Operation Pollination 2019

Operation Pollination! Today’s students learned that milk weed is a critical resource for our native Ca. environment, and for Monarch butterfly’s! The nectar in the milkweed is the ONLY food source that the caterpillars of the Monarch butterfly eat! After learning and writing all about milkweed, students got to plant milkweed in our butterfly garden to help the endangered monarchs! ❤️🐛🦋

Coco Chanel Lesson

We wrapped our National Women’s Month learning & writing all about Coco Chanel another inspiring book from the biographical series “Little People, Big Dreams”, by Isabel Sanchez Vegara. Students loved learning about the power of using your imagination, and that it’s GOOD to be different! They also enjoyed trying their hands at sewing the letters COCO and dressing up like the iconic designer herself!

Letter ‘Y’

Working on letter ‘Y’ with our Tk/and Kinder friends. Students had fun playing our phonics game and brainstorming words that start with ‘Y’ like yak, yogurt, yo yo, and yellow yarn. We sharpened fine motor skills by sewing yellow yarn letters and creating sight words that begin with ‘Y’. Yay! 💛📝

Ada Lovelace Lesson

We are Completely obsessed with this biography series Little People, Big Dreams written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara! Each week during National Women’s month students are learning and writing about little girls who grew up and changed the world! I LOVE the message this sends our little girls & boys! This week we learned about the amazing Ada Lovelace, a women mathematician that invented the calculator and became the first computer programmer! ❤️📚
