Way to go!

Congratulations to Sage this month's estimation jar winner!  She had the closest estimation to the number of carrot gummies in April's candy jar.  Keep up the good work!

HEB, here we come!

The students had a blast touring our local grocery store this week!  We visited all of the different departments and played a different game in each one.  The students' favorite game was trying to figure out which fruit or vegetable was placed in their hands behind their back without looking.    Our guide, Ms. Dolores, showed us all of the different cakes with our favorite cartoon characters that we could purchase from the bakery.  Some of the Kindergartners were even able to test their frosting skills, and won a prize or two!  

I think we gave the shoppers a little scare when Ms. Dolores pulled out several live crawfish for us to see-  I wouldn't be surprised if some of our shrieks reached the parking lot!

When we arrived back to class, we made the following video together to show off the highlights of our day:

Make your own slideshow with music at Animoto.

Hats (or crowns!) off to HEB for a great field trip!

Meeting the Worms...

Our class has been very busy learning about the needs of living things and comparing their bodies and environments.  With a special delivery of worms this week, we were able to have a more 'hands-on' experience to help us complete our research.

Check out the videos below to see some of our students meeting the worms for the first time!
