  Learning Makes Me “Hoppy”   S t. Joseph’s School   What’s “Hop - pening” in Kindergarten   Week of March 26-30 An Eggs-cellent Week!! We painted paper eggs with food coloring andshaving cream. These made a beautiful mar-ble pattern and made our room smell wonder-ful. We learned how to tell the differencebetween a raw and a hard boiled egg just byspinning them. When stopped, the raw eggkeeps spinning because of the liquid inside.We read and learned about many oviparous,or egg laying, animals this week. We alsomade egg people...we decorated real eggshellsas people and planted grass seed at the topof their heads like hair! We also madestained glass eggs using tissue paper and pa-per plates! Reading & Language Arts We read Eggnapped this week and discussedthe many characters in the story. We con-tinue to focus on number words one throughfive. We used egg cartons to practice our sight words. We also worked on “telling” sen- tences. We are truly becoming sentence ex-perts in our ability to identify the naming andaction part of sentences. We also are sogood at noticing if there is a capital and aperiod. This week they watched a lamb pup-pet (Mr. Lamb...srcinal, eh?) do silly thingsand then they had to give me complete sen-tences that told what he was doing. We fo-cused on the /g/ sound at the beginning andend of words. Math We practiced counting by 10’s and used dimes to purchase items from our housekeeping area. We continue to count by 5’s and noware working on counting by 2’s. 2’s seem hard, but when we remember to skip a num-ber, we do really well. We also practicedordinal position, first through fifth, thisweek.

Weare using Resurrection eggs to retell thestory of Easter.   The Symphony Field Trip It was a great trip! It was a wonderful ex-perience to hear the orchestra play for us asthe conductor talked about the stories behindthe music Mozart composed. We learned whata harpsichord was and heard what it sounded like. We listened to some of Mozart’s music this week in preparation for our visit. We alsoread a wonderful story called Orchestrani-mals. In this book, we were introduced to allthe instruments we witnessed in Milwaukeeand we were introduced to some words likeconductor, baton, and concertmaster. Glue bottles and napkins!
