Measuring in the Sun

Submitted by megan.oropeza on

In kindergarten, we’ve been learning about measurement. Two of our vocabulary words are shorter and taller. We went outside on a sunny day and traced each other‘s bodies then talked about whose were taller and whose were shorter. The kids loved it!

Spend, or save?!?! What would you do with your money?

Submitted by megan.oropeza on

Our week of learning about jobs and money culminated in a field trip to Zion’s Bank. They were amazing hosts!!!

After a small lesson in saving and letting our money accumulate, Kindergarteners were able to spend their dollar at the Mustang Market for a quick treat fix, or invest it at Zion’s Bank.

After a quick tour (and the lapse of time), students who saved their money were able to turn in their deposit receipt and withdraw not just $1, but TWO! Followed by a trip to the Mustang Market.
