Music Class At The Zoo

Kindergartners spent the day at the Oakland Zoo celebrating the Festival of Animals that they have been learning in Music.

With each piece of music, the children had to hunt to find the corresponding animal.

Lots of fun was had by all!

MPD Visits Kindergarten


In Kindergarten this week, we started our Community Helpers unit by a visit from our local Police Officer, Will Davis. He spent time with our Kindergartners and Hoot Owls, teaching us the many ways he helps to keep us safe.

We also were able to have a look in his vehicle and he gave us some good tips about staying safe at Halloween.

Kindergarten Butterflies

Last week, we finished our butterfly unit by setting free the butterflies that had been with us since they were tiny caterpillars. As scientists we have been predicting and recording our findings since these little friends arrived. Bye bye butterflies!

Kinder Fun On The Farm!


On Tuesday, Kindergartners continued their farm unit at the farm.

We collected our own eggs, brushed the pony, and saw many lovely farm animals, including Kevin the peacock and the fluffiest rabbit in the world!!!

We Love Our Buddies!

This week, Kindergartners worked with their third grade buddies exploring, gathering and charting their candy information. They love working and collaborating with their buddies, and learning through talk. Sadly, no candy was eaten. 😉

Cut Up/Cut Out at Bedford Gallery

This week Kindergarten went to the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek where we saw some truly amazing art that people created just by cutting! They definitely used their skills of perseverance to create such detailed works of art.

We then created our own art in their workshop and found out how truly talented our Kindergarten class is!

Moving Up Day

Yesterday the preschoolers – fifth graders participated in Moving Up Day!

The students and teachers alike were buzzing with excitement. Questions, stories, projects, and enthusiasm filled each classroom. Please ask the children all about it!
