Students over the course of a few weeks witnessed the growth of a caterpillar to a butterfly and wrote their final papers about them. Here, students released the full grown butterflies.
The kindergarten carnival was successful in celebrating students' year long learning. Activities included a car wash, face painting, poking the monster's nose, and other things. On behalf of kindergarten staff, we give a tremendous thank you to all volunteers that helped set up, manage the stations, and clean up. This was 100% run by our parent volunteers, and we couldn't have done it without you.
Kindergarteners had a fun time performing for parents and friends today at the annual Kinder Hoedown. We enjoyed seeing children in their western-wear. Enjoy some of the pictures of the event, as well as the year's last Roar Store visit.
Students from all of our three kindergarten classes joined together to see zoo animals at the Monterey Zoo and enjoyed some lunch and playtime at Tatum's Garden. Students did not even want the day to end! A special thanks is given to those parents that chaperoned our activities and to those that were willing to do so. With your help, the day was a great success!
Kindergarten is planning and rehearsing a hoedown with farm animal songs and dances. The Hoedown will be Wednesday, April 16 at 10:30AM. Make plans to attend and see this novel performance! Check out some pictures from today.
Today, our kindergarteners made the long journey on foot through smoldering heat to the Soledad High School farm! Students as part of research for their writing activities got to experience and examine the different types of farm life, including sheep, steer, chicken, goats, ducks, and bunnies. They enjoyed it so much and were actually relatively drained by the end of the trip.
Take a look at some of the highlights of the event.
Congratulations! Your children have made it to the 100th day of kindergarten! Our students are 100 days smarter, more mature, and more equipped to navigate our 21st century world. To celebrate school, our class participated in many activities, including counting to 100 (of course!), coloring 100 things, counting by 10s to 100, and making a crown on their head, anointing them with 100 days of smartness. Here are some pictures of the festivities.
Students this week participated in building stable structures utilizing different materials. They used their imagination to engineer and collaborate to do so, using their classmates' ideas to further develop their own projects.
