Fairy Tale Dress Up Day

Today was Fairy Tale Dress up Day in KIndergarten. We drew our portraits and made sparkly crowns for our portraits. We talked about what we would do if we were a king or a queen. In the afternoon we watched the video, Sing a Song of Sixpence. We learned that the cook in Medieval times also entertained the king. He hid things in the food. Mrs. Kitson made us a special cake. When she cut it open it was full of marshmallow birds and candy. At the end of the day we took turns having a sword fight. It was a fairy tale kind of day in Kindergarten.

Sangea

Today we went to the gym. We met a group of drummers. They were called Sangea. We drummed and danced. It was so much fun! We were pretty tired when we finished. In the morning we practiced our letters and sounds. We are practicing blending our letters and reading three letter words. We are bringing home another decodable book. The title is "The Cat" We should put all out books in a special box or place so we can practice reading these books everyday. This is a special part of our reading program. We are also looking for snap words in our emails from Gingy. Our snap words are: the, of, and, a , to, in, is you , that and it. We can look for these words when you are reading books to me at nights. We can also put them on the fridge and practice memorizing them. We are learning about patterns . We are making patterns with two and three elements. We can look for patterns around the house. We had a drumming kind of day in KIndergarten.
