Fall in Kindergarten!

Last week we learned all about the season Fall!

In math we made spooky fall math stories and had a pretend campfire to tell our stories around. I sent the haunted houses and ghost, goblins and pumpkins home so your family could tell spooky math stories and practice our math facts :)

In writing we made a class book about what we like to do in the fall. Then the students recorded their voices into a QR code and the students can read the book in the library. While they read they can scan the code with the iPad and hear each kindergartener tell their own story!

We enjoyed going on a fall walk to find different signs that fall is here. Here are some of the reasons the kids knew that it is fall. The kindergarteners took all of the pictures with the iPads!

Leaves are on the ground. 

The trees have no leaves. 

The Spirit Lake football players are playing on Friday nights. 

The trees are all different colors.

We love to throw leaves in the fall. 

Pumpkins are ready to be carved. 

This week we have been learning about spiders. The kids created their own spider and wrote one fact they have learned about spiders. 

After learning about how spiders spin their webs, we made our own giant spider web!

Charles came from the Nature Center to teach us all about spiders and their environments!

Oh yes and one more very exciting thing happened! We got our second postcard from our postcard exchange! We are doing a postcard exchange with the 50 states in the United States. We will send out 50 postcards one to each state and then we will receive a postcard from every state. So far we have gotten a postcard from New York and Oregon! The kids were very excited and cannot wait to learn about the next state!
