Talented Group

Matching map keys
With one week of school left after this week, we have dived into all the craziness and fun that the end of the year brings! We are wrapping up our academics by focusing on maps, map keys, and reading about the famous frontiersman, Davy Crockett. Their number proficiency has grown incredibly this year, as well as their reading and writing skills, which we put to work by creating hand-made cards for our book buddies (our last read together was this Thursday! Thank you book buddies!).

Playing the Ipu
This week was full of other fun things: six of our kindergarteners participated in the annual school-wide talent show. One of our students played her Ipu, a gourd-drum from Hawaii, and five others danced to the song "My Favorite Things". It was adorable, and we had so much fun cheering them on. Later in the week, we went to the Tahoe City Farmer's Market for the second time this year. I'm so glad we were able to make it there one more time before summer. The kids had a blast, and as I mentioned to many of the parents who were in attendance, it's amazing to see how much they'd grown since our September field trip there. They are so much more independent and self-sufficient. I'd also like to add how well they behaved on the bus ride to and from Squaw and the Farmer's Market. I felt SO proud of how well they comported themselves outside of the school grounds. Thank you all for your work this year!

Dancing to "My Favorite Things"
Finally, we went on one last hike of the year up through Shirley Canyon. Students explored the trails with excitement and happiness that the pathways are now cleared of snow. Thank you again so much to Allyson Schreiber and Meggie Inouye for advocating for this to be a weekly event, and for helping out so much on the hikes this year. The kids loved it! Here's to a fun week, and we are all looking forward to our final week of fun next week. Have a beautiful weekend!!
