Spider Party


We finished our Eric Carle Author's Study reading The Very Busy Spider and celebrated with a spider party!  We were very busy spiders this afternoon learning and crafting about spiders!  I think they make very cute spiders!

Pumpkin Time

We had a blast at the farm!  We had a tractor ride, chose a pumpkin, and figured our way through a corn maze.

I Am Special


Our new unit, "I Am Special"  focuses on understanding and appreciating that we are alike and different from other people in many different ways.  In Kindergarten we are celebrating our unique ways and asking kids what they are good at.

"I am special, I'm a really good painter!"

Building with Pumpkins

Kids were excited to build with toothpick and pumpkins.  The challenge was to design a structure using candy pumpkins and toothpicks.  Kids made rafts, play structures, boats and buildings!

Choice time is a favorite time in Kindergarten!  The girls to the left are on a bus with their babies.  Pretend play is an important part of developing social skills
















The Listening Center is a favorite at Choice Time.  Kids are very curious about the old fashioned tape deck- hey it works!











"I'm a Writer!"  
  

Eric Carle Author's Study

We have been busy studying books written and illustrated by Eric Carle!  Kids have really grasped an understanding of authors and illustrators throughout this unit.  They were very proud of their Eric Carle inspired collage art work.

Busy Kinders

Wow!  We've had a great start to our school year!  My apologies for not getting a post done sooner, but I have several beautiful photos to share with you on our blog.  This first post may look familiar as Kindergartners shared it with families via a QR code at our Open House.  Enjoy!
