First Day of Spring

Today was the first day of Spring. We watched a video about Spring. We talked about what happens in Spring and then we wrote about what we see in Springtime. We shared our stories with our friends. Mrs. Kitson read us a book about Jane Goodall. We learned how a scientist is patient and looks closely and takes their time. We are being good reading scientists when we are listening and looking to learn how to read. We worked in a small group and put together our own alphabet chart. We are bringing home a little book. It is about Spring. We need your help to read this book. We love reading our little books to our family. We had lots of fun at Wondertime. It was a cheery day in Kindergarten.
