In math we are talking about 2D and 3D shapes! Last week we had to figure out how to make bigger shapes out of smaller shapes (ex. make a hexagon using triangles, trapezoids,and or diamonds)
                          We have been listening to the 2D shapes song! Click here to listen!

We will be using the 3D shapes song this week. You can click here to listen to it at home!

We also made hexagon ornaments for the Christmas tree on our Kindergarten bulletin board that is in the Cafeteria! We spread out, put on some Christmas music and got started cutting out shapes that we could use to make hexagons.

Thanksgiving Activites!

Here are a few of the Thanksgiving activties we did!
                                                      Our "I am thankful for..." Turkeys

Pilrims! I got the template for the pilgrims from TpT. You can get your own copy here! They turned out really cute and the boys and girls had fun making them!

Write Around The Room... The boys and girls really enjoyed going on a hunt for Thanksgiving words that were hidden around the classroom. They had to find the words and then write them in the correct spot on their paper.

After making our headbands we watched some Native American dancing and did our own little Pow Wow- The funny thing was that we had just talked about rain dances and after our dance it of course started to rain. The boys and girls were convinced it was becuase of the dancing we did!

So I have found so many great ideas on Pinterest! I don't know how I was able to teach before using it!! There are so many great ideas on there like this one. The Thanksgiving Story bracelet. I hope your child was able to tell you the story of the first Thanksgiving by using his/her bracelet as a reminder!

Needless to say we had a blast doing these (and other) Thanksgiving projects. I am really excited for all of the Christmas projects that I have planned for the next two weeks!!!

Sorry It Has Been Awhile!!

I want to apologize for not posting anything lately. Life has been so busy and with Thanksgiving thrown into the mix I have been extra busy. I have lots of pictures and things to post and I promise that I will do it soon. My goal is to do it this weekend. This is always a busy time of year and although I know this is not an excuse, I have just been tired! Ha! Can you believe it!? After teaching all day, I am exhausted! Anyways, we have been having a great time in school and I hope your kiddos have been telling you about all of the fun things we do each day. I am proud of all of them and how hard they work!  As always, thank you for everything you do and please let me know if you would like to help out at our Winter Party on Thursday, 12/15 either by coming in or by sending in supplies and/or snacks. Have a great night! I think I might try to put our Christmas tree up tonight. What are your plans?

Here is a page from our poetry books we have been working on! After reading this poem and completing this page we then made a colors book! The boys and girls really enjoyed making the book! I love seeing their creativity :)

Working hard!

Making Words

Today we used the letters a, t, s, h, r, c to make words! This helped us to see that every word must have a vowel in it!(The vowel is red) We are really working on hearing those vowel sounds when we read and write! We also practiced changing the first letter in words to make new words! (such as changing the c in cat to an h to make hat)
