When you become an expert, you can teach someone how to do the task. Working in small groups, Kinders are working on an informational poster to teach: How to get dressed for winter recess, step by step!
After the early snow storm that gave us a sheet of ice on the playground, the Kinders got creative and made their own ice puzzle. I love how intense they worked to make the pieces fit and match into the space.
Excitement filled the classroom all morning while we waited for recess to arrive on our schedule! Also, we went outside a few minutes early, just because we couldn't wait any longer.
Please join us at 11am on Friday November 15th for a family lunch, Thanksgiving style. $5 per person for visitors
Mark Breen, guest teacher from the Fairbanks Museum, visited Kindergarten today to teach on the topic of Weather Predictions. Maybe we have some future meteorologist among our group, like Gary Sadowsky on WCAX. What a fun job that would be!
You saw the designs in an earlier post. Now you have the evidence that the Kinders put their designs into action. After our study of the letter and sound of O, the Kinders made odd animal sock puppets. We were honored and cheered on by our peers and Big Pals through out the school, as well as community members who came to our parade. Some even stayed to have lunch with us. Having an event in which the youngest learners at Danville School are the ones being honored is so very heart warming.
Question: How can you make this sock into an odd animal?
Step 1: Research
Step 2: Design, make a plan
Watch for a further post about engineering!
The Danville School encourages partnerships and positive relationships among all of our students. Our Kinders are the Little Pals and the 7th graders are the Big Pals. Today was our fist meeting. The Big Pals brought a variety of favorite story books to read aloud to the Kinders and then they worked together to make positive posters of encouragement for the pep rally. We are soooooo excited to have Big Pals!
