VIP Day!!

December 20, 2018
By Amy Anselmino

We were so lucky to have 6 wonderful VIP's visit K5A! We played a yummy ice breaker game and a human bingo. Then we showed our VIP all the great learning that we do in K5-from doing sight word activities to our phonemic awareness to our Daily 4 rotations! Scholars were lucky to have the VIP's sit in and help at each station too. Owen's Dad read us a story before lunch!

Thank you VIP's for visiting us! We appreciate you!


First Week of December!

On Monday, we celebrated the beginning of Advent. We have a class Advent Calendar given to us by Ms. A's mom!

We started our next reading unit: retelling. We played a good ole favorite game: telephone to discuss how retelling is important.

Mr. Moran visited us and we talked about making healthy eating choices. He challenged us to try some different foods on our trays at lunch!

We had our 4th grade buddies visit us and we made Christmas cards. It was so much fun!

Friday morning assembly Ms. P had us throwing "snowballs" through a Christmas wreath. Owen was our representative from K5A to try!


Urban Ecology Field Trip!

Even though it was a chilly day, K5A scholars had so much fun playing at the Urban Ecology Center! Mr. Flower talked to us about animals that hibernated as we took a hike and explored the wooded area. We also experimented what would happen when we threw sticks onto the icy parts of the river.


PJ Day and Story Structure

November 20, 2018
By Amy Anselmino

Yesterday we had a lazy day--scholars were able to wear PJ's to school--so much fun! At the end of the day K5A and B watched a movie together.

Today, scholars in K5A worked in groups to demonstrate their knowledge of Story Structure to present who was in the story, what was the problem or the goal, the attempts and blocks to the main character and what was the outcome. When reading with your scholar this weekend, ask them to identify some of these elements in their story!
