60 Minutes of Play!

Dr. Katie was in today teaching us about our cardiovascular system!  We got to feel our pulse when we were resting AND after doing activity!  What a big difference!  She taught us that we need to do 60 minutes of activity a day that gets our pulse up!  That was a good reminder for me too!  We got to go outside and do different activity stations!  Since it was her last day with us, she gave everyone a water bottle and some stickers to decorate it with!  Thank you, Dr. Katie!

Seeds and plants!

We were busy this week turning out class into a garden!  We planted seeds and have been watering them and bringing them outside in hopes that they will sprout soon!  We also made a "paper garden" on our class to show that we know the parts of the plant!

I made it back from Uganda!

Boy did I miss our class!  I had a wonderful time in Uganda though!  I was able to work with kindergarten teachers at a school called Musana in a village in the district of Iganga!  We worked on incorporating books into the classroom which is not something Ugandans do!  I feel like we made some great breakthroughs!  AND...I learned a ton too!  Uganda is a culture of songs, chants, and celebrations and I learned all kinds of great way to uplift and celebrate the kiddos in my class!
We did a Venn diagram in class today to see what is the same and what is different about kindergarten in Uganda and Colorado!
Eating a Ugandan favorite...jackfruit!

Reading with kids in the nursery school!

We did some professional development with the little kid teachers and watched some videos of me teaching some lessons to my class!

Spring Party

We had an egg-cellent spring party today!!  We got to have some yummy fruit kebabs, make a bunny hat, and go on an egg hunt!  What a great day with my little bunnies!


Dr. Katie was in this week teaching us about the importance of water for our kidneys!  We also did an experiment to see how much sugar is in juice, milk, chocolate milk, and soda...yikes!
