The paper airplane design we used I learned from my son's kindergarten teacher, Mr. Mike Butler. It's a good flyer. Martin's plane flew particularly well.
Later in the year, starting around December, the kindergarten class will stay until 1:30 on Wednesdays. On the first Wednesday each month they will be involved in a school-wide activity we call Tribes.
Today in Tribes we did a pumpkin hunt in the back field. The students ranging from first through sixth grades had a lot of fun. Here are some photos taken this afternoon back there.
