Gingerbread Man Loose in the School

Look who came to Kindergarten today!  The gingerbread man showed up after lunch and led us on a chase through our school.  He left clues in the rooms he visited, but in the end came back to our class to be with his Kindergarten friends!

Crafty Kindergartners

Crafting in Kindergarten has become a tradition here at BES.  Yesterday we mixed our 3 Kindergarten classes into small groups and each Kindergartner made some gifts for family and friends.  Parents came to participate and help out.  Thanks to those of you who made it! We love having guests!

Baking with Bertha!

I feel so fortunate to work in a school where all staff members are providing enriching activities to our students.  Here are some of the gingerbread men we made with Bertha our cook!
Thanks Bertha!

Exploring Ginger

Ms. Laura came in to Kindergarten to show us ginger!  We made ginger tea and ginger rice (yum), played a game of ginger memory, and taste tested ginger in 3 forms!  I love the resources in our school!

The Best Part of Me

We are leaning about what makes us special or unique.  In thinking about our differences in Kindergarten, sometimes we talk about the things we can do well, the things we are working on, and our physical characteristics.  This project focused on the parts of us we like best.  

Happy Thanksgiving
