Having fun learning our numbers!

We had so much fun as we were practicing writing our numbers!  Of course we had to use our apples to get messy with.  We will make our pictures into beautiful fall leaves!

As we are mastering out letter sounds in Kindergarten we know it is hardest to learn the vowels! We have found a great and catchy song vowel bat!! The students love it and would love for you to play it at home!:) Check it out at the link below.

How Full is your bucket?


On Tuesday, Mrs. Walsh came in and read How Full is Your Bucket by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer. The story is about a boy named Felix who learns how one's own interactions with others can have a profound effect on one's own happiness and that of others.  We use the words from the book to help let others know how we feel.  We try very had to fill each others' buckets every day and in turn our bucket gets filled too!  Thank you, Mrs. Walsh for reading this book to us! Listen to the story above.

Building reading stamina!

Both classes are doing such a fabulous job building reading stamina during our Daily 5 time! Our goal is to get to 20 minutes! After 20 minutes Mrs. Walsh will bring her book into our classroom and reads with us! We are so excited:).

Our favorite things...

Getting in the swing of school!

Our hallway is so bright and colorful! We did our first monthly writing in August and also made school buses last week to fit with our story "The Little School Bus!" The students followed multi-step directions, and did such a fantastic job with their buses! Enjoy!

We made it through our first week!

Woo hoo! We had an awesome first week! We are pretty tired (especially the teachers!) But what a great time we had. Did your children tell you about our tour through the school looking for Pete the Cat? We didn't find him but we sure had fun!
