This is the first day of STAR testing at Dunham. We don't do STAR tests in kindergarten, but we are affected by them because the morning schedule changes to accommodate the testing schedule. Our mid morning recess is pushed back until 10:15.
A longer schedule gives us more time to delve into interests. The kids in the writing center made newspapers. Here, have a look:
In the block center, students built refuges large enough to crawl inside.
We also went outside to admire the improvements to our garden area.
