Weekly Update 5/3-5/7

This week we focused on inclined planes. We talked about how they make work easier, how to make them with our bodies, and the students did an amazing job of pointing out inclined planes outside and on our playground. Ask your child if they can show you an inclined plane!

 

During small groups this week we explored a variety of simple machines from the classroom, practiced making patterns, and found buried treasure (3-D shapes) in the sand.

Our social emotional lessons this week were focused on how to use our skills in kindergarten. We talked about how to use our listening rules, how to focus attention, and use self-talk when a teacher gives a direction.
