Objects in the Sky

We just finished up our Objects in the Sky unit for science. The students LOVED learning about the sun, moon, planets and stars. This is one of my favorite units to teach because the students get into the learning. On Tuesday, we had Star Lab come visit us. They gave us a little lesson about the planets and stars and then we got to go into the dome to view the stars and their constellations. The students enjoyed the experience and learned a lot about what is in our sky. Now it's time to take a little break from science and do some social studies. Our next big unit in Science will be plants.

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you all had a great day. We had a busy day in Kindergarten. It was our first day back from our little winter break and it was a party day! A little crazy but we survived. Bedtime will be coming early for Miss Evans tonight. We didn't do a lot of special activities today but I do want to brag about something we did accomplish. I got this activity from a unit I bought at TPT. You take the word Valentines and the students have to see how many words they can get for the letters in the word Valentines. Boy, did my students do an awesome job with this. We came up with about 20 words. There was some adult help but it was all the kids. A few of the words: seat, lines, see, and nine. I'm thinking we will need to do this activity again with a different word. Sometimes I underestimate my students on what they can do. Way to go K friends! Here are some pictures from our party. Enjoy and have a great rest of the week.
