Fun Times at Reidenbaugh
Each month we will take a look at all of the fun things our “Hoppers” are doing at Reidenbaugh.
Kindergarten has been very busy establishing routines and getting to know each other. They are really enjoying the morning meeting activities that focus on the cooperation and self-control parts of “Reidenbaugh C.A.R.E.S.”
On September 17th all of the Kindergarten classes participated in “Dot Day.” The day is based on the book titled, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds. Each teacher read the book in their classroom and afterwards each class did an activity where they rotated to the other kindergarten classrooms. The activities incorporated all subject areas: the students created dot sculptures, dot paintings based on the book titled Ten Black Dots, used the Quiver app to make 3 dimensional spheres out of a dot picture, practiced opinion writing while describing their favorite dot activity, and they sang a dot song. For a snack they had dot candy. It was definitely a dot filled day!
Kindergarten students have also participated in a variety of activities to reinforce the ELA and math concepts being covered in kindergarten. They visited the STEAM lab to complete a design challenge where they were challenged to use a variety of materials to build their name and then a class book was created to integrate reading and writing into the activity.
The MDS class has been busy getting into routines and meeting new friends in our school!
They have been learning about literary elements, as well as new core vocabulary words. In addition to their academic activities, they have had some very furry friends who visit them each week from K-PETs! Ben, the Goldendoodle, is one of their favorite therapy dogs that come into the classroom to visit them while they practice their gross motor skills.
They have also started doing their combined classroom meetings with their friends in other classrooms to continue ability awareness at our school. Mrs. Huntzinger’s class was the first class to visit them. They discussed what was different and what was the same about them as students. They had a blast!
