We worked a little bit with 2D shapes. We are developing the vocabulary to talk about different shapes. Circles are curved. They do not have straight sides or corners. Take a look at our first work with water colors. We looked at Wassily Kandinsky's paintings and then used water colors to make our own paintings.
Salute to America
The kids are really excited to perform songs and poems about our country and Thanksgiving on Friday, November 20th! All are welcome to come at 10:15 for the AM class and 2:15 for the PM class. We will have refreshments in the room following the show. Did you see the program invitation your child brought home?

Harvest Party Fun!
Thank you so much to our room parents who organized and executed awesome Harvest Parties for each of the kindergarten classes! The kids had so much fun!
Reading Poems and Books
We have added many new poems and books to our reading binder over the past several weeks. We are locating our "popcorn" words in all that we read. Reconstructing poems and books on the pocket chart is another way that we read in our classroom. This calls the kids to really look closely at the text as they reassemble familiar books and poems. We are making sure that we point under the words as we read. Pointing under the first letter is helpful because it ensures our eyes are right where they need to be when solving tricky parts of a text.
Metro Park Visit
We had a wonderful visit to Glacier Ridge Metro Park. Miss Chrissy helped us learn about the gifts of trees and how seeds travel from place to place. Park Ranger Sargeant took us on a nature walk on the red oak trail and we discover so many cool things! We found an old wasp nest, deer antlers, toads, spiders, leaves and nuts! It was fun observing the forest in the fall!
