Hello Kindergarten Families!
How are you? This week of POLs has been such a sweet time. I am sharing the students' words about this, as well as some videos we have been trying to watch. Unfortunately the internet has been either so slow or not working, so we have not been able to watch too many. I told the kids that hopefully if I post them here, you could watch them. Again, I feel these "How Things Work" ideas can lead to many interesting summer investigations for your family! Have a beautiful day, Jennifer
PS Today all the students were here at once, so we took class photos! More at the bottom. :)
How is POL week feeling for you, as a presenter and as a classmate?
