Guest Readers from CHMS

Today seventh grade students from Camel's Hump Middle school came to our classroom to share e-books that they had written. Each seventh grader researched a country in Africa and made an ABC book that incorporated that learning. They shared their ABC books with our class today.

It was great to hear these older students reading one on one with kindergarten students.

Celebrating Writing

We celebrated the end of our information writing unit by inviting our 4th grade buddies to come to our classroom to see our  published "How to" books.... and to share some salsa and chips. The kindergarten students made some of the salsa by following the steps in a how to book  "Making Salsa".







  








                Our "How to Writing" folders were packaged  to take home and share with our families.
               




Shape Mural







Our class built a shape mural as part of our work in the math unit Build a Shape, Build a Block. Children also took photos of their individual creations before they were added to the bulletin board. They made "Can you find...?  cards for their classmates to use.

Can you find....
      -  buildings made with triangle and squares?
      -  something with 4 rectangles?
      -  a rectangle, triangle and square in one design?
