Videoconference with California State Parks

Yesterday, we had Open House. Many people in our community came into our classroom to see the many things we are learning. Some of them even came in when we were spending some time learning about tide pools during a videoconference with a California State Park interpreter at Crystal Cove State Park. We were able to do this because of the assistance of LAUSD Educational Technology Group loaning the necessary equipment to hold this event.

Did you miss our Open House? Have no worries! That is why we are also sharing our classroom in this way. And below is your chance to see highlights of our videoconference session, which was edited using Windows Movie Maker and uploaded to TeacherTube.

Field Trip to Cabrillo Beach and Marine Aquarium

Yesterday, we went to Cabrillo Beach and Marine Aquarium. For many of us, it was our first time seeing the beach. While we were there, we observed the wind, since we are also learning about it as well.

A-Hunting We Will Go

We just came back from our Spring Break, but we recalled the day before we went on break when we looked all over our kindergarten playground for colorful eggs. First, we decorated our bags to welcome the coming of Spring. Then, we went outside our classroom and discovered that eggs were scattered all over our playground. We each had to find no more than 15 eggs on this day. Some of us finished early and began helping our classmates find others that were hidden in places not easily found. After our egg hunt, we went into the classroom to count the number of eggs we each collected. After making sure that everyone had 15 eggs, we opened them to find surprises inside the egg containers.

Did you go on your own egg hunt this past break? How many did you find? What do you discover inside your eggs?
