Grade One, here we come!

Here are some snapshots of fun over the last month of kindergarten!  Students filled our courtyard with chalk drawings, bubbles, and lots of laughter. We talked about our favorite memories, and they drew their “last kindergarten pictures”.  We had an ice-cream sundae party, and students received their kindergarten diplomas on the last day of school!

It has been an amazing year of growth. Thank you parents for your support and kindness throughout the school year. Have a safe and wonderful summer!

Look at their drawings, September vs. June!

 

My favorite memory of kindergarten…

 

Lots of fun in June, including photos from Fun in the Sun day and our Barnet Marine Park field trip!

 

 

We Are Dancers!

We have been doing some great dancing in our classroom!  Using the GoNoodle app and the BrightLink® projector in our classroom, generously donated by our PAC a few years ago, we have been including dance/movement in our daily physical activity.  Students were inspired by Mrs. Glavas/Ms. Rudolph’s class who went up to dance at our school assembly. We will be going up as well to challenge the rest of the school!  Here is a short clip of them dancing to their favorite dance song, How Long.

Cherry Blossoms

As cherry trees are bursting with pink and white blooms all over the city, the kindergarten students created their own cherry blossom paintings.  To add a fluffy texture to our paintings, we used cotton balls, held by clothespins, to paint the cherry blossoms.

First, we painted our backgrounds and trees.

Then, we used cotton balls to add the cherry blossoms.  We used darker pink colors first, and then used the lighter pinks on top. Some students chose to add white cherry blossoms as well.

Come see our hallway bulletin board!
