Light Table Imagination

Today we played with lots of cool stuff in The Maker Space. The Gingerbread man sent us an email. He likes to trick us to make sure we are looking at the letters at the start of the words when we are reading his email. He sent us a book about a special lady that liked chimpanzees. We learned about Jane Goodall. We played a game where we had to listen to a word and then replace the first letter with another letter and say the new word. It is very hard brain work. We decorated hands for a junior high project. We practiced our cutting skills. We had fun playing, What time is is Mr. Wolf and Popcorn in the gym. It was a fun day in Kindergarten

We played a counting game with unifix cubes. We played power of 10. We are practicing seeing numbers without counting. We can use dice at home to practice. We should be comfortable seeing lots of different items arranged in different ways up to the number 5. ( like dot arrangements that are different than on a dice). We watched an owl video. Ask me to tell you a fact about owls. We stayed inside all day. It was too cold outside. We had fun playing during indoor recess. We had a cozy kindergarten day.
