The Cutest Peas in the Pod

This week, we celebrated the letter "R" so Ms. Tricoli chose Amy Krouse Rosenthal as the author of the week. Ms. Tricoli read the book Little Pea and the kindergartners had a pea flinging contest.

Each student took a turn at flinging a frozen pea off of a spoon.

After each flinging, Ms. Tricoli helped the students measure how far the pea went.

After measuring how far their pea went, each student made a little pea out of construction paper and recorded their distance on a number line graph.

Ms. Tricoli displayed each class's graph in the hallway for everyone to see. Mrs. Larremore's pea went farther than anyone else's!
