Can I just say I love my body?? Yesterday I had that cold feeling in my fingers and toes that means I am getting sick. And by last night my throat HURT so bad. I think I drank 6 gallons of Coke and Pepsi and Orange crush. I told ya, I love my drinks and the cold felt so good on my throat. I woke up this morning and feel 100%! My immune system is amazing. We have this very special bond. I like him and he likes me.
It’s time for my regular Saturday round-up of our weekly projects, lessons, success and chaotic but organized fun! I asked on my blog if anyone could suggest a great name for my regular Saturday round up and there were a lot of great suggestions, but I like the one I picked. Inspired by The Saturday Evening Post….this is The Saturday Kindergarten Post! Thank you Rhea for the idea! Check out her blog over at Mrs. Zanti’s Pre-K Pad! And I created by own little button/graphic today. Thoughts? I was trying for the newspaper look…maybe someone with much more talent than me can make it look better!
The biggest happening this week was that we got a new teacher!! My class size is down to 17! OMG can I just tell you that Thursday and Friday were spectacular! My room seems empty and we’re not all over each other. My line no longer stretches the length of the green mile and it’s so much more quiet. I felt like we accomplished more Thursday and Friday than we have all year. I even did some small group work Thursday and Friday! These kids better hang on, because we’re about to rock the Kindergarten world!
This week we started with our letter and sounds. This week is M so a lot of our activities are focused on the letter M. We made M with marshmallows, we did picture sorts, and we learned how to write the letter M! We read If You Give A Moose A Muffin and made muffin hats and we did a moose craftivity. We created a flow map (Thinking Maps!) of the story and we did a predictable chart about what we would give a moose! In math we counted muffins and made our own touch math posters using beans!
