Day 2 , Day 3 & Day 4 have been filled with fun and learning! Look at what we did.
We enjoyed meeting new friends and working hard to make good choices. We read David goes to School to help us learn about some school rules.
Then we sorted pictures to show green (good) choices and red (not good) choices. We also learned what our 5 class rules are. The kinders are already showing that they can make smart choices so that they can soar in their learning.
COOL TOOLS: The kinders were introduced to our school tool box. This box contains some very “cool tools”. These tools and lessons are designed to teach us how to be a good friend and how to handle different situations.
On Tuesdsay we read Rainbow Fish and learned that our words matter. We learned that we need to be like an ERASER and forgive ourselves for mistakes that we make and learn from them. We also need to forgive others too who may say or do hurtful things to us. We colored a picture of a rainbow fish…and even got a shimmery and shiny scale to put on it!
On Wednesdsay we read Chrysanthemum and learned that words spoken hurt other’s feelings and are impossible to take back, like toothpaste. We learned that we are all special and unique and then “brushed” away hurtful words with real toothpaste.
On Thursday we read Ish and were reminded again that our words matter. The FUZZY DICE remind us to say nice words or show nice actions toward others. We passed the fuzzy dice to our neighbor and gave them a nice compliment to practice.
ROUTINES: We read and re-read Lining up and Walking in the Hallway. This book helps us remember the rules for how to walk in the hallway. The kinders are doing an AWESOME job!!! Hooray!!
We have many fantastic tools that we use at school! This week, the kinders were introduced to how to use crayons, pencils, scissors, glue sticks, markers and play dough at school. Congratulations to all kinders!
After listening to Pete the Cat Rocking in my School Shoes again. we made our own Pete the Cat shoes. We practiced our cutting skills and our gluing skills. We even got to put stickers on the shoes and draw shoelaces. The kinders were so excited to take them to show you.
The kinders also used 2 new tools to practice writing numbers 0 and 1. Chalkboards and chalk! Using these tools was very fun!
ABC BOOT CAMP: After a summer of fun, kinders may need a refresher course in identifying letters and their sounds. Welcome to ABC Boot Camp! Each day we will be focusing on an alphabet letter and their sound. This week it was all about letters A,B,C.
INTRODUCTIONS: I am SO happy to introduce three special people who will be part of our classroom family this year.
Mrs. Rossback who will be in our classroom in the morning.
Mrs. Sremba (Mrs. S.) who will be in our classroom in the afternoon.
Mrs. Rose who will be with the kinders on the playground during lunch recess and in the lunch room.
At the end of each day, our awesome 5th grade buddies from Mrs. Walenta’s class help the kinders get on their bus to go home. We look forward to seeing them. They are the BEST!! I will take some pictures next week.
I have to say that I have been blessed with the most AWESOME group of kinders! They are incredible!!! Here are a few pictures of inside and outside playtime.
