The kindergarten kids are learning about 3D shapes so they can pretend to be elves in Santa's Workshop!We are talking about and looking at the sides, edges, corners, etc. of 3D shapes and finding lots of classroom objects that are similar. We are learning to use words like straight, curved, point, top, corners, edges, hollow, solid, roll and flat in order to play I spy and to explain sorting rules. We have noticed that some 3D shapes have triangles, rectangles, circles and squares on their sides! Can your child point out the cylinders, cones, cubes and rectangular prisms? Wow!Here are some videos that help reinforce shape concepts and vocabulary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYaQoBilyls (link is external) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIBwyohrLmA (link is external) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiMwcxaFsIY (link is external) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIPJrZNAYb4 (link is external) (link is external)

We had fun talking about the terms before and after today. The children could answer questions like what do you do before you get out of bed? (Wake Up) and What do you do after you go to bed? (Go to sleep) Have fun with this at home - before/after supper? before/after playing?

The children thought these videos were hilarious! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLI00https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86C...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1ctoilyz4I   

Wow! We heard and found the letter r all over the place! We watched rabbit videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DR0wgAMSJ4A(link is external) We read a story about Rudolph and sang the song too:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lM6mDRhKAcA We have lots of students that start with R: Rylan, Rylie and Ryker. Other students found the letter r at different places in their names and on their clothing. Can they spell the Christmas color that starts with r? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMfkODJw30M
