This May we had the amazing opportunity to visit the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian. The exhibits were all entire room installations created out of some sort of recycled materials. This included huge life size bird nests, walls full of bug art, a giant rainbow that spans a whole room, and marbles that looked like flowing water. The exhibit was titled WONDER and inspired us all to take a closer look and really use our imaginations. It was amazing to see our students imaginations and thoughts come to life.
Our Flying Friends
To help welcome spring into Kindergarten we raised our very own butterflies!! We received our friends as teeny tiny caterpillars, and began to watch their entire transformation. We introduced writing into this experience by having our students journal about what they noticed. It is amazing to see how our tiny little caterpillars grew so fast. Our students were so observant and made very astute notes. We were so excited that we witnessed 4 out of our 5 chrysalises open to reveal the gorgeous Painted Lady Butterflies. Our 5th friend was a little shy and came out overnight. Lastly, we had a lovely Freedom Party for our friends into the environment. We made wishes for the butterflies and let those carry them into nature.
Our Bodies and Brains Grow Together
Everyday we use GoNoodle to help enhance our learning! It's a computer program that has the class join as a team to help grow a champion. This champion is here to encourage the class to do their very best!! All of these activities use movement to help us learn. There are also relaxing activities to help us refocus our bodies and minds. We are currently loving the Airtime Space Activity that helps us focus our breathing and Pop See Ko to get us up and moving!
