Here is what has been happening in my world this week!Our seeds that we planted have sprouted! It is truly a miracle! This is half of my classes pots and the students are so excited to see the growth each day. We are keeping a short journal of the growth.
I completed my Fun With Frog Pack this week! I love making my own center activities and finally had some time to work on another pack. The pack was so much fun to make and the students loved the activities. Click on the picture to learn more about it and also look at the pictures below that show some of the fun activities!
. The students completed this activity of ordering the sentence and then recording it.
We also played a fun math game. For this game students rolled the fly cube and counted how many flys there were. Then they rolled the frog cube to see how many flies the frog ate. We then subtracted to find the answer. Students recorded the subtraction sentences on a recording sheet.
If you don't have the cubes, I would HIGHLY recommend them. They are so easy to switch out and make it so you can play so many fun games! I use them for sight word games, addition, subtraction, and alphabet games! I also love that they are soft so rolling them makes no noise on a table!

Today my kindergarten class did not have school. Next years kindergarteners had the opportunity to come see the school and do some fun activities. We take them on a bus ride around the neighborhood, read a Gingerbread Man story, have them color and cut out a gingerbread man(YIKES! Those scissor skills were a bit scary!) and of course have gingerbread cookies and milk!
I have also been working on printing out pages for memory books. During the school year we take pictures of the students doing class activities and events (sitting with Santa, meeting a firefighter, dressed as pilgrims, etc.). We then put the pages together for the students to have as a keepsake from kindergarten. They are SOOOOOOOO much work! I always put it off until the last minute to get them all put together. This is my project for the weekend! UGH! I really wish I had a magic wand and they would magically be done!
I hope you have had a great week and are able to enjoy the weekend!
