February 19-23


Happy Presidents’ Day!  This week the Kindergarteners celebrated Presidents’ day.  We read the story Presidents’ Day by Anne Rockwell. It explains that we celebrate Presidents’ day to honor those that have “lead” the country, especially George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  We also talked about the President’s job and how they help our country.  The president helps make laws to keep us safe.  We brainstormed ideas of things we would do if we were President.  Some of our ideas were realistic and some were just fantasy.  We each wrote down one of our ideas and then illustrated our idea.  Then we put them together into a class book titled “If I were President….”  We also completed a science experiment.  We tried to clean pennies.  We found out that pennies look dirty and dull because the copper reacts to the air.  We tried cleaning pennies with soap+water, vinegar, orange juice, ketchup, and vinegar+salt.  After we let them soak for 10 minutes, we washed them off with water.  We found out that vinegar+salt cleaned them the best.  We ended the week with a Lenten Retreat at church.
