We spent a lot of time last week learning all about 2D or "plane" shapes. We learned that they are flat, have sides & corners (vertices) and can be found in many places in our real world. Check out the pictures of some of these smart kiddos creating their own pictures of 2D shape items.
We will be collecting funds for “Coins for Coats” on October 27th--next Thursday! Please bring in your spare change to donate to the Round Rock Serving Center’s mission to provide a winter coat to children in need right here in Round Rock ISD. The class with the biggest donation from each grade level will earn flashlight time in the library!
We are learning all about energy! We now know that energy is everywhere! During class, we have talked about light energy, sound energy & heat energy.
To start our unit of study about pumpkins, kindergarten students observed the outside of the pumpkins and made notes of the physical properties of their own pumpkin. Next, we cut out pumpkins opened and got busy exploring the insides!! We noticed that there is definitely a strong smell inside of a pumpkin. We also talked about the sticky pulp and the hard seeds.
Thank you so much for all your support with our Fall Fundraiser! Now we need to put all those funds to use! The PTA has lots of great programs planned for the year (e.g., Candy land, Movie Nights, Spelling Bee, Carnival, and much more!).
We would love to have you volunteer a few hours of your time to help us plan and run these events. We cannot do it without your help.
Please take a minute to fill out this survey so we can add you to our contact list. Our Committee Chairs will then forward information as the individual events get closer.
We also have a “General” volunteer spot and this will keep you updated on all the on-call volunteer needs for the year (e.g., help with picture day, flu shots, cafeteria, etc.)
Or, if it’s easier, please just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure your name is added to our list.
This week in kindergarten, we have become apple experts!!! We started the week writing down our apple schema! Throughout the week, we read books, watched videos, learned poems & songs. Now, we know that apples can come in many different colors. We also know that the properties of an apple can be very different depending on the apple. We talked about words like "bumpy(on the bottom), smooth, hard, red, green, light, yellow." We even learned what happens when you peel the skin off an apple, cut it into small pieces and then apply heat (from a crockpot!)...APPLESAUCE!!! Check out our apple pictures and voting below.
