Toys for Tots

Do you know about Toys for Tots? It’s a great charity that provides happiness and joy to kids on Christmas morning. They cannot do this without our help.

This year, we have set a school donation goal of 100 toys.  

Bring a new, unwrapped toy to school before December 13.  Toys for Tots will distribute these toys to kids in need throughout our community.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE KIDS IN OUR COMMUNITY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

Another Personal Celebration

Dear Kinder Families,

Monday, December 3, was another exciting day for my personal family.  Mr. Bohl and I became grandparents (Oma and Opa) for the THIRD TIME.  

Abigail Joy joined our family at 12:35pm.  A precious 7 lbs 12 oz baby girl.  

Mr. Bohl and I spent the past few days watching over her big sister Madeline.  Monday night, Mr. Bohl and I had the opportunity to snuggle with her.  Momma (my oldest daughter, Hannah) is doing great and will be enjoying some time home before going back to teach her kiddos at school. 

Thank you for indulging me.  It is good to be back with my kinders!

Roll out the welcome mat for….Snuggles!

OH ME!  OH MY!  We have begun our 3rd round of our Kool Kinder activities.  The kinders and Snuggles are super excited because Snuggles is inviting himself to be a guest at your house.  Yippee!

We are again randomly drawing out a name to see who will be the next Kool Kinder.  When chosen, that kinder will be bringing home an extra backpack which belongs to Snuggles.  Inside you will find….Snuggles, his blanket, his PJ’s, his favorite book, crayons, and the sleep over journal.  Have fun including your extra guest in your nightly activities.  Before bedtime, encourage and assist your child in drawing a picture and writing a sentence about that picture inside the sleep over journal.  (They will be explaining this entry to the class on the following day.)

 Fill out the check list paper and return Sunggles and ALL of his belongings on the next school day.

10 Stars = A Reward Day!

As a class family, our fabulous kinders, earned 10 stars.  We earned our stars by walking quietly in the hallway, being ready to learn, and working together to make good choices.  So….

Tomorrow is Stuffed Animal Day!  The kinders may bring a small stuffed animal (it must fit inside their backpack) to school on Tuesday, November 20.  The stuffed animals will come back home at the end of the day.  Way to go, kinders!!

 

Stone Soup Day!

What a fabulous day of fun and learning!!!  We began the day making our Stone Soup, following a recipe we read together.  We put in corn, potatoes, peas, green beans, onions, tomatoes, spices and of course stones! After it cooked for a very long time we ate our delicious soup together.  

    

I am so proud of the kinders who were not sure if they would like the soup but tried it and they loved it.  

    

We found out after a quick survey that the most popular ingredient to eat was….carrots.   Thank you so much for your donation to make our Stone Soup so tasty.

 

The kinders were introduced to a word search.  What a lot of fun looking for words about Stone Soup.
