K-002 Caps for Sale & Our First Field Trip

K-002 Presents Caps for Sale!

We had our first kindergarten play! We had a great time acting out the story of the peddler, some monkeys and their monkey business! We talked about what we would need to put on a show.  We discussed characters, props and setting.  We spent time making some costumes and practicing our parts.  Our actors were awesome!  Class K-001 and Mr. Havlik came to watch our performance.  We also really enjoyed watching their performance of The Three Billy Goats Gruff! Ask your child about what it was like to be in a play and be part of the audience. Here are some pictures from our show:  

Our first Kindergarten trip to the Staten Island Children’s Museum was a great success. The children were very excited to ride the school bus over the Verrazano Bridge! At the museum, we participated in an art immersion workshop where students learned about the collage technique used in the illustrations of Eric Carle. Using the Eric Carle story, The Grouchy Ladybug, they created a collage by painting a watercolor wash and cutting and pasting a ladybug.
