Kindergarten Science Fun!
Our kindergartners had to miss Computer Class this week because of MAP Testing, but that didn't stop the learning. áThey took the opportunity to learn some new words: Force, Motion,and Axis.
áTheyátalked about examples of force and motion in our world with cars, fish, birds and we deduced that we even used force and motion to eat an ice cream cone! áThey then put their new words together with "Axis" to talk about the motion of our earth as it revolves and rotates.áThey then had a little fun experimenting with their new words by spinning all kinds of fun tops. áThe learning (and fun) never stop at Mallory! á

Pre-Schoolers Make Play-Doh!
Recently, our youngest Bison at the Mallory Pre-School made their own Play-Doh!á They measured, poured, and mixed the ingredients.á The recipe called for 2 cups of flour, and 1 cup of salt.á I used a half cup measuring scoop and had the students tell me the number of half cup scoops we needed in order to correctly follow the recipe.á They were able to correctly convert the measurements. It was educational as well as helping students build fine motor skills and as you can see from the pictures, they had a great time.á
