Kindergarten & Grade 1 News

We’ve had an exciting month! The K/1 class took a trip to the Bohrson farm. The class got to milk a cow and feed a baby calf. We also made homemade ice cream! Thanks to the Bohrson family for hosting!

We have been creating a lot of art: stamp art, still-life, Easter crafts, and finger painting! Our classroom is looking beautiful!

The Grade 1s are just begin- ning their research projects on any place in the world. I am very excited to see the final results!

The Ks have been working on asking interesting questions and then figuring out how to find answers. Some questions we’ve discussed include, “How are markers made?”, “How do they make the sky?”, and “How are turtles made?” These questions have definitely lead to some interesting discussions!

In math the Ks have been working on quickly recognizing how many dots are on a card with numbers from 1 to 8. We are also starting to work with 5 and 10-frames to build numbers. The Grade 1s are finishing their unit on addition and subtraction to 18 and will be doing a unit on measurement next.

It was great to see the families at interviews!
