    We continue to countdown the alphabet to the last day of Kindergarten!  For the letter E, the kids conducted experiments with candy on Tuesday.  They were amazed to see what happens when you just add a little warm water to colorful candy.

  • More Force and Motion!

    Posted by Colleen Stevens on 5/10/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Kids used ramps, balls, cars and other objects to explore with force and motion.  Kids made predictions and experimented with many materials to see why certain objects moved quickly, slowly or not at all!

    The kids take turns using the Google Nexuses during Reading Workshop. When they are not private reading, partner reading or reading in guided reading groups, they read books on RAZ Kids.
