Properties of Matter

We watched a discovery streaming video about matter and it properties. Then we made an anchor chart about the properties. Then we created a bubble map describing the properties of a rock. We will continue to learn more about the different properties such as mass, color, shapes, length, and texture.

Pete the Cat Hunt

We read Pete the Cat School Shoes and went on a hunt around the school to find Pete. We looked for Pete and met all the important people in the school. Then we made a map of the school to and put pictures of school personnel where they work in the school.

Daily 5 Practice

We began learning about our Daily Five Centers and practiced read to self.

First week in Kindergarten!

Welcome Back to Kindergarten
For Mrs. Wood anyway!

I am so excited to be back in Kindergarten. We had a great week! We began our reading wall and learning how to create circle maps. We have introduced letters i, a, s, n, p,and l. 

 We also read the No David books by David Shannon and learned the rules for school. 


In Science we learned about taking care of the Earth. We read Look Out For Litter and went on a hunt for Litter Treasure in our Pirate Hats. We also learned about what materials we can recycle, how we can reuse ings, and how we can reduce the amount of water and electricity. The pictures are blurry because we were moving fast.

New Adventure Again!

This will be the last post on this blog for a year as I will be looping up with my students to First Grade! I have created a new First Grade Blog. The plan is that I will move back down to Kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school year and move up with this group to First Grade the following year. You can access my First Grade blog using the below web address.

Please follow me there. I really enjoy all of your comments and questions and would love to keep getting them.
