Skeleton Lesson

Lizzie from the Brattleboro Food Co-Op came in to talk about our bones and skeleton.  We looked at bones from different animals, talked about our own skeleton and how to keep our bones healthy. We had a delicious snack of maple yogurt and kale!  Yummy!

Eating The Rainbow

Lizzie came to visit from the Brattleboro Food Co-op for the first of four visits to work with the Kindergartners around healthy eating.  The focus was on "eating a rainbow". Instead of looking at healthy food as part of one of the food groups, you can look at them based on their color.  She stressed the importance of eating healthy food of all colors.  They did a sorting activity with pretend food and had a delicious snack.

Keeping The Earth Healthy!

During the month of April we talked about ways to keep Earth healthy.  We learned about ways to keep the earth healthy by recycling reducing and reusing.  The students really enjoyed sharing ways that they could think of to help out around their house and at school.  Each child created an earth out of torn paper and then wrote one way they could help the Earth.  They were so thoughtful!!  We also celebrated Earth Day by cleaning up around our school.

We Love Secret Readers!

We had another really fun secret reader the other day!  He read the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.  It is such a classic story.  The Kindergarteners loved it!  Thank you so much for coming to read to us!

Secret Reader Fun!

We had a mom come into our classroom recently to read us a Pete the Cat book.  We love Pete the Cat!!  He is always so funny and such a big hit with the Kindergarteners!
