Today the students received a bag full of goodies for snack. After a lesson on identifying solid and flat shapes their final task was to sort their goodies and discuss their sorting rule.

Michael is working very hard on his journal. We use tools like a slant board to help us with our handwriting.
I have always had a red yellow green light behavior plan, but this year with so many empathetic and caring children I felt that it was necessary to acknowledge and recognize them for going above and beyond. The bubble gum behavior was put in place and we are seen kindergarten friends go above and beyond to do great things.
The students worked really hard to build a village out of the different shapes that we have been learning about. It was so exciting to see their creativity and enthusiasm for connecting they're learning to what they know about the world around them.

The students really enjoyed learning about sides and vertices of with toothpicks and marshmallows. I can't believe how quick they picked up the vocabulary AND continue to use it throughout the day when finding different shapes.
The past several weeks we have been learning about flat and solid shapes. We have been learning about their sides and vertices. The students were very surprised to find out that a square is a special kind of a rectangle because it has equal opposite sides. After learning about flat shapes we enjoyed a little snack!
