We did it!! We survived ABC BOOTCAMP! And we’re now letter superstars! So how do superstars celebrate? With a fashion show of course!
Yes people, we had an ABC Fashion Show in kindergarten and it was epic fun!
We sent home a paper bag vest with each child. Each bag was labeled with a letter. It just so happens that we have 4 kindergarten classes with a total of 52 students. That meant 2 complete sets of ABC vests!
The ‘staches worked with their families to find pictures that started with their letter. They returned the vests to school so we could walk the runway. I loved the creativity in each vest and loved to hear the positive comments from parents and kids about the project!
While I loved all of the vests, this one won the most creative award. They took a picture of this little stache passed out in the car after school (Mr. Greg is EXHAUSTING people…), in his ocotopus hat n less and included it on his Z vest for ZZZZZZZs! How stinking awesome?!
During the fashion show, the staches walked the runway. And let me just say, RuPaul would be proud. These little ‘staches WORKED!!!! And some of my most reserved staches had the most attitude on the runway. People, it was epic!!!!
Each stache recieved a camouflage dog tag and certificate and a helmet! The helmets came from the Dollar Tree! We also dressed in camouflage for the day!
And of course, I had to get all dressed up!
I’ve had a ton of questions about the effectiveness of ABC BOOTCAMP! Well, the data speaks for itself. Today, we did a letter/sound assessment for all of the letters. Not only did we show tremendous growth, but 11/12 scored 93% or higher! The errors I saw were g/j errors, y/u/w errors which we will focus on in small groups!
This picture shows the growth (this was actually a week ago….) but you can see how much growth we’ve made!
