We have begun working with the four processes in Kindergarten. Our children are being introduced to these processes through stories about our four little gnomes. Abigail Addition, Sally Subtraction, David Divide, and Malachy Multiply are each teaching us how to count and sort numbers in their own ways. The children have loved these stories and are really diving in to their math lessons with great enthusiasm.
We have been out side exploring the farm in all its icy wonder. The children filled a bucket with water on Monday and we have been checking on it all week. Sure enough, when we went outside today, the bucket had frozen. Kinder had a wonderful hands on example of what the freezing weather is doing on and around the farm.
Happy New Year! We hope that everyone enjoyed the winter break! The Saplings returned to school happy to be with friends, play and eat! We learned a new rhyme, Jack Be Nimble and practiced jumping over the candlestick made of blocks! They loved it! Many of the children look like they had a growth spurt over the break and look like big boys and girls!
