We love recess!

Literacy Centers...Writing on Whiteboards!

One of the many reasons I love my job!  

Edible Maps!

We have been learning all about maps!  On Friday we made edible maps.  We used green frosting for the land, blue frosting for water, dots for homes, and a smartie for the school!  It was a fun way to apply the map skills we learned!

Today was "Ee" Day!

We celebrated the letter E by changing classrooms and completing different E activities! It was fun for the kids to travel to different classrooms and experience different teachers while learning about the letter E!

In Mrs. Edwards' class the students practiced measuring by using a balance. The kids estimated how many cubes each elephant weighed. Then, they got to check! They also participated in an egg relay and enjoyed a snack of Eggos!


In my classroom, we cooked! We made yummy Elephant Ears! We also played a fun game to review sight words!

In Mrs. Urban's classroom the kids heard a story about one of my favorite Dr. Seuss Characters: Horton the Elephant. The kids also practiced fine motor skills by coloring, cutting, and assembling an adorable elephant headband!

Mrs. Wilson played a math game in her classroom. The student rolled a die and put that many peanuts on their elephant game board. The person who filled their board up first won!

It was a very fun day in kindergarten!
