Going To The Drive-In!

This week all the kindergarten and first grade students got to go to a drive-in movie in the gym.  Everyone brought their special car they made just for the occasion.  There were some awesome creations!  Naturally, we watched the movie “Cars.”  Each child enjoyed popcorn and a drink right in the privacy of their own car.  I would like to thank all the teachers, janitors, and other helpers who made this day a very special memory for all the students!

This Tuesday was the last time the boys and girls got to meet with their Reading Buddies.  The children made a wish for their buddy and we tied it onto a balloon.  Then we went outside to release the balloons if they wanted to.  The Reading Buddies spent a little time on the playground with us too.   We wish them all the best of luck!

On March 14th, both kindergarten classes went on a field trip to the St. Louis Science Center.  The boys and girls were allowed to visit the Discovery Room while they were there  .  As you can see, everyone had a great time!  We even got to see our Reading Buddies there!   There were a few brave souls who held the giant cockroaches!

The boys and girls had a lot of fun celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  They made a Cat in the Hat hat to wear.  They also made a yummy Cat in the Hat Snack.  We read lots of great stories too.  Our favorite was The Lorax.  Be sure to check out the awesome Truffula Trees hanging in our hallway!

Last week Dr. Adam Snyder came to our classroom to talk to the boys and girls about taking good care of their teeth.  Everyone got to brush an alligator’s teeth!  They also received a brand new toothbrush for doing such a great job!

We had a great Valentine’s Day in kindergarten!  There were lots of fun activities going on in our classroom.  For starters the boys and girls graphed candy hearts.   Then, they had an awesome Valentine’s Day party.  Thanks to all our wonderful parents for providing everything for the party!  To top it all off, each child received their very own Corduroy bear to take home and love.  It was a very exciting day!
