Thanksgiving Feast

Wednesday is our Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast!!  We will be eating a traditional Thanksgiving meal in the cafeteria around 1:30pm with all four kindergarten classes.  Thank you to all who have donated items so far!  There are still a couple more things that we could use.  We need juice boxes (just for our class) and a pumpkin pie.  If you are willing to donate either of these items... please let me know!  Thanks so much!

A New Student

Naki is a new student in our classroom.  "He is doing very well.", says Nelson!
We are glad he is in our room!!

Pie in the Face

It was so fun to see Mr. Michaels get pie on his face!!  They used duct tape to keep him still.  We laughed at him!!



Tailgate Party

We had fun at the tailgate party.  We ate lots of food like apples, pretzels, chips, cookies, and had juice.  Thank you to all the moms who came to help us at the tailgate party!!







We played shape Bingo!  It was fun!




Student of the Month

Devin was our latest student of the month!  He is a great role model!  He listens when others are talking, walks in the halls, and helps his friends.  Great job Devin!!

Happy "Halloween" Birthday!

Do you think it would be fun to have a birthday on Halloween??  Well, you could ask Nyre all about it!  Nyre, in our class, turned 6 on Saturday(Halloween)! He LOVES Halloween!  Here is a picture of us celebrating in our room!  As you can see on the graph... now we have two students who are 6 years old in Room 31.

Visitors From Miss McQuown's Class

Miss McQuown's Class learned all about pumpkins.  They knew we were learning about pumpkins too.  Some students came down to our room to read us the pumpkin book they wrote as a class.  They even let us keep a copy, and they gave us our very own pumpkin to keep!  We were very excited!


Thank you Miss McQuown's Class!!

Macaroni Necklaces

We were practicing patterns so we made macaroni necklaces!!  The pasta was all different shapes, sizes, and colors.  We wore our pattern necklaces all day! It was sooooo fun!!


Apple Crunch Day


Here we are crunching our apples at centers on Apple Crunch Day!!


We have been learning big words in kindergarten like syllables, predicting, sorting, estimation, etc.  Our latest 'big word' is symmetry.  Now we know that symmetry means 'the same on both sides'.  Here is a picture of our symmetry paintings.  They were so fun to make!

We learned that some letters are symmetrical.  Here are some that are symmetrical depending what way you 'slice' them!...  A, E, H, I, M, O, S, T, U, V, W, X, Z....  Can you think of more?
