We had very important visitors this morning come to visit our classroom. Next year's kindergarten students were invited to come spend the morning visiting the school and the kindergarten classrooms. I was so proud of the way our students welcomed the incoming kindergarten students to our classroom. They were very excited to show them what we do in kindergarten.
We are learning so much about eagles, and it fits perfectly with our curriculum. We are doing research as a class about eagles using a note collecting tool that makes it easy for young writers to take notes on what they have learned. This report we are doing as shared writing, so we are all involved in doing the research with online and print resources.
Some of the children said they could not find the Eagle Cam, so here is the link again. Once again, just to caution you about the content, this camera is live and the operators I don't think would intervene if anything were to happen to the eagles that is part of nature. We have seen the eagles enjoying a fish dinner several times now, and the kids seem to accept it as part of nature. One child commented about one of the eagles eating something covered in blood, and another child answered; "that's nature for you." Here's the website:
As much as we are enjoying the two new eaglets and their parents, we took some time and looked at another bird. We compared the pelican with the eagle. Ask me to tell you what differences and similarities I noticed.
Don't forget, if you and your child want to, Wednesday we will be dressing up as favorite book characters. Please bring a book your character is in to share with the class.
Today your child is bringing a bookmark home that is complimentary admission to a Frederick Keys game. All you and your child have to do to redeem the bookmark is follow the directions on the white sheet that is also in your child's folder. Basically the kids just read three books and the parent signs it. But read the flyer for more information about when the game is and directions to the stadium. The children were very concerned that you do not know where the stadium is and wanted me to give you directions!
Have a nice evening!
