Taking care of animals

Hi everyone! Sorry its been awhile since I have updated the blog! I can't believe its almost June!! We have been working hard in getting ready for first grade! A couple of updates:

-Today, we went on a trip to the Green Meadows Farm! Everyone saw animals up close such as chickens, a pig, rabbits, mice, peacocks, and we even got to ride a pony. It got me thinking more about how we need to take good care of animals because they are living things too and have feelings! Check out this website to learn more about how to take care of animals:

-Speaking of animals, we counted the money donated for Heifer and our class has raised up to $67!!! Thank you families of donating! Our class has voted and we decided on getting a share of a cow to give!

-For our end of year, kindergarten celebration our class will be singing two songs. We started practicing one of them---if you want a copy of the song-I can email it to you to have your child practice at home. On Tuesday, I will send home copies of the song!

Have a beautiful Memorial day weekend! :)

Thank you to all the families that came on Friday to celebrate mother's day with us! Our class always enjoys visitors! :) We hope all the moms/grandmas/aunts loved the roses! For anyone who would like a video of the song "My Mom" sung to the tune of the Temptations "My Girl," please email me and I will email it to you!

Do you know roses are plants? All flowers are plants! But there's more to plants than flowers! This month, we're learning all about plants! At the Queens County Farm, we all planted radish seeds! They're going tall and strong on our windowsill! We even started a plant journal to write about how much its changing! Later on this month, we will be growing other vegetables too!

Until then, watch this video from National Geographic for Kids about plants:

Also when you go to the library, try looking in the nonfiction section for books about real things! They are great books to read and also to learn more about our world!

Eating Healthy!

Hi families! Have you heard that our lunch room is now serving healthy food? :) We have been getting to try lots of new healthy recipes. One of them was black eyed peas! YUMMY!

Some of the healthiest foods we can get are vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds! Try some new healthy food this month!

Also all this talk about eating healthy makes me think about what we will be learning this month: Planting! A lot of the healthy food we eat comes from healthy plants! When we went to the Queens County Farm, we saw a bit of the vegetables that they were growing!

April showers bring May flowers and now it's MAY! :D As we learn all about nonfiction books and how to write nonfiction writing-we will explore all about plants-the different parts, the different kinds--I am SO excited!! We also get to use some of the compost that our worms have been making to help our plants grow! Thank you to all the families that have been bringing in their leftovers to help feed our worms:
