Take a peek at our Kinder Corner! We are excited to introduce our new segment, Kinder Corner, which will showcase the unique ways that our little ones learn, play and collaborate at different campuses throughout our district. To keep up with the fun and learn more about our kindergarten activities, stay tuned for future posts here and on our Facebook page.
The Nepohualtzintzin Ethnomathematics Club at Maverick Elementary School has 70+ members and is open to all grades, including kindergarten! During one of their meetings, students used an abacus-like instrument called a nepohualtzintzin (meaning “I count to transcend”) to practice counting and calculating. They also played a traditional Mesoamerican game, very similar to hopscotch. This club is possible through a partnership with UTSA and is available at a few other SAISD campuses, including Crockett Elementary and Douglass Elementary.
During Workout Wednesday at Lamar Elementary, students work out their bodies and their minds! Every other Wednesday, the Lamar kindergarteners participate in two of the following enrichment activities: a visit to the Witte Museum, Creativity Corner at their campus, extended P.E. time, or a visit to the Inspire Community Fine Art Center.
As part of their social studies lesson on community helpers, the kinder kids from Smith Elementary visited the San Antonio Fire Department's station #9 where they took a full tour of the fire station and got a closer look at the fire truck and a firefighter’s uniform.
Take a look at the colorful masks that the Bonham Academy kindergartners created for Dia de Los Muertos! They, along with the rest of the grade levels, created altars and held a Dia de Los Muertos Parade. Bonham Academy is one of our dual language, in-district charter schools - now taking applications.
During the Picnic Under the Stars event at Hillcrest Elementary, kindergarteners created their own unique sun spots or moon craters with only paper, paint, and a straw! Students and families were also able to look at the moon, stars, and planets through various telescopes provided by volunteers from the San Antonio Astronomical Association.
Fall is in full swing at Woodlawn Hills Elementary and M. L. King Academy! This week, kindergarteners at each campus used pumpkins of all sizes for their sensory investigations during their math and science lessons.
