Parent Observations and Conferences went well. We hope all of the parents enjoyed watching their children work in the classroom. We certainly enjoyed having you! Mr. Chris came in and we listened to the music of Peter and the Wolf. We also listened to songs and learned about the Beatles.
For Veterans Day our kindergarteners took a walk down to the Veteran's Ceremony. They were invited to sit among the honored Veterans and participate in the morning events. Wow! Our kindergarteners did a wonderful job listening to the speeches, singing the patriotic sons and meeting Veterans from WWII to present day. The Veterans were so impressed they asked if they would return on Memorial Day! Our Thanksgiving Feast was postponed until Dec 1st thanks to the snowstorm.

* Geography Enrichment Program - On 12/5 our kindergarten students will continue to build their map skills. They will learn about the legend of a map. A legend, which functions as a map key, shows what the symbols on a map represent. The children will use a simple map of our school property to design their own legend. During our 12/19 lesson, the kindergarteners will work once more with a map - this time with a map of all 50 of the United States. We'll work together to locate various states and then color the whole map.
