South Side Elementary
Spring is an exciting time in kindergarten! Kindergarten is learning all about Chickens. We took a virtual field trip to the farm this week. There we learned all about hens and roosters. We also learned that the eggs in our refrigerators are different than the eggs we have in the incubators here at school. YES! We have eggs in our classrooms for the next few weeks. Then they will hatch and we will have little baby chicks. During those few weeks we will learn about the eggs, the chicks and what happens when they leave us and grow up to be chickens on the farm. We are all so exciting for this learning experience and that we will be able to hold baby chicks in about 3 weeks.
This week we were able to draw pictures and write inspirational messages on the sidewalk for the “Big Kids” that are getting ready to take round 2 of ISTEP. Kindergarten did their best work writing messages like “ROCK THE TEST!”, “Good Luck!” and “You can do it!”. Kindergarten has been learning about how to support each other, being good friends and showing good character. The ISTEP takers were able to walk down the sidewalks and see inspirational messages from the primary grade levels as we cheered and blew good luck bubbles their way! Good Luck on ISTEP!
