Family Traditions Sharing

The kids have done a wonderful job sharing about their family traditions! It was really special for each child to have a chance to share, and for the rest of us to get to know each other on a deeper level. Thank you for your help preparing your child at home! I compiled all the family traditions forms into a class book and made a copy for each child to take home. Hope you enjoy reading it!

Gummy Bear Party

Today we celebrated our great behavior with a gummy bear party! You may be wondering…”why gummy bears?!” You may also be wondering, “what does one do at a gummy bear party?!!?” I got the idea for the party because the kids love dancing to the gummy bear song!

Here is what we did…

I left a little clue on the kids tables to help them figure out the theme of the party.

We started the day with a 5 lb bag of gummy bears! The kids enjoyed feeling how heavy it was.

Don’t worry- we still have 3 pounds left for another day. We did not eat 5 pounds of gummy bears in one day!

We started by setting up a gummy bear experiment. We hypothesized and checked our results later in the day to see what happened.

We transformed ourselves into gummy bears by making hats!

We danced the gummy bear dance multiple times!

We made bear origami…We went step by step.

We sorted and graphed gummy bears to round out the gummy bear experience with a little math.

What a fun and silly day!

Makers Gonna Make

Kindergartners are doers, singers, engineers, scientists, artists, and makers. These little makers used a variety of building and craft materials to create. They could use materials of their choice and make whatever the chose. We had beautiful paintings, buildings, rocket ships, whales, treasure boxes, jelly fish, towers and much more. It was so fun to watch the makers at work!

Fall Party Fun

We had a wonderful fall party! Thank you so much to our room parents Melissa, Julia, and Lesley for organizing the party and to all the parents who were able to attend or send supplies!

We played pumpkin bowling and ate lots of yummy treats! The room was decorated beautifully and the kids got lots of goodies to take home!

Here are a few pictures of the fun!

Pumpkin Decorating

We had a fun, creative, and messy morning decorating our pumpkins! Thank you to everyone who sent in craft supplies and volunteered in the classroom- you made the day awesome!

Mrs. Edgar’s class joined us to decorate their pumpkins too. It was fun to have special guests visit us too!
