St. Mary Early Learning Center (Charlotte)

The Developmental Kindergarten class at St. Mary’s Early Learning Center discussed who is on different coins and what each coin is worth. We sang a rhyme to help us remember. We traced a penny, nickel, dime and quarter then we wrote the name of each. We also talked about the bones in our body and had the opportunity to pick a bone and then draw it on our group paper. We drew the body with the cranium, sternum, ribs, heart, pelvis, femur, patella, tibia and fibia, tarsel, carpel, ulna, radius and our humerus. We like to say the names of the bones. We are sorting different items by tens and then counting to 100. We even jumped 100 times by counting by ones. We felt our heart beat and fou

Did you know that fruit may actually help kids do better in school? It's true! A 2008 study published in the "Journal of School Health" notes that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables results in higher test scores. A healthy diet that includes fruit can also increase children's focus in the classroom so they are able to learn new information, as well as retain what they've learned. Fruit is low in fat and calories, supplies key nutrients that kids need to grow and helps protect kids from illnesses and diseases as well. Elementary-age children need between 1 and 1 1/2 cups of fruit every day. Here's a fun coloring activity for younger kids that helps them identify different types of fruit

Mr. President

Happy Presidents' Day! Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present. On this Presidents' Day, we take a look at our 33rd President, Harry Truman.

All About Books

As kids get older, it’s important for parents to be a resource for book ideas — even if kids don’t ask! Research shows parents underestimate that kids need help finding books. Only 29 percent of parents agree “my child has trouble finding books he/she likes,” whereas 41 percent of kids say finding books they like is a challenge. This number increases to 57 percent among infrequent readers. Kids World News and the Kent District Library are here to help! Each month, the librarians at Kent District Library comb review and recommend great books for kids! Check out the recommendations in today's All About Books! Have a great weekend! #books

All About Music

Did you know music is important to learning? It’s true! Music helps you understand math, practice good manners (including patience!), and become a team player. It helps to develop physical skills, improve social skills and boost self-esteem! Have you ever thought about playing an instrument? What instrument do you think you’d like to play? How about the violin? It’s one of the most popular string instruments. Learn more about the violin in today’s All About Music! #music

H. T. Smith Elementary

Have you seen The Big Bad Wolf? During Benchmark Literacy in Mrs. Woodward’s Kindergarten class, the class read The Three Little Pigs. The students learned to analyze characters during reading by looking at each character and talking about how it was feeling. They then talked about what it would be like to be each character. The class decided to act out The Three Little Pigs. As a group they came up with how to make the houses. The students also thought that it would be safer to have a pot of skittles to jump into rather than boiling water. Luckily, they were able to reason that we could not find a pot big enough or get enough Skittles to fill the pot. A small chair ended up working ju
