Our Week in Pictures

We have had a busy start to week #2 of kindergarten! The class is doing a fantastic job, and is really starting to get the routines down. I wanted to share some pictures with you. If you click on the picture, it should pull up a slideshow to look at all of them.

Monday, we had our first assembly. Barney Sue came to talk to us about bus safety.

Also on Monday, we had our first day with inside recess. If its raining or cold, we will have recess in our classroom. The choices on Monday were legos, big blocks at carpet, and smaller blocks and math manipulatives at tables. The kids were awesome - one of the other teachers even told me how fabulous they were!

During Social Studies this week, we are learning the Pledge of Allegiance. We have read a book explaining the meaning of the pledge and worked on learning the colors of our flag. When your child knows the pledge, they get to sign our poster that says "We know the Pledge of Allegiance."

One of our big focuses right now is handwriting. We are writing letters and numbers. Today, we worked on C and c. We used individual white boards at our seats, and the kids seemed to enjoy it!

 I have one more thing that I'm so excited to share with you today! We read our first decodable book today! Our sight words this week are I and am. We read a simple book called "I Am." Sorry my voice is so loud - your kids probably didn't need me!

We are continuing to work on letter and number recognition, the Pledge of Allegiance, and we are talking about characters.
