, plenty of read-aloud stories, a nature walk to look for things God created on Tuesday, a search for God’s creature (collected bugs), indoor recess on Thursday, and learning centers on Thursday and Friday. Enjoy these pictures we snapped during the week!
We created pictures of ourselves on the first day of school and also illustrated how we get to school.
Music Class on the first day of school with Mrs. Cravotta!
Students were ecouraged to shape numbers with and draw numbers into their playdough during math centers.
At this math center, one student tells the other which number to look for on the stones. The stones are put into a dump truck and rolled to the partner.
Students got reacquainted with the linking cubes. We used them to count earlier in the week.
At this FAVORITE math center, kids wrote with q-tips on a bag filled with paint. The numbers and letters they wrote showed through to the table when the paint was displaced by the q-tip.
Another favorite, the teddy bear counters were sorted and counted in the loft for another math center this week.
We collected some bugs that God created!
Check out the AWESOME grasshopper God created!!
The giant grasshopper was definitely the highlight of the day!
We captured several tiny moths, crickets, and ants as well. Disclaimer: None of God’s creatures were harmed during this lesson. They were all caught and released within a half hour. 🙂
We take our math lessons seriously around here! Lots of concentration!
Practicing writing the numbers 1, 4 and 5.
Moving on to the next problem.
Check out our bugs! They are so cool! We worked in pairs to get the job done.
