What Are You Thankful For?
The kindergarten friends made turkeys this week. They traced their feet to make the bodies and traced their hands to make the feathers. We read a story about the first Thanksgiving and shared different things we are thankful for in our lives. Here are some of the things they are thankful for:  My house, my family, my little blanket, my little brother, my dolls, my cousin, myself, my baby sister, my Mimi and Papa, cocoa and food.

Math Menu
We have math menu 3-4 times during the week so I can meet with students in small groups to work on just what they need to improve skills.  Students rotate through different work stations when they are not meeting with the teacher.  The stations change each week to keep the work exciting and fresh. At this point in the year the stations include: playing games to review/practice skills, forming letters in sand or using play dough, counting using Try A Tile cards, and doing math games on the computer.

Observation Walk

Our class finished the Five Senses unit last week. They went on an observation walk and recorded what they noticed happening inside and outside the building by using their senses. They also went on an observation walk this week to go along with our new math unit: Patterns and Function. They shared different patterns they observed and recorded their ideas.  They will be working on creating and extending patterns over the next few weeks.
