Pre-K L Snow Day!

There was excitement all around when we woke up on Monday morning to snow. We got a WeChat message from our teachers telling us to bring buckets of snow into our classroom! Whatever were our teachers planning?
First, we made snowmen on trays and used Lego cubes to measures how tall they were. Then, we placed them on the window sill so that we could have space to do some painting on snow. That was fun and messy! We mixed red and yellow paint and found out it made orange! We mixed blue and yellow paint and got green. We also mixed all the colors we had and made a rainbow! Lastly, we got to play in the snow at outside time. By the time we went inside again, some of our snowmen were only one cube high and others had melted altogether! In the end we all agreed that snow days are just the best!

States of Matter

During the last few weeks we have been busy learning about the three states of matter for science. We have conducted many different experiments to explore the properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Some of these experiments included: making and eating butter; creating our own slime; preparing some frozen juice with snow and making oobleck with cornstarch, which can be both a liquid and a solid. The experiments made this unit so much fun.
Here is a video of us with making butter.

Kindergarten students are 100 days smarter!

Kindergarteners had lots of fun celebrating the 100th day of school.

The day started off with a search for 100 chocolate kisses around the classroom.

The students then counted out their 100 collections that they brought from home and displayed them for others to see.

Then they got to participate in several 100 activities such as stacking 100 cups, stamping 100 gumballs, building with 100 Legos, linking together numbers 1-100, making a necklace with 100 oat cereals and recording their 100 licks of a lollipop by coloring in a box for each lick.

The day ended with a 100 piece snack, which the students had to count out themselves.  Everyone had a great day and lots of practice counting.  They are now ready for the next 80 days!
