Olivia says we learned about the letter K. Aubree says we also learned the letter C. Abby, Declan and Stella say some words that start with the /Kk/ sound are: CAN, Cardinal, Carnival. "Candy also starts with the /Cc/ sound." Na'Layah said.
Khatia reminds everyone of great behavior by telling us that Santana got on pink. Jocelyn says we can get on pink when we do something nice. Carson adds that no one got on yellow. Aubree also reminded the class about the positive referrals that Mrs. Harrington the vice principal comes and reads to us.
Sofia said: We were learning about giraffes today too!
Guelz says we had fun writing this letter while we packed up for the end of the day.
First you see us... Now you dont!
Our marble jar party was a success. All the students had fun being in their costumes, acting like their costumes, and getting their picture taken. Earlier today we even shared show and tell style about our costumes. We added some learning by talking about what sound our costume started with. /Nn/ for Ninja! /Kk/ for Cowgirl /Ss/ for Superman! Then we even said the letter the sound went with! What a blast! I cant wait until we fill our marble jar again! The kids came up with a fun creative way to celebrate our success. Enjoy the long weekend! Please don't forget to read!
Welcome back to Miss Palmer's Kindergarten Adventure!
We had a wonderful few days back followed by a snow storm that created a spontaneous long weekend! Everyone please stay safe and warm! As 2018 enters we are reminded of the joy a fresh new year can bring. Perhaps you even created some resolutions? Below are a list of resolutions that you and your family can make to help your student(s). Some are academic and some are health habits that will keep us safe, healthy, learning, and happy in 2018! One way Miss Palmer keeps her goals are by writing them down one at a time. Chose one goal, write it down with your student, stick it on the fridge and work on
-continue reading 30 minutes per night with your child.
-playing learning games with students (January Extra Skills Packet)
-play learning games with students (online games & apps)
-practice clean healthy living. Wash and sanitize hands often, practice coughing in your elbow, reminding students to keep hands out of noses, mouths and face to stay germ free! :)
pictured above are your creative inventive students. Using marshmallows and pretzel sticks we welcomed winter by creating delicious snowmen! Some other creations included a dog, and a marshmallow over a fire.
We are thankful for your donations to our class.
Some families donate time by coming into our classes to volunteer. Others donate their time at home by doing cutting and other special projects for the class. For example, some families build blocks that students use in free time centers! Some families cut out sight word cards and put them on rings for us! Also some people have cut out centers, and paperwork that Ms. Palmer can give to students.
Some tangible donations we have received and are extremely grateful for are snack and "stuff" donations. Some families have donated beads that students use when they get on pink (Have an Outstanding Day). Some families have donated expo markers and other supplies to the classroom.
Again our classroom only runs from the love of the community. Our community is the teachers, paraprofessionals, parents and students who all put out 100% each day! Our students enter school happy and leave the day happy, all due to wonderful positive at home and school support.
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to showing K-12 students the importance of computer science education. CSEdWeek is held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
This is what Ms. Davis said students are working on in Technology class on Tuesdays!
“For Computer Science Education Week, all classes are participating in Hour of Code activities, but we will be stretching it out for the entire month of December. In Kindergarten, these are the apps/websites we are using: Code Spark Academy - https://thefoos.com/hour-of-code We actually use the app and the students to track their progress. Last week completed the Donut Detective challenge. This week we will be working on the Snoopy Snow Brawl. Kodable - https://game.kodable.com. We will use this later in the month. Tynker - https://www.tynker.com/hour-of-code. “
Below are resources to help students learn about coding, computer science, and technology! I also have fun online games we wouldn’t have without computers, computer science, technology! Enjoy!
Also I have collected all these online websites on my blog so students can play appreciate the technology that goes into creating online games.
Extra! Extra! Read all about K!
