Bugs!

This week we learned all about insects! Watch the video below as students ask each other questions about our favorite creepy, crawly creatures!

Spring has sprung in Kindergarten!

"Homework Heros" this week asked us to take a nature walk and share with our classmates what we discovered. Students found some very interesting things on their nature walks, we all enjoyed seeing these!


Students created their own insects on the Magic School Bus website.


Since we are hoping to see many rainbows with all the spring showers, we graphed a package of skittles and "tasted the rainbow".

Then we graphed which was our favorite skittle flavor, red was a class favorite.



One of our favorite insects we learned about this week was the ladybug. She has a very special job in gardens!



Eric Carle has written and illustrated wonderful books about insects. They are some of our favorite books we've read all year!

Of course we all love butterflies. And discovered many things about their life cycle, we were surprised that they began as a caterpillar! We all made water-colored butterflies this week.



Creating the life cycle of a butterfly


Our favorite Eric Carle book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"

We made our own hungry caterpillars! We used our imaginations and our caterpillars ate loads of food, like pizza, chips, candy and of course lots of leaves!



After learning all about St. Patrick's Day before Spring Break, all the students have been on the hunt for a four-leaf clover. Our playground is full of clover, all the three-leaf variety. But we must have some luck in our class! Tripp and Elizabeth M. found a four-leaf clover!
And so did Lexie! Good work, guys!
