Facts and Opinions

This week we focused on differences between facts and opinions. We learned the definition of the word opinion using a 7 step vocabulary strategy and how to make our own opinions orally using sentence frames. (For example, “My favorite animal is _________________ because _________________.” and “In my opinion ___________ is the best.” Children practiced these sentences with a partner.

In Math, we have been working on 3-D or solid shapes. We are also learning our math vocabulary through this 7 step vocabulary approach. Our words this week included “solid,” “cylinder” and “rectangular prism.” Students also used the sentence frame strategy to make sense of these words. For example, “The _____________ is a cylinder.” Please keep sending in items for our 3-D shape museum!

Next Thursday is our Eight Annual Teddy Bear Float Parade!!! This is one of my favorite things we do. I love to see all the creative floats come in! I asked for them a few days earlier, so we can do some writing about them. They are always so fun to look at and the school loves the parade. As promised, here’s a link to some past floats: http://www.wheremykindergartengrows.com/2013/03/

Have a nice weekend and see you on Thursday, April 2 at 1:30 p.m. for our Teddy Bear Float Parade!

“March”-ing In Full Color

Goodness all those drab, gray days were really starting to get me down! Now that it is March, we have put a little “spring in our step” and recently did a few art projects to embrace the change to hopefully good weather and warmer temps! Bring on the Leprechauns! And outdoor recess!

Here’s a few snapshots to show you…
