This week we studied all about the ocean and sea life.  Everyone loved reading great books and exploring wonderful sites online to learn about the interesting lives of the creatures of the deep blue sea.  The students love to learn and they absorb information like sponges!  It's so great to see them excited about learning!

In our journals this week, students wrote about what sea creature they'd like to be.

Making fish from the "creature builders".

Playing "Go Fish!".

Fish-y measuring

We made octopuses from our handprints. 

We learned all sorts of cool facts about the seahorse, we loved making these crafts.

Coral reef puzzle

Ocean dominos

Completing subtraction problems using goldfish crackers.

A fun game of "Gone Fishing".

A science experiment of "Will it sink or float?".

We also did some fun summer themed activities.  We made bubble machines! 

Painted watermelon slices

In math this week we reviewed skills we learned throughout the year.  Here students race to answer the six subtraction sentences on their board.  They match the answers on the number card to their boards.  This was very exciting, they were thinking really fast!

Fun math games on the computer

Kindergarten is quickly (too quickly, might I add) coming to an end.  We started working on "memory books" for Awards Day.
