The last 2 weeks we have been busy adding STEM activities within our math and science lessons. Last week we went to the STEM Lab and learned how to program Beebots to move towards the 2D shapes.
Synergizing to get the robot to the correct shape.
This week we read a variety of Nursery Rhymes. The students were able to work in partners to build a wall for Humpty Dumpty. They were given blocks, legos or cubes. The students had to figure out a way to use the materials they were given and not let Humpty Dumpty fall off the wall.
We have had a busy 4 day school week. We went on our first field trip to Publix. We were able to learn about how the cake decorators make flowers for the cake, we sampled cheese in deli, and we were able to see meat department wrap meat to sell. We couldn’t wait to get back to school to sample the cookies!!
In math we have been working on counting to 50, subitizing numbers 0-5 and started our first word problems in our journals.
In Reader’s we read about “Molly Lou Melon”. Everyone did a great job on the comprehension quiz! The students also had fun creating their own Molly Lou Melon.
This upcoming week we will are going to work with the STEM teacher. We will be using robots to help us with shapes!!!
This week we have been focusing on the 7 Habits. As a class we have been working on Habit 6: Synergize. One way that we synergized was coloring and putting the American Flag together with Mrs. Smith’class.
Welcome to Kindergarten!
We are going to have a wonderful year!
