Rocks and Soil

 Last week we started learning about ROCKS!  The kids were really excited.  We started by telling what we know about rocks.  Then we wrote about what we want to learn about ROCKS!  Then we got started by "excavating" chocolate chip cookies!  Just like rocks, chocolate chip cookies are made of many parts, including "minerals" (chips).

The idea for this activity came from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits

St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is full of excitement in kindergarten.

I made these little treats for my kinders and hid them in a bag of treasure.  I got this cute little idea from Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher.

We also had a visit from a leprechaun.  The kids were soooo excited.  They had to look around the room to find their treasure.  The treasure was a little bag like the one about and a class sized treat of "Leprechaun Dust" (a.k.a. pistachio pudding).  They thought it was yogurt but loved it anyway!

We also wrote about what we would do if we found a pot of gold and made "Loopy Leprechauns" to go with them.  I got the idea for the leprechauns from Cara at First Grade Parade.
