Kindergarten students experience and learn math in a variety of ways. Today was "Skittle Math Day!" A very tasty way to classify by the attribute of color, practice counting skills, and compare using math vocabulary words "more," less," and "fewer." And let's be honest, they were very yummy to eat when we finished! πŸ’•β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•

Last week, our 2nd graders had a great trip to North School's STEAM Lab to collaborate with 4th grade students. First, they used MilkyWay bars to demonstrate how plates shift to make mountains. Next, students experimented with a paper mountain, markers, and eye droppers to see erosion in action. Last, 4th graders demonstrated how mountains erode and change using sand and different balls. The wooden ball represented light rain, the marble represented heavy rain, and the steel ball represented a flood. Thank you, Mrs. Hindbaugh-Marr for organizing this opportunity.

In kindergarten we learn letters, sounds, words, and reading! We learn numbers, shapes, addition, and subtraction in math. But even more important are the skills we learn when we share blocks, compliment a classmate on their picture, and learn how to communicate with others. Building with blocks, creating art, and enjoying talking with our friends is what kindergarten learning is REALLY about! πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™

This week our staff spotlight is on Ms. Emma Ward, a parapro at South and our Latch Key Director. In the summer, she enjoys dirt track races and going to her grandma's house on the lake. Ms. Ward's favorite season is the Fall because she loves the changing colors of the leaves. In her free time, Ms. Ward enjoys long walks and hanging out with friends and family.
