So Sleepy

My sweet little Antoniel was so sleepy that he fell asleep sitting straight up! This is a really funny video, but it also shows what happens when we don't let our kindergarten friends take a nap.

Kilby's Cool Hair

Everyone LOVED Kilby's new hair style this morning. Dylan got to add a fish to the bucket this morning for saying, "Kilby, I like your new hair."

Our First Bucket Filler Reward

We earned our first Bucket Filler reward today! The kids have worked so hard to be "Bucket Fillers" NOT "Bucket Dippers" We earned our last fish when Addison said, "Good job Tatum" after Tatum helped Ms. Jones turn the pages of the big book. Their reward was working "barefoot" during station time today! :) We are now working on our next "Bucket Filler" reward.

Graphic Organizers in Math

One of the things we do in math is "Question of the Day". We use different types of graphic organizers to collect data and information about all sorts of topics. Today we used a "T" chart or 2 column graph and a one circle Venn Diagram to see how many boys and girls we have in the class. Both organizers showed us the same thing just in a different way. Our graphs show that we have 10 boys and 7 girls. We have more boys than girls and less girls than boys. 17 friends in all answered the question today. :) Enjoy our pictures.

The Little School Bus

The Elephant group completed a sequencing activity. They put the animals in order of how they got on the school bus.
The Giraffe Group did the same activity just in a different format. The kids drew the pictures on this graphic organizer.

The Hippo group discussed different ways to travel and used a web as their graphic organizer.

Ms. Jones enjoyed doing extended activities during stations to go along with our story for the week, The Little School Bus. The kids worked on squencing and one group completed a web on ways to travel. :) Enjoy the completed group work pictures.

Kissing Hands for Special Helpers

The kids enjoying their "Kissing Hand" cookies.
Mr. Jim one of our building helpers. He said the cookie was REALLY good!

Anecia giving our librarian, Mrs. Stephens a cookie.

Our special office staff, Mrs. Key and Mrs. Sterling. We love you!

The first day of school we read a special story called The Kissing Hand. A sweet story about Chester the raccoon and his first day of school. A big thank you to Jennifer Cross for making our "Kissing Hand" cookies. We had so many extra that we decided to share with all the support staff in the building that helped us make it through our first week in kindergarten. We could not have done it without them! :) We put a special thank you sticker on each ziploc bag. This was also a way for us to visit the entire school and meet all of our school helpers! :) When we returned to the classroom we all enjoyed OUR cookie! Enjoy the pictures from our school tour.

King and Queen of the Jungle Tab

Check out our first "Queen's of the Jungle" Ms. Magee and Ms. Jones. (We will have Ms. Jones' info. up soon) Please see the "All About Me" poster sample so you will know how to decorate it for your child. I will pick a King and Queen and send the poster home on Monday. It is due the next Monday. You have 7 days to decorate and add pictures to the poster. ENJOY! Next week Hailey Mooney and Brody Latham will be our first student King and Queen! :) CLICK ON THE KING AND QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE TAB ABOVE! :) This is just a post to make you aware of the tab and show sample of the poster.

Our Special Visitor

Addison reading a book to us! She did a great job!

Mrs. Jennifer sharing with us all the things that Addison can do and all about their family.

Mrs. Jennifer showing Addison her favorite book, Max and Ruby.

Mrs. Jennifer showed us how hard it is for us to zip up a coat if we have socks on our hands. This is how it feels if our hand muscles have a hard time working. Anecia was getting hot! :) LOL!

We enjoyed our visit from Jennifer Cross today, Addison's mom. The students loved listening to Mrs. Jennifer tell us about their family, how Emma Claire is in the 3rd grade but use to be in Mrs. Magee's kindergarten class and how Mr. Chris has no hair! :) LOL! She shared with the class about how we are all different in many ways, but how we are the same in many ways too! She helped reinforce how we are all here to be friends to one another and help each other when we are having trouble doing something! Thank you Mrs. Jennifer for sharing such a special story and such a sweet little girl with us! :)

Parent Orientation 2011

Parent Orientation was a huge success! ALL of my parents attended and they were so polite as Mrs. Nelson shared information with the group and then as I shared all about kindergarten. I am so excited about this school year! I can't wait to get to know each and every child.
