We predicted where we would be if we took 100 steps. Then, the kiddos traced their foot, took 100 steps and taped their foot on the wall where they landed. We found out that some people predicted correctly and others were way off. It was so fun! We will finish this activity with two more groups this next week!

Christmas Break

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Christmas! I enjoyed getting to spend time with lots of family! Christmas Break is winding down and I am very excited to see my sweethearts soon. Don’t forget to have your child complete their Winter Break Homework Challenge in order to get a prize when we return! Also, please return all readers that were sent home in their book bag on Monday! I appreciate you all so much! Enjoy these last 4 days off! See you soon!

The kiddos were beyond excited when Santa came to visit our school!

 

Using magnetic shapes to create new shapes. This is a tough skill for kindergarten. We learned that if you put 2 squares together, it forms a rectangle and two triangles can make a diamond/rhombus.

Twinning! The girls get SO excited when they are dressed the same as one of their friends! They always ask me to take a picture! I LOVE IT!

sight word practice

On Pajama Day, we all watched The Polar Express and drank yummy hot chocolate from the crockpot! It was DELICIOUS if I say so myself!

The kiddos were SO THRILLED when we came back from lunch and noticed that Santa had left them all a sweet, little note and a bell necklace! I love seeing the excitement through their eyes! Being a kindergarten teacher truly is so, very special.

I hope you all had a very Happy Holiday!
