We have a new friend who is interested in our classroom and what we do. She is working with Mrs. Knee and us to learn about how to use technology in kindergarten. She sent a video to us so we could learn more about her.
We used Google Earth to learn more about Moose Jaw. It is kind of far from Deerfield. It is in a different country. It is in Canada, not the United States.
We skyped with Deanna and told her about the things we like. We had Canadian flags. She told us about Mac the Moose and we showed her Mrs. Knee’s little moose from Moose Jaw.
Then, Deanna sent us a video of Mac the Moose. We loved it. We think you will too.
Mrs. Knee made a video of us watching Deanna’s video so Deanna could see our reaction. We thought that Mac was really huge and humongous. It was the real color of a moose and it’s antlers were bigger than his body. Thank you Deanna, for showing us Mac the Moose. We can’t wait to talk to you again!
We participated in the The K-12 Virtual Valentines Project. This project is designed to teach students geographical awareness and understanding while connecting classrooms all around the world for Valentine’s Day. Our partner class is a kindergarten in Newfoundland, Pennsylvania. We found their school on Google Earth and noticed that their school is a different shape than our school. Our school is shaped like a square and their school is shaped like a hammer. We also wondered if they have a playground. We could not see a playground.
We used Kerpoof to make Valentine cards for our new friends and made a movie for them. We hope we can skype with them soon. Happy Valentine’s Day to Mrs. Conklin’s kindergarten class.
We’ve been counting the days we’ve been in school since our first day. Today was the 100th day of school. We made special hats that 100 things on them. We used 10 strips of paper and glued 10 things on each strip. When we count each strip, we count by 10’s. We can also count everything by 1’s but that takes longer. It took all day to put 100 things on our hats. We love our hats.
