Last week, kindergarten started working on an insect research writing project. Groups from each class have been researching butterflies, bees, ladybugs and ants. By the end, students will have learned so much and have written a small research paper about what they have learned. We are so proud of their hard work in writing this year.
We also have an exciting extra piece to our unit this year. One of our kindergarten parents’ family owns Bee Weavers in Navasota, Texas and graciously allowed us to borrow an observation beehive and send our kindergarteners home with some honey treats and information. Thank you to the Weaver family, we are so grateful for this addition to our project this year and for the yummy honey treats for the kindergarteners and staff. Victoria is in Mrs. Roberts’ kindergarten class and was thrilled to share the bees and treats with her friends!
This week, Kindergarten completed their insect research writing project. This project was cross-curricular in that the students were studying insects in science, using technology to find facts, creating PowerPoint presentations on their insect in computer and reading about them in library. The insects that they made in art are now proudly on display in the library. What a fun way to end our kindergarten year! The kindergarten teachers are so proud of the students for all their hard work.
