Kindergarten E-time Update

Kindergarten has shifted gears with e-time and the students are getting the chance to explore an interest for several weeks now.  I had the opportunity to spend some time with the kindergarten kids who expressed an interest in sports last week.  Before we tried a couple of new games, we talked about good sportsmanship and how to play fair.  My favorite part of the discussion was when a young man commented that you help someone who is hurt, even if they aren't on your team.  How thoughtful!

Another kindergarten group is delving into the world of dinosaurs.  Their very brave guide, Mrs. Kaprelian, had a small group of students trying to make a model of a dinosaur via paper mache (sorry, can't get the accents!).  They weren't sure how to set it up but they gave it a go anyway.  I think the picture shows that they were doing a fabulous job, don't you?

Making dinosaurs!

The kindergarten e-time group next door was busy planning some very elaborate LEGO constructions.  It was clear that they had spent time working together to come with their creation ideas.  Take a look at this group's final product.

Look what we made together!
