Kindergarten Update

Kindergarten students are learning about Pablo Picasso.  We learned that he was from Spain and that he went to France.  We also learned that when he was very sad, he painted with blue, grey, and black. When he was happy, he painted with orange, pink, and red.  He also liked to paint with shapes: rectángulos, círculos, cuadrados, and triángulos.  One of his most famous paintings is Los tres músicos, The Three Musicians.  Students colored their own version of Los tres músicos to bring home.

We have also been working on numbers.  Kindergarten students have loved counting by twos in Spanish.  We have talked about growth mindset and how challenges help our brains grow.  Students were amazed to see how much easier counting by twos in Spanish became with practice.  We grew our brains!!!

Profe printed out some pictures of Picasso's famous paintings, laminated them, and cut them apart.  We put them together like puzzles.  This was an especially big challenge because we did not have a picture of what the painting looked like; we matched the pieces by shape and color.  After we put the painting together, we decided whether Picasso was feliz or triste when he painted it:
