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?
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!!
