Kindergarten – Mayer & Quaas

Kindergarten Program

Kindergarteners performed songs and motions for the book Not Quite Narwhal by Jessie Sima. They did a fabulous job!

Science Fun!

Students in kindergarten learn about forces and motion. We learned about push and pull. Then we learned about ways that objects can move. We experimented to see how the wheels on the car move (slide, roll, or spin). Then we made ramps to see if we could build a ramp that will allow our car to roll the furthest distance.

100th Day Fun!

Students in Kindergarten celebrated the 100th day of school! It was a blast! Students participated in counting to 100, 100th day art, stories, and other fun!

Phonics Fun!

Kindergarten has been working hard to learn about letters and sounds. Ms. Mayer & Ms. Quaas’ class learned about the /p/ sounds with the poem “Pudding in the Pan.” We then made pudding to put in our own pans. We also found all of the /p/ sounds in our poem!
 

Kindergarten Wins A Pizza Party!

Kindergarteners won the United Way Penny Drive to win a Pizza Party!  They were so excited it is the first time kindergarten has won the Penny Drives in at least the last 13 years!!

Math in Real Life!

Kindergarten has been working on comparing amounts. We had a snack, but as we set up we realized that the amount of plates, napkins, and drink were not equal to the amount of people. We talked about less than, more than, and equal to. After we made sure everything was equal we enjoyed a snack.

Field Trip to Weston Red Barn Farm

Here are some pictures of the fun & learning we had at Weston Red Barn Farm!  We learned about different features animals have, how pumpkins grow, watched a barnyard show, toured a farm yard (and held chickens), went on a hayride, picked a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, and had a picnic lunch!  It was a wonderful time for all of our students, staff, and families!

Engineering with the 3 Little Pigs!

Students worked with their friends to create a house that could withstand all of the wolf’s huffing and puffing as he tried to blow down our houses.

Engineering with the 3 Billy Goats Gruff

Students worked in teams to build a bridge that would be strong enough for the 3 billy goats gruff to cross.  The bridge also had to be large enough for the troll to live underneath.
