Field day is now TUESDAY,  MAY 12 @ 11:30 
On the 22 our shirt color will be RED. 

New Math Stations

We love our new Math Stations 

We are sitting buttons by their attributes. 

Using our measurement app to practice measuring length, height, weight, and capacity. 



We are still practicing place value on the smart board. 

We are working on afdition facts by matching the sum of a domino to the correct number. 


We are practicing manipulating shapes to make a new shape. 


We are working in addition and subtraction using pictures. 


We are also using www.shepardssoftware.com to play different math games. 

We rolled 2 ten sided dice and found the sum 


Animal projects

We had a lot of fun with our animal projects. We worked hard to research a specific animal and determine its food, habitat, covering -and compare the baby to the adult. After we presented all our information we were also able to tell if our animal was an insect, mammal, reptile, amphibian, fish, or bird.

Length and Height

Today we explored 2 of the qualities objects are measure by...length and height. 


First let's look at height (how tall something is). 
Who is taller?

Can you compare them and put them in order from least to greatest? 

Shelby is taller!!!  Oh wait! In order to measure something you must compare them all equally!


Much better! 


Now let's look at length (how long something is)


Uh oh...Landon isn't starting his measurement at the same spot as everyone else! 


Now we're talking!  These guys are ready to me measured.

Next we used linking cubes to measure objects in the classroom. 




We recorded our predictions and the measurement in our journals. 



A great app to help your kindergartner with measure my is Measurement HD. We will be using it to reinforce the skills we are learning. 



On our second day of exploring measurement we used a Popsicle  stick to compare and measure objects. 

We started with finding three (or more) things that were shorter than our Popsicle stick. 


Then we found 3 (or more) objects that were shorter than our Popsicle stick. 





Next, we measured length. We paired up and measure each other using linking cubes.
