We had so much fun sharing our character costumes from our favorite books. We had everyone from Pete the Cat to Fancy Nancy (three of them). Thank you for your help with this fun day!
We celebrated our 100th Day of Kindergarten with lots of activities…doing 100 exercises, reading 100 books, making 100th day hats, sharing our 100 items for Show and Tell, creating a booklet of 100 activities, and writing a class book about spending $100!!
Today we learned about presidents! We focused on George Washington and made these fabulous hats! We also created a class book called, "If I were President...". We learned many facts about the presidency and completed a book with these interesting facts. It is in your child's backpack today. Check out the book to see who your child predicted the next president will be! (Hilary got the most votes, which may or may not be directly related to the number of girls in our class!) :) I hope your child can share some facts about George Washington and tell you about the book we created. The class book will be sent home soon with each student!
Our class enjoyed a fun day in the snow with Mr. Nelson last month! We hope to get out there again before the winter is over.
We visited the Stages Theater and saw a fabulous production of Bear Snores On! It was a wonderful show. We have been studying the other bear books by Karma Wilson, and we have noticed the books always have a "comeback line". Ask your kindergartner to explain a comeback line to you! We also noticed that Bear will many times switch roles with his friends at the end of the book. We were excited to hear the comeback line and see the friends switch during the play, too! Our class was very respectful during the play. Great work, kindergartners! A huge THANK YOU to all the chaperones...we couldn't do these fun activities without you!
Mrs. Elsen (a fabulous 3rd grade teacher at Northview) and I decided to partner up and be buddy classrooms! We met for the first time on Wednesday. The kindergartners picked out their BEST story from Writer's Workshop and read it to their 3rd grade friend. We will be meeting with these friends throughout the rest of the year!
