I have received a grant from Dairy in the Classroom.  We are going to have 5 lessons on dairy farming and cooking with dairy.  Our guest farmer, Miss Virginia, will be in the classroom every Thursday for the next 5 weeks.  We are also hoping to go to visit a dairy farm.

We have started learning about cowboys.  We have a dress up corner in our classroom.  Enjoy the photos of the cowboys in the classroom.

On February 14th, we celebrated our 100th day of Kindergarten and Valentine's Day.  We counted to 100, built with 100 cups, made a 100 piece puzzle, sorted 100 sea creatures and built an anchor for our classroom ocean with 100 links in the chain.

Our Classroom Ocean!




On January 12, my class went to Otter Valley to visit our buddies for the final time.  We used Chrome books to complete ocean activities, built an ocean scene in the hallway, played some ocean card games like go fish and concentration and made a graham cracker ocean snack.  Here are some pictures of our trip.

On December 15th, our Otter Valley Buddies came to our classroom to make the "food for the animals" ornaments from the book Night Tree by Eve Bunting.  Then we travelled to the woods behind Mrs. Peduto's house and hung our ornaments on the pine trees so the wild animals can have a feast for the holidays.  Enjoy our pictures of our day.

On November 17th, my class went to visit our Otter Valley Buddies.  We made several Thanksgiving crafts, added to the OV Thankful Tree and made some Thanksgiving snacks with our buddies.  Enjoy the pictures of our time at Otter Valley.
