Lower School Science Lab

This week in Science lab, First Graders learned the words “classify”, “observe”, and “specimen”. Students examined nuts and seed specimen in ziplock baggies. We used goggles, gloves, and smocks. Then we classified plastic insects into groups with similar characteristics. We observed seeds that had been classified by type. Over the next few weeks we will be learning what a scientist does: observe, predict, measure, compare, classify, and infer.

As always, we are looking for donations! Wipes , GermX, and Kleenex are always needed in the art room. Thank you for always supporting the Art program at CA and remember to ask your children what they are learning and doing in the art room!

Kindergarten

Kindergarten will be going on our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom scavenger hunt for our alphabet letters this week. This is a fun and interactive way to tour the school and also recognize letters. Once we find our letters, we will work as a class to put the letters in ABC order. The students will visit Mrs. Turnage (front office), Mrs. Parker (nurse), Mrs. Kaki (Cougar Store), Mrs. Stowe (cafeteria), the Coaches in the gym. This scavenger hunt will help students become comfortable with key people they will come in contact with while at school. Our kindergartners will also create their own Chicka Chicka tree in class this week. As we focus on the color words for the next two weeks the students should dress in the corresponding color: Monday-Red, Tuesday-Yellow, Wednesday-Blue, Thursday-Green, Friday-Orange, Monday-Purple, Tuesday-Pink/Gray, Wednesday-Brown, Thursday-Black/White, Friday-Favorite color or school spirit colors. They will be learning to read, write, spell, and sing about the colors. The Kindergarten teachers are looking forward to a wonderful year.
