Welcome to KINDERGARTEN!!

Are you visiting my blog because you are going to be in my classroom this fall? HOORAY and WELCOME to Kindergarten!  

Can you believe it?  In a couple of months you will be riding the bus to school and having fun learning new things while playing with friends. I am so excited that you will be part of my kinder family. You can find out some fun facts about me when you click on MEET MRS. BOHL at the top of our blog page.  Be sure to explore all of the pages, posts, and links as well.

Please take a few moments and subscribe to our classroom blog.  See the widget on the side bar.  By subscribing (filling in your e-mail address in the subscribe rectangle box located on the upper right-hand column) you will be alerted to new postings so that you will know immediately what is happening in Kindergarten. Our class blog will be the site for information about school supplies, special events, pictures, curriculum, assessments, and so much more. We have so much fun in kindergarten, we don’t want anyone to miss one minute of the action.

Be sure to check our blog the first of July to find out what supplies you will need at the start of kindergarten. I will post information about our Kindergarten Open House in late August. Be sure to check our blog periodically throughout the summer for updates. Feel free to contact me through email (kbohl@hpseagles.net) if you have any questions, concerns or if you just want to say “HI”. 

I will be posting some summer dates for PLAYDATES ON THE PLAYGROUND very soon.  This is a fabulous time to meet new friends that will be in our classroom this coming year by playing on our kindergarten playground.  Attending is totally optional.

For now….enjoy summer by going on vacation with your family, playing outside with friends, reading books from the library, going swimming in a pool, building sand castles at the beach, riding your bike or whatever else you can think of that is fun to do.  

I can’t wait to meet you!   Mrs. Bohl

End of the Year Work

The end of the year is fast approaching and can often bring LOTS of anxiety in children.  My goal  has been to help the kinders feel proud of their accomplishments this year and celebrate our time together.  So while we have been having enjoying some fun activities during our last days together, the focus is on how much we have grown.  This week I have incorporated a book that explains what it is going on in our classroom or building during these last weeks of school.  So far we have read the following books about….

SUMMER LEARNING – Designed to explain how the kinders can keep their brains active and continue learning during the summer.   In your kinder’s folder today there was a Summer packet. This packet contains literacy, writing and math activities that your kinder can work on over the summer. Happy Learning!!

CLASSROOM CLEANUP— Designed to help the kinders be part of getting the classroom ready for a new batch of kinders next year.  The booklet helps to explain how the classroom (and our building) starts to look different.  Today we worked as a class family to organize and resort our book library.  (Sorry, I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of the how well the kinders did working/cleaning/sorting.  They were AMAZING!) . We will spend a little bit of time cleaning up other areas tomorrow.

Field Trip Memories

We had so much fun learning and observing living and non-living things during our class trip to Hemlock Crossing Nature Center this week.  We observed birds flying and chirping, saw a beaver lodge and watched tadpoles and water beetles swimming.  We saw plant life and creatures in meadows and wetlands. Our five senses were very busy all morning long.  

Thank you, thank you to Mr. Kniceley, Mrs. Scholten, Mrs. Daley, Mrs. Shaffer, Mrs. Parrish and Mrs. Kinsman for joining us in learning. I am so glad that many other parents and grandparents were able to join us for a picnic lunch at Hager Park.  What a fun day…even though it was a bit cold.

Enjoy the video that showcases our memories.
