We have a new student in our classroom and her name is Taylor.  She joined us right before lunch and we are glad she did because we are talking about friends this week and now we have a new friend.  Yea!

I took some pictures of our math stations so you could see what we are working on during math.
My kinders love making designs with pattern blocks.

Lookin' good!


The kinders can't wait to make numbers with play dough.

I am an expert at number writing with dry erase markers!

Me too!

Look at us sort bears...

and more bears...

and links!

Counting the squares are fun too!

More squares to count...

and linking cubes to count.

Ask your kinder which math station they like the best--better yet, leave a comment and let us know!

What do we do in the classroom?

I thought you might like to see pictures of what we are doing in the classroom.  We begin our day with a smile and a "good morning" welcome to each other.  The students start with centers--it may look like "playing", but they are problem solving and learning how to work together in a group.

This is the kitchen area and is very popular.  The students are sharing their supplies and have decided that they are creating a restaurant.

I will be posting more pictures of what our day looks like, so make sure that you check back to see what we are up to!

We have had another great week in kindergarten and I was glad to see my smiling kinders on Tuesday!  I was a little worried because we had three days off, but everyone was ready to get back to work.  My students are becoming experts at math stations, so I will begin literacy stations next week--should be easy peasy lemon squeezy!  Love it.  The behavior chart is working nicely and my kinders are helping each other and minding their manners so they can move on up!  My kinders are learning the letters of the alphabet and WORDS!! Can you believe it--words!  We are putting our star of the day names on the word wall and our new words are red and me.  They are so smart!  I will be adding pictures to our shutterfly class webpage.  Please click the link on the right and check out the pictures and the events on the calendar.
