Author Visit

Kindergarten enjoyed listening to Author and Veterinarian, Ruthanne MacPete speak about what it is like to write a book and what it takes to be a veterinarian.  They also enjoyed meeting her sweet dog.  A few lucky students even got to listen to his heartbeat with Dr. MacPete’s stethoscope.

American Symbols

Through the use of videos, books, and discussion kindergarten learned about different symbols that represent our great country.  They completed anchor charts, wrote detailed facts in their journals, and made art to represent each symbol they studied.

Creepy Carrots

Kindergarten worked on their reading comprehension skills with our shared reading of Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds.  The focus of this story was retelling using sequence words (first, next, then, & last).  After reading the story, the class worked together to retell the story with details such as character and setting.  Their ideas were written down on an anchor chart.  Each student then went back to their seat to retell the story using pictures.  After their pictures were complete they then had to retell the story to one of their teachers.

Bates Nut Farm

Kindergarten and 6th Grade enjoyed a fun filled day exploring the pumpkin patch, hay ride, corn maze, and petting zoo.  They learned about all about pumpkins in the Life of a Pumpkin class.  Best of all, we spent quality time with our BUDDIES!!!
