We had a busy, fun day! We had whole group Chromebook time today. The children listened to a story, played a memory game with plane and solid shapes, and used pattern blocks to solve puzzles. These games can be found in our Google Classroom and on our homework page on this website.
We talked a little more about landforms and read an amazing book called Grand Canyon, by Jason Chin. This book is a little advanced for the kinders, but I read parts to them and we discussed the illustrations. First of all, the illustrations are gorgeous! But there are also plants and animals around some of the illustrations that show where you would find them and how their adaptations help them to survive. The book takes you back to when the Grand Canyon first began to form. It shows what it would have looked like at that time and again, what plants and animals would have been in that area. The book also shows you the layers of rock and labels what would be in that layer of rock. Our kinders can learn a lot from illustrations in books even when the text may be somewhat advanced.
Here are a few more pictures from our week! I realized I have not been posting many photographs of these learners lately, so here are some from our week!
Have a great weekend!
