Mo Willems, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ane Rovetta
Posted by Katherine Flores on 1/20/2018
We have read our Mo Willems collection. The students really enjoy his books. Our kindergartners will be selecting their favorite Mo Willems book and will either write a sentence about the book or write about their favorite part. The ornery pigeon is one of their favorite characters.
To celebrate Martin Luther King Day, the class learned a song about Martin. We read a book about his life and each student made a portrait of Martin.
One Friday, our favorite illustrator and story teller, Ane Rovetta taught the students how to draw a frog using oil pastel. I have uploaded pictures on SeeSaw.
For Science: We started our unit on Matter. Students were introduced to three types of matter: solid, liquid and gas.
For Writing: As we learn more about US symbols, students are also introduced to non-fiction text. We watched a video and read books about the Bald Eagle. This week, students will write one or two facts they learned about the Bald Eagle.
