ROCKS!!!

We have loved learning about rocks and will continue to through next week!  We brought in our own rocks and made observations, shared a friends rock to make observations, sorted our rocks by size, clarity, luster, color, and weight, and dug through sand and silt to be geologist and study rocks!

BOOSTERTHON!

Boosterthon is HERE!  We are so excited!  Our goals are here

Day 1 - We were the top class in the school with participation of people who have registered! (100%) 


Day 2- We were the top class in KINDERGARTEN of money per lap raised.  (If a flat donation is given it is dived by 30 laps --for example $60 flat donation would equal $2 per lap)




Tomorrow's challenge is to have the most new donations! If we win for our grade level we get a SUPER COOL recess kit!  Please help us! Call grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc....
I am kind of competitive :)















Living vs Nonliviing

We explored earthworms and gummy worms.  We started with worms. 
Do the move by themselves?
Do the breathe? 
Do they reproduce? 
Do they need food, water, or air? 
Do they grow and change? 

They LOVED it!  The squealed and squirmed!














Composing and Decomposing Numbers

What does it mean to compose and decompose numbers?   If you compose a number you out it together.  If you decompose a number you break it apart. Our  math standards state we can compose and decompose numbers 11-19.  Students must see one of these numbers as 10 and some more.  For example, the number 14 is 10 and 4 more. We would write that number sentence as 10+4=14.
