On Valentine’s Day each child got their very own Corduroy to take home.  They were so excited.  It was a lot of fun!




Family Project!!!



We read the story “Snowmen At Night” by Caralyn Buehner and then sent home a snowman for the children to imagine what snowmen did at night.  The children and their families came up with some great ideas.  We have snowmen sledding, playing baseball, dancing, skating and more.  What a wonderful imagination this class has!!!!

Fabulous Fall!




We have been working hard and having a lot of fun this fall in kindergarten.  We had a visit from the firefighters, went on a leaf hunt, had an all school Thanksgiving feast and so much more.


On election day we read a story called “Duck for President” and voted for who we wanted to be president – duck or farmer.  Duck won by a landslide.

We have had a very busy first full month of school.  One of our favorite things to do is practice our skills in math and language work stations.  We have been learning about the 5 senses in science and using all of our senses while we conduct our experiments.  Mrs. Baalman, our principal, came and read a special story to our class.  Kindergarten is a great place to be!


Chicka Chicka BOOM! BOOM!

Whew!  It has been a whirlwind week in kindergarten.  We are off to a GREAT start!  We have been working on the classroom rules and the first 2 DWP (Discipline with Purpose) skills.  We have been practicing those rules and skills during centers, recess, reading, math and science.  Our story this week was Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom by Bill Martin Jr.  We read the story together, made predictions and retold the story.  A lot of fun and learning in the first week of school!
