More Clouds!!

We acted out a play to explain how rainbows form.  The sun shines through the water droplets in the air, causing many colors to be showcased!  Check out our awesome actors and actresses!

Don't forget to talk with your child about what they're learning about clouds!  You may be impressed by what you hear!!  We've done experiments like "cloud in a bag" to understand that clouds are made of tiny water droplets.  They are also able to classify clouds as cumulus, stratus, cirrus, or contrail.

Clouds, Clouds, Clouds!

Our science focus right now is CLOUDS!  I hope your children have come home talking about cumulus, stratus, and cirrus clouds!  Here are some pictures of us making clouds with shaving cream!  The big, puffy clouds are cumulus clouds.  Stratus clouds are stretched out like a blanket.  Cirrus clouds are wispy, like a horse's tail!  See if you can figure out which ones are being made in each picture!!

Our first day of school!

We had a wonderful first day!  We learned our class rules and procedures, had snack, play-doh time, lunch, PE, story time, and even a nap!  Every child fell asleep!!  The first few days of kindergarten can really be tiring!!  Check out how great we looked on the first day!
