January 24-28

This week we did some sequencing activities with winter events.

It was too cold to go outside, but our bodies need to move, so we did some exercises with our Dr. Jean Better Bodies and Brains DVD!

100th Day of School

The 100th Day of School is a very anticipated day in Kindergarten!

Throughout the day we read these 100 Day books.
The first activity we did is put 100 ice cubes in a bowl and each student estimated where he or she thought the water would be once all the ice was melted. This was a great lesson in how ice melts and turns into water.

During our morning meeting each student stood up and told us about their 100 Day fashions. Mrs. Abraham and Mrs. Moran also sported their 100 Day shirts!
Later in the day the students practiced writing from 1-100

made a 100's day snack where they counted out 10 pieces of each of the 10 snack items

and used 100 foam shapes to make the number 100

The kids were a bit excited, but once they slowed down- they crashed and had to be woken up to examine the melted ice in the bowl.

January 10-14

This week was another 4 day week due to a snow day on Monday!
Tuesday we got right back to work with our math and learning all about 17, 18, and 19.
Tuesday Mrs. Brenda, the nutrition lady, came to teach us about fruits.
This week we read The Mitten retold by Jan Brett and we made a mitten with all of the animals so we could retell the story.
Friday afternoon we had a real people reader! It was a student in our class!!!!! He did great and read with such womderful expression.

December 13-17

The children were so excited about making a gingerbread boy and girl. First the dough was rolled out, then the kids were shaped, then we added candies to decorate them.

The students helped Mrs. Mary put the gingerbread in the oven to bake.

And when we returned to get them-----they were missing!!

So we had to look high and low- their footprints led us outside. One of the students spotted them!

Thursday we made reindeer food. Some oatmeal, glitter, and of course a little magic was added in there too!

Before leaving school on the 60% Friday, there was a school-wide sing-a-long. The teachers did a skit of the 12 days of Christmas!

December 6-10

The week started off with a bullying prevention program.

Then we had the December Student of the Month program

Breakfast with Santa was the highlight of the week!

This week we studied about 3D shapes, so we used some 3D shapes to make a Christmas Tree. The students had a wonderful time and were so focused on fulling covering their cones with green icing.
