Our first day of Kindergarten was a fantastic one! We are all getting to know each other and are keeping very busy. We had a Gingerbread Man hunt around campus early this morning. This afternoon we made an entry in our journals and enjoyed going to PE. Enjoy our first official class picture of the year!

Thanks for sharing your children with me!

Last week, we wrote Haikus, a Japanese art of poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. Because we are kindergarteners, we kept the idea of 17 syllables all together but adjusted the numbers of syllables per line a little. The lines rarely rhyme in haikus.
If you have time stop by to see it.
Enjoy the attached Gazette.

Where in the world is our class?
This week we traveled to South America where we are learning about the rain forest and the Andes. So much fun! So much learning!
Enjoy Spring break! See you on April 8th


Guess who was our Mystery Reader yesterday? The famous Mrs. Manning, our Early School Dean! The kids all loved having her in our class!
Some knew her from Early School and some knew her from Tree House. What a treat! Thank you Mrs. Manning for taking the time to come and surprise our class!
