In kindergarten, we do so much and learn so many new things. In reading, the first few months of school we learn to recognize letter name and sound correspondence and phonemnic awareness. Then we begin to learn about sight word recognition, writing skills, rhyming, blending words, and grammar skills.
Now we are reading lots and lots! In math, we learn shapes, patterning, number recognition, coins, telling time, addition, subtraction, more and less, and so much more. We also learn science and social studies skills too. We are very busy in kindergarten.
Friday, March 22, several students drove their tractors – great, big tractors – to school at the high school in Eden Valley. It was all part of National Agriculture Week. Yet another reminder of how important and pervasive agriculture is in our communities.
There are 20 students in our class. We'll learn about National Parks this Spring as we compose research papers and create iMovies with the information. We'll also learn about forces and energy in science class.
Sixth-grade students tour the State Capitol and Historic Fort Snelling in May. We learned to ski at Powder Ridge in December, which proved to be an adventure for everyone!
