We continued our Polar Express unit and yesterday we read the story Night Tree and we talked about how both of the story were different and the same. The biggest thing we noticed were that in both stories, the characters had hot chocolate.
We then brainstormed describing words about hot chocolate using our senses. We took those words and wrote them on mugs and decorated those mugs with cotton ball “marshmallows”.
It is apples week in the Kindergarten All-Stars classroom. We read apple math books like “Ten Red Apples” and “Ten Apples on Top“, and then we created our own apple trees and wrote the number of apples on them.
Then we read the story “The Biggest Apple Ever” and compared that story with “The Biggest Pumpkin Ever“. Then we made homemade apple cider using a juicer and wrote about the apple cider using describing what it looks like, smells like, and tastes like.
We are learning about describing words and we’ve been applying them to our 5 senses in writing. We read the Poem by Robert Frost “Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening”. We identified descriptive words in the poem as well as other descriptive words that match our 5 senses.
Then incorporated our descriptive words into writing about our own winter woods about things we can see, hear, touch, taste, or feel.
