In Kindergarten, we completed our Painted Lady’s Butterfly Unit with the release of our hatched Painted Lady’s. The children have also helped bring in Spring by planting herbs in our school garden. The joys of new life have been so present, exciting and supported by our hands-on activities, class art, wonderful stories and writings. We have moved into our Opinion Writing learning to use writing in terms of persuading someone as to how to do something with logical reasoning. The children went on a field trip across the street to witness the new construction happening in our school neighborhood and have been working on individual letters to the construction crew as to what they think should be built and focusing on the many reasons why our ideas should be heard! Such joy in writing combined with real world application!
