It’s Saturday. That means it’s time for The Saturday Kindergarten Post! I hope your week with your little monsters was as productive and enjoyable as mine. We worked hard, laughed a lot, learned a lot and Mr. Greg even had time to most of his report card assessments! I can’t believe it’s already time for report cards. Time flies when you’re having fun!
This week we did not focus on the letter I. Do your student’s struggle with the short I sound? It makes me crazy. They either say the short A sound or the short E sound. It’s like nails on a chalkboard after a while. I also here “itch” when I ask for the sound I makes because we use Dr. Jeans “Alphardy” song every morning and the song says I for itch. So I says itch. Appropriate when you consider there was a bed bug issue in the classroom next door! You’re scratching now aren’t ya!?! I says itch. We told ya so!
This week learned all about apples! We learned about the life cycle of apples, we learned about orchards, and all the foods we could make from apples and we learned the parts of an apple. Did you know that the inside of the apple is called “flush?” They mean flesh, but my monsters said flush. And did you know that apples are “gushy?” Juicy. Gushy. I like gushy better than juicy! To kick off our apple adventure, we made a KWL chart! They did very well with the chart. Getting them to generate questions was challenging, but we were able to persevere and come up with some great questions. And guess what? I totally forgot to take a picture of the chart. But take my word for it, we rocked the KWL chart. Have you met my class?? Those little monsters are AMAZING! We made a stained glass apple and even made apple prints! Can I just say how messy apple prints are??? It’s a good thing I have my handy dandy manly apron or I would have been in trouble with the fiancee’ for ruining my “good school clothes!” But my motto is: messy=fun and learning!
Next week we will celebrate Read Me Week and Read For The Record Day. One of our activities is a door decorating contest. Every classroom decorates their door according to our theme. Our theme this year is “Gettin Buggy With Books!” Isn’t that a great theme? I wonder who thought of such a great theme….hmmmm Our door (I am not unveiling it until Monday so you have to come back Monday to see our awesomeness!) involves writing (gotta meet standards. We can decorate and create while still meeting standards. Mr. Greg is so smart…it’s such a shame I don’t work to educate my children!) Friday we spent all afternoon working on our door!
