Another day off….CRAZY?!?!

WOW, an ICE STORM today! ! I am missing spending time with your kinders and cannot wait to get back into a consistent routine with them! 

We will move our 100th day celebration to tomorrow, Friday, February 8. Please send in 100 collections with your kinder tomorrow for our 100th day show & tell. Thank you for your flexibility!  Here is the Day 100 collection note again if you need more details.

 

Also, Mrs. Reagan has another “Snow Day Challenge” going today, meaning your kinder could win a gift card for learning on either Moby Max or RAZ-kids today! Check out Mrs. Reagan’s blog post by following this link

Here are a few more ideas if you are looking for a challenge for your kinder today:

  • Make an indoor fort.
  • Play an inside game of snowball toss with socks.  Throwing socks into bowls or buckets, points for different distances.
  • Create a piece of artwork inspired by the ice.
  • Cuddle up and watch a movie.
  • Play a game of treasure hunt.  Hide an object for your child and create a treasure hunt for them to find it, or play hot and cold for them to locate the treasure.

Here’s to hoping that this is our LAST SNOW/ICE DAY! 🤞Stay safe if driving!

Kinders LOVE reading…at home!

Another snow day for Thursday 1/31 is planned.  Find some new creative ways/places to read books to keep the excitement alive.  Some suggestions might be….

*making a fort from blankets to crawl into,

*snuggling in bed in the middle of the day under a pile of blankets,

*rearranging the books on your bookshelf, reading your favorite ones along the way,

*reading to younger siblings or stuffed animals

*trading some books with neighbors to read (and then trading back) 🙂

Here are some pictures of kinders who are having fun reading on these snowy days.  You are welcome to send pictures tomorrow if you are up to the challenge! 🙂

 

A few other suggestions to keep your kinder occupied might be…

*write a small moment story about something you did at home,

*decide and count out your 100 collection for Day 100 (on Feb 7),

*write your name on your valentine cards for your friends

*practice writing your full (first and last name) in a fun way,

*tell & solve addition and subtraction stories,

*make some yummy treat with your parent while practicing math & reading skills,

Above all….stay safe, stay warm!  Mrs. Bohl

A Snow Day Math Game

We are busy practicing using 5-groups and 10-groups to make numbers, showing teen numbers as a ten and extra ones and matching partners and total for teen numbers.(10+3 is a match for 13).

The kinders learned a math game called UNKNOWN PARTNER.  This game focuses on identifying sets of partners for numbers.  For example, there are 7 cubes by number 7.  One kinder places the break apart stick (popsicle stick) between the cubes and removes some cubes from a side while the other kinder has their eyes closed.  The kinder opens their eyes and needs to tell what partner of 7 was taken away. 4 + ? = 7  Then together they use the number tiles to create the number equation.  4+3=7

You can play this game at home using lego pieces, Cheerios, Barbie shoes, etc. A pencil works great as a break-part stick too. Start with a small number and work your way up to 10.  A fabulous way to learn and have fun at home….with your kinder being the teacher!

More math learning yet to come this week before we take our next unit test this upcoming week.  Take time on this snowy day and during the weekend to play this fun math game. 

Snow Day CHALLENGE!

Happy first snow day of 2019! I hope your kinder has a day full of fun, rest, and some learning, too!

Mrs. Reagan posted a blog about our school’s snow day learning challenge, and I want to pass it along to you! If your child reads on RAZ kids for at least 30 minutes today, they are in the running for a gift card from Mrs. Reagan. Log in through the CLEVER app (the link for this is on the right hand side of this blog) and select RAZ kids! 


Also, here is Mrs. Bohl’s SNOW DAY CHALLENGE for today, January 25, 2019:

I challenge your kinder to read 3 books today! Email me a picture of your kinder “snuggled up with a good book,” and they will earn a little prize from me on Monday. (I’m planning to use these pictures for a future classroom picture wall!) My email is kbohl@hpseagles.net. 


Stay warm, drive safely if you need to travel, and have a wonderful snow day!  Mrs. Bohl

Snow Day Fun!

Snow days are meant for unplanned fun with family.  Here are a few pictures of our kinders enjoying time with their family today.  Sleep well tonight…..it is a school day tomorrow.  And….

Don’t forget that tomorrow night is our Christmas Music Program at Harbor Ministries, (formerly known as Fair Haven Church) 2900 Baldwin Street, Hudsonville.  Kinders should arrive by 6:15pm.  They are the first class to preform so they will be walking on stage by 6:28pm. There have been some questions regarding the night so I thought I would address them. 1.  Tickets are not required.  2. Grandparents and younger siblings are welcome to attend the program.   3. There is not a dress code but many kinders choose to dress in holiday or “Sunday best” attire but this is optional.
