The Junior Kindergarten celebrated Dr. Seuss’s Birthday by reading several books, making green eggs and ham, and creating a craft from the Lorax!
We wrapped up our unit on the Olympics by participating in our own Olympic games. Juniors studied the countries that participated in the Olympics and created their own flags. We practiced our math skills by keeping tally charts and making comparisons using the medals earned during the Olympics.
During Project, the Juniors and Seniors worked in groups to create their own webs that displayed what they would put in a garden. After working in collaborative groups, students practiced their presentation and active listening skills while explaining their webs to other groups.
In Language Arts, Juniors began a new unit about Friendship. We read a story called Big Al, made predictions, and answered comprehension questions. We are working on blending sounds and continue to build our sight word vocabulary. In math we are exploring both 2D and 3D shapes. Juniors explored 3D shapes and used them to build, stack, and roll.
