Today we made bread and butter. We ground the wheat kernels to make flour and we shook a jar of whipping cream to make butter. We had a great snack of fresh bread and butter. Mrs. Kitson read us different versions of The Little Red Hen story. Ask me about the stories. We talked about the letter Q and who it always has a friend around. We drew wheat in our nature books. We had lots of fun in gym. We ran and ran and ran. We went outside for a nature walk. It was a fun day in Kindergarten.
Today Mrs Kitson read us the story, Rainbow Crow. It was an indigenous story that explained why the crow is black and makes the caw sound. Ask me about the story. We talked about the sacrifice that the crow made. We talked about the things we do for people, just like the crow. We played a dice game where we had to find the number that was just one more. We made our own crow puppets. You can sing the 5 Little Crows song with me. We played with our treasure boxes. We watched a video about the differences between crows and ravens. We drew a raven in our nature book, and talked about what we learned from the video. We made our own rainbow crows. In the afternoon we played in the forest. We had hot chocolate and gingerbread man cookies. We also went and played on the mountain. We had a fun day in Kindergarten.
