Soooooo proud of our graduate! It's been such a whirlwind of a year - kind of sad to be visiting ND for the last time!
Our favorite days are when our PTA tells us not to pack a lunch! Swipe to see the ice cream bar!
The habitat group creating a mini eagle habitat to share with the rest of the class.
We are working in research groups to study and present information about eagles. The habitat group used chalk to show the size of an eagle's nest (small circle) and the largest eagle nest ever found (outside circle). Swipe to see my little eaglets in the nest!
We've been using this rain gauge to measure the rain this month - thanks @annettebund for this!
While I'm counting down the days, I know some of my kiddos are a bit anxious about leaving the kindergarten nest. I created this journal and series of activities to help ease that transition and give my kinders the opportunity to ask questions, share feelings and learn more about the next grade ahead! You can find it using the link in my bio!

This child is exploring force and motion by blowing on the pinwheels to try to knock over the dominoes - this is the kind of experimentation that occurs when children are given time to play with materials! #letthemplay
