Sense of Sight

We talked about how our sense of sight can help us learn about the world.  We took our Sight Observations Journal outside for a nature hunt.  The students were able to LOOK around and draw the different kinds of things their journal asked of them.  It looked therapeutic for some of them to draw things from nature.  The last page was a free page to draw one more thing that they saw.  Some chose to draw a slide, a teacher, the woodchips, our school and a rock.

Sharing our Families and Homes

Kindergarteners Drew and wrote in their social studies journals last week.  They drew pictures of their family members and labeled who each member was.  They also drew a picture of their homes (I didn't realize a few Kindergarteners have rainbow colored homes!).  Kinders were able to partner up with many friends and share about these important things in their lives.  Look at the pride on those cute faces!

The DEBUG System

Mrs. Vosper, our guidance counselor, came in to teach our Kinders about the DEBUG system.  DEBUG is a problem solving system that follows a step by step process for kids to use to stop others from "bugging" them.  It teaches kids to use some strategies to use before telling a teacher (unless someone I setting hurt).  What a great life skill to start practicing at school and home!  The kids had fun practicing the steps with partners.
Thank you Mrs. Vosper!
