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!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us at Saklan! We couldn’t catch the leprechaun, but at least he left some gold and sweets behind.☘️

Enjoy the slideshow from this fun day!

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!


East Bay SPCA Visits Saklan

This week in Kindergarten we were very fortunate to be visited by Justin Kurup and his dog Mikko. We learnt about how the SPCA helps domestic animals and we also discovered we knew a lot about looking after dogs and cats!

The visit was lots of fun and included many wet kisses from Mikko.

Kindergartners And Their Buddies

Last week, Kindergarten spent time with their buddies reading their incredible stories that they have worked so hard on. Later, they developed their amazing collaboration skills making gingerbread men and snowflakes.

Kindergarten Fun

This week in Kindergarten we decorated gingerbread men.

Also, we have been playing the dreidel game. It is a great way to learn about how the holidays are celebrated by some, develop our math, work on our listening skills, and of course have fun!
