Granby Elementary Home to Kindergarten Royalty


All hail, kindergarten kings and queens at Granby Elementary School!
Students in grades one through six lined the school halls as they saluted and cheered the kindergarten royalty during the annual Kings and Queens parade. The kindergartners dazzled in crowns, robes and sashes as they waved to their kingdom before heading back to their classrooms.
The parade was a culmination of a Listening and Learning strand on royalty. Kindergarten Teacher Jessica Frost said students learned about royal families, vocabulary words about royalty, and read various stories about princesses, among other educational highlights. Students paired up to construct castles and families joined in on the royalty fun by helping their kindergartners create family crests as a project-based learning activity.


Granby Elementary School kindergartners stand proud as they
were recently recognized as royalty for a day by fellow students
during 
the annual Kings and Queens parade at the school.

Above is an SU-themed castle, one of many castles Granby
Elementary School kindergarten students made during an academic
unit on royalty.


Together, the Reed family created a family crest with their
daughter, Kaydence, for the Granby Elementary School
kindergarten project-based learning royalty activity. All crests
and castles are displayed in the kindergarten wing.
