Keeping Up with the Kindergarteners!

We have had great seven days.  I am constantly amazed at the amount of growth they show from Day 1 to Day 7!  (and on:) We have been busy, busy, busy at school!  In addition to talking about routines and rules, we have been learning about math time and what good readers and writers do.  Here are a few snapshots of our first 7 days of Kindergarten!

Spring Has Sprung!

Kind of….we have seen a few nice days, but nothing to write home about:(  However, we DID earn a painting party for earning 10 more class punches on our PBIS Card:)  This worked out perfectly, because we were able to paint the beautiful spring scenes from our Breakthrough Book of the Week, Colors of the World!  We have some major mini Monet’s on our hands:)

Hot Chocolate Party!

We were supposed to have our hot chocolate party on the Thursday before Winter Break…but then we got 13 inches of snow and had to reschedule:)  So, today, I brought my Keurig in and some Swiss Miss K-Cups! The kiddos WERE AMAZED at how hot the water got.  I’m not going to lie, I too, am amazed by the machine:)  We  put marshmallows in the cocoa and watched some Dino Train.  It was a great day and well deserved for being safe, respectful, responsible, and caring!

Cole is using the marshmallows to bring down the temperature:)

Flashlight Party!

Our class earned another party for being safe, respectful, responsible, and caring at school!  We chose to celebrate by wearing pajamas and having a flashlight reading party!  Here are some photos from our party!
