Ten Apples Up On Top

Today we read a classic Dr. Seuss book, Ten Apples Up On Top, about some wild and crazy animals who compete with each other to see who can balance the most apples on their heads!  We used this book as a springboard to practice our counting skills.  We are learning the “Count and Drag” counting strategy to help us organize our count and make sure we are only counting each object one time.  I think we did a pretty good job of balancing our apples, what do you think?

First Days of Kindergarten

We had a FANTASTIC first week of kindergarten as we made new friends, learned new songs, and explored some of the fun things in our classroom.  We played with puppets, made block castles, took turns in the home living center, and practiced using glue, scissors, and school supplies!  We are learning how to be kind, share, and make good choices, but most importantly, we are learning to LOVE SCHOOL!! Enjoy the pics!!

We LOVE flexible seating!  Having a choice in where we sit helps us be responsible!

We are learning how to play with our classroom manipulatives appropriately and how to share with our new friends.

Layla Westyn’s mommy made us a fun first day of school treat!  Apple cupcakes!

We love centers and playing with our friends!

Kindergarten is fun but EXHAUSTING!!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year

Here we are at the start of a brand new school year!  August brings so much excitement and anticipation.  I love August because everything is so “new”…new school supplies, new lunchboxes, new tennis shoes,  new friends, new experiences in store.  Many of you might be dropping off your baby at school for the first time…talk about a “new” emotion!  I am thrilled to have each and every one of your sweet babies in my classroom this year, and my goal is to make this transition to “big school” as smooth as possible.  I know many of you wish to have a peek into your child’s kindergarten day and the purpose of my blog is to give you just that.  Check back often as I use this blog to share the many fun things we do in kindergarten with you!  Click on the “About Mrs. Williams” page to learn more about me and my family.  I can’t wait to meet all of you at Meet the Teacher.  Until then, here is your first “sneak peek” of our “flexible seating” based classroom!  Enjoy!!
