We had an awesome adventure filled trip to the Urban Ecology Center this afternoon. Scholars had a great time and burned off a lot of energy playing in nature's playground. They climbed on tree branches and discovered wild life on our nature hike, got to learn about and see lots of animals, went down a super cool slide, and learned about ice and winter in nature. They should all sleep well tonight :) 

Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed

Happy Thanksgiving K5B! This past week and a half leading up to thanksgiving K5B spent lots of time being grateful, talking about our blessings, and about thanksgiving. We wrote about what we would do if we were the turkey on Thanksgiving day! We also spent some time sharing what we were thankful for and what everyone's plans were for thanksgiving and our 5 days off of school! We read a book about a Thanksgiving play, drew turkeys with specific numbers of feathers and spelled our sight words using turkey feathers! We even hid a turkey under different shapes and had to find where it was and describe the shape that was hiding it. K5B has been hard at work. Our last activity that was thanksgiving related was right before break began on Tuesday. We cut and pasted feathers and an outline of a turkey onto paper to make our own turkeys! We wrote on each feather something we were thankful for! Enjoy your days off and I cannot wait for an exciting Christmas and advent season with K5B! I am so thankful for our Catholic East community and for each one of my K5B scholars.

 Happy Halloween!!

 

Yesterday we spent our morning rotating around the school in different groups filled with scholars from each class in the school. Scholars had the chance to participate in activities in each classroom with each teacher at Holy Rosary. In the afternoon K5A and K5B combined for some fun Halloween games including pin the stem on the pumpkin, candy corn relay races, musical chairs, and some candy/Halloween snacks to end the day. Below I have put a brief description of what went down in each classroom/at each rotation. I have also attached some photos from the fun filled day. 

 

Science: Scholars explored sensory bins with Halloween themes. 

ELA: Scholars listened to the book "Turkey Trick or Treat", talked about costumes in the book and in the room, drew pictures of their costumes. 

Movie: Watched Halloween themed movies. 

Art: Scholars made el dia de los muertos skeletons (the symbol of the day of the dead holiday. 

Math: Scholars measured how many pumpkins tall they were with paper pumpkins. They got to draw pictures of themselves next to the pumpkins and color some pumpkins. 

Music/Movement: Danced along to Just Dance and Go Noodle Halloween Songs.

Friday was our first field trip as a class and it went so well! We all had lots of fun at Green Meadows Farm. Scholars got to have many adventures with Farmer Tammy and the other Catholic East Scholars. They rode a school bus and ponies, ate a picnic lunch in a barn, went on a hay ride, picked up and touched chickens, and of course, picked pumpkins! The smiles on their faces through it all were priceless. They were very well behaved and were also super engaged. 

They loved the giant chair! K5B letting out all the energy! "Say pumpkins!"
