Kindergarten in Action!

Make your own photo slideshow at Animoto.

Today we had a chance to read Dr. Seuss's "Hop on Pop" and found all of the rhyming words in the book! Afterwards, we practiced speaking rhythms with food words (Cheese, Pizza!) To break up class a little bit, we sang the hokey pokey and had a few laughs as everyone tried to stick their ears, elbows, and even tongues into the circle! Thanks to Ms. Strehlow for taking these pictures of us today!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentines Day from all of us in Mr. Estrella's classes to you.  The last few days, we have been getting into the spirit of Valentines Day, with Guitar playing "Black is the Color of my True Love's Hair", 4th and 6th grade learning the parts of the Jazz Standard "Heart and Soul", and 1st and 2nd grade learning the song "Special Valentine" and the motions that go with it.  These pictures show students from Ms. Segovia's 2nd grade students and Mrs. Martinez's 1st grade students singing and moving to "Special Valentine".  That's all for now, I'll be back soon with videos!
