Week 32 Letter Ww, Money, Wind, Mud, and WORMS!

Just a pic of a little happy (slightly dirty) puppy to start our blog! 


 This was a crazy week in Kindergarten with several very fun and interesting themes happening!
Monday was WIND DAY!
We recorded findings like a scientist as we predicted how many breaths of wind it took to move items!



We made whirligigs to play with the wind...

 And we recorded good and bad things about the wind.
 We read a book called Wind Blown where pieces of paper get rearranged by the wind into cool pictures.
Then we made our own pictures with those same scraps!

Here are a few more beautiful rainbows!


 Monday morning also had new morning challenges:
Rabbit Greater Than...
