Today we made fried potatoes. We ate the potatoes with our homemade ketchup. We continue to practice learning our letter sounds. We are learning our sounds by studying our friends' names. We clap our names, listen for beginning sound and look at the shapes of the letters. We like to make up stories with the letter we are learning. Today our letter was J. We listened to the story, Room on the Broom. We put the story in the correct sequence. I can practice retelling the stories you read to me at bedtime. We played a silly spider dice game and made our own Room on the Broom stories. It was a witchy kind of day in Kindergarten.
Today we had so much fun! We went into the forest and went on a scavenger hunt. The junior high kids were very nice! It was a Firebird Day in Kindergarten!
Today we cleaned up the garden. We picked lots of potatoes We all worked together to get the garden ready for next year. In the morning Mrs. Kitson read us the book, 10 for Dinner. We looked at different ways to make a 10 number story. We made our own number story in our notebooks. We reviewed our letter sounds. We practice making the right movement with our mouths and tongues. Mrs. Kitson told us a funny ghost story. You can make stories up with us at home. Her story had lots of words that started with the letter G. We made our own Halloween books. We copied words and drew pictures. We told our own stories and the story making table. We had lots of fun playing in The Halloween House. It was a fun day in Kindergarten
Today we learned about Bus Safety. We met a special ELK. Ask me what his name was. We practiced going out the back of the bus. Ask me what the safety rules are. The house center is turning in to a Halloween House. We are excited for Halloween. We will be having a small Halloween party on October 27th from 10:00 11:15. Our parents are welcome to come and work at a center if they would like. Mrs. Kitson will be sending out an email about the party. We had a fun day in Kindergarten.
Today we went on a nature walk. One of our friends brought in a big leaf he found camping. Mrs. Kitson told us it was a plant called Cow Parsnip. We learned that it was named cow parsnip because it kind of smells like a cow. We looked for the plant in our forest and we found it. We looked at all the different plants in the forest. We are practicing our sounds. We are learning about the letters in our names and listening for beginning, middle and end sounds. We look at the shape and size of the letters. We like to listen to The Better Alphabet Song. We had lots of fun playing at centers. We love playing in the water table, painting and building with the building materials. We had a fun day in Kindergarten.
We like looking closely at nature. We take time in the morning to share what we found in nature. If your child has something to share they can bring it to school. We practiced our letter sounds. We have covered the letters: M,N,T,S,A,L,R, and B. While you are reading to your child you could ask them to identify these letters and practice the sounds. You can find many ideas on my website under resources.
