The Art Center

October 8, 2018

We usually have one featured painting of the week that gets to be displayed in the fancy frame on the back wall.  This week it is a mystery artist– because there is no name on it.

Could it be yours?

Round and Round the Old Oak Tree

October 7, 2018

When we hold hands and circle around the rug while singing, we imagine that we are going around students who are pretending to be a tree.  When the circle stops, we raise our hands and the “trees” can go through all of the “windows” that our hands make.  It’s a classic Kindergarten song-game.

We sang this song together as we folded and cut paper, and surprise!  The papers looked just like our friends holding hands.

See if you can point and sing the song that is on the back of this scissors-and-glue project.

Maybe your student can teach you!

Our Stuffed Animals

September 12, 2018

We are finding out so much as we get to know each other.

We read a book about a boy who is reluctant to take his bear to a sleepover, and the discussion turned to our own stuffed animals.

Here is the breakdown, and although a few other types of animals are represented in the rabbit category my own stuffed animal is a rabbit.

School Menus

September 5, 2018

Have a look to the links to the right– I have posted a link to our school breakfast and lunch menus.

If you are curious about what the “GNG” stands for, it’s “grab and go,” or a bag breakfast.

Welcome to Room 128

September 5, 2018

It has been a busy two days!

I will post some pictures of what our days are like pretty soon– we just need to have the media release forms all collected.

But in the meantime, ask your students what their favorite read-aloud has been.  My guess is that it is Caps for Sale.  That’s my favorite too.

Remember to check the blue folder every evening, and if you ever have any questions, a note in there is a good way to make sure that I can answer it thoughtfully when I get a little break in the day.

Also ask your student about favorite song games.  My favorite is Oats, Peas Beans.

See you tomorrow!

If you work on either of these (or the ST Math itself), let me know.  I’d love to keep track of how you are doing!

Move-a-thon

May 20, 2018

We sure had a lot of fun on the field on Friday!

Lots of exercise and fresh air was enjoyed by all.

The Human Body

March 21, 2018

We have been learning about our organs– where they are and what they do.  I’m sure that you have heard the song that helps us remember.  We made some body organ vests and took a trip around to the pre-school classrooms to teach them a thing or two.
