What's new

We are just beginning to read in Kindergarten and since some of us don't even know all of the alphabet, reading in basic patterns and familiar print is a great idea. This activity was a little tricky at first but with some modelling they were fantastic!!!! I think I may do this again with traffic signs.
Learning to read familiar print- this is easy to do at home too!

Chester is our Racoon friend, he comes to visit us sometimes and we have his cousin in our Library!!!
Here are some pictures of our beautiful "kissing hand" artwork.

Dot Day Festivities


Dot day was here and gone in a flash by boy did we have loads of fun!!!! We dressed up in dots, ate dots, drew, cut, pasted and moulded dots too! Check out some of our fun activities.

We got all twisted up on "dots"

We used "dots" to represent numbers and make pictures



We rolled, cut and flattened our own "dots" out of play dough



We guessed how many "dots" were in the candy jar and we sorted our "dot" treats


We even created patterns


We also created some of our own beautiful "dot art" that will be showcased in our classroom ! Those photos are still to come!

Tomorrow is the BIG day

I am so excited for school to begin tomorrow. I am like a little kid all over again. Here are some great back to school reads that you can find at your local library. If you don't have a library card I suggest you get one! Its a great way to keep your child interested in books while saving some $ too!
