Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hi to all my new kinder kids and families! I am so excited for a new year in kindergarten. It's going to be great and you are going to have so much fun! We will  be learning about letters and numbers, playing outside, dancing, painting, writing and reading, and much, much more!

I am so glad you were to able to visit our classroom blog. I update it throughout the year with pictures and information about what we have been doing in our room. Take a look around and click on the tabs at the top. Our classroom is getting a brad new air conditioner so we will be nice and cool on these hot days. Since it's still under construction for a few more days, I won't be able to post new pictures of our classroom, but will do so as soon as it's ready. Not to worry though,  our room will be beautiful and ready with your name on your very own seat and cubby before I get to meet you all at meet your teacher day.

Our meet your teacher day Monday August 11th from 11:00-12:00.  Parents feel free to bring your child's supplies that day.  Our parent orientation is just for parents and is August 10th 2:00 for English and 4:00 for Spanish. I can't wait to see you all!

Can't believe it's almost over!



      Gosh! Here we are almost to the end of this year in kindergarten! I can't believe it! Seems like a month ago I was meeting and just starting to fall in love with 18 beautiful, sweet, smart, smiling kiddos! Our time is just about over and I will be sending these taller, smarter, sweeter "big" kids on to first grade. Wow! Time flies when you are having fun!

      As you may know, with the end of the year, comes lots of paper work and activities. Please be checking your child's folder for important papers and dates! Here are a few things that will be coming our way very soon!

April 29- Field Trip to the B-ham zoo. As long as the weather holds out.

May 13- We will get to visit the first grade school. This little trip will help show the kids the new school they will be going to next year and get them use to the idea of going to a new school. We will get to tour the first grade rooms, the gym, lunchroom and library. We will also meet the principal.

May 13- This is the big event! We will graduate kindergarten!!!! It will be at the fine arts center. Be there early for good seats! It is precious!!!

Also, there are special days just for our class that I will be letting you know about soon.

I always like to leave with just a few pics of what we have been up to at school since the last time I posted. :) Check us out!

Up, Up and away on transportation day!
Yeah! I will do anything for my kids! :)

During all this winter weather, we were able to celebrate the 100th day of kindergarten! We are all 100 days smarter! We celebrated the 100th day by counting to 100 in many ways, working on 100 day center activities, preforming 100 different exercises, and making hats to cap off this special day!

Check us out!

Sorry for the little break! :) We have been so busy learning so many new things, taking field trips, celebrating and most recently getting excited about the big man in red coming!

Here are a few things we have been learning about in our room:

* Most all of us know our letters and letter sounds.
*If you haven't noticed yet, we are starting to read little words all by ourselves!
* We have learned our numbers 0-10, started learning how to add to 10, we can count by 10s, and count to 20 without help (some days we can make is further).
*We all know our birthdays!
* We have learned how to draw a story and write a sentence about our story!
*We know words like main idea, characters, compare and contrast, and adjective in reading.
*We know math words like addition, ten frame, number words, and shape words.
*We have learned how to be a peacemaker with our friends and I am proud to say that almost everyday all my friends are on green or purple!


As you can see, we have been super busy and learning lots! I have heard from a lot of my parents that you are amazed at what your baby is learning! I have added some pictures from our field trip to the pumpkin patch and some things we have been doing here at BSLK. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving break! I am so thankful God has given me a job I love! I am also thankful to all of you for sharing your babies with me everyday! They are so special! Thank you!

We have been having so much fun in kindergarten! Here is a look at some of the AWESOME things that are going on at BSLK!




We read Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom and celebrated all our letters. Since the story was all about a coconut tree, we got to taste coconut and crack a REAL coconut!


We also go a visit from Dr. Landers this week! She read us a story about Baby Boo, Boo Pumpkins. They all got boo boos because they weren't taking turns. Dr. Landers delivered us a brand new baby pumpkin for us to take care of in our room. Guess what.... it's a GIRL! We named her Julie Flower. :)


We have spent the rest of our week learning about the letter M and having fun with monsters. Next week, we will be talking about the letter T and our story Dig, Dig, Digging. We also go on our first field trip to the pumpkin patch and we are having a "T" party with our teddy bears! Whew! I know some sweet babies and a few kindergarten teachers that are going to be worn out from all that fun! :) Check back next week for pictures of our adventures! Have an awesome weekend!



Oh yeah and BEAT BOAZ!!!

Awesome first days!

We are doing so great in kindergarten! We have only been at school for a short while, but have learned so much! I hope your child has told you all about being  a peacemaker, our color days, pe, lunch, music and many other FUN things we are doing here at BSLK! I am so proud of all my little kinder babies! Next week our theme will be "All About Me". We will be learning a little about ourselves  and our new classmates.

Also, I have sent homework home for the first time this past week. I want to say again, do not stress about homework. :) I send it home to help learn responsibility and give your child an opportunity to practice at home. Feel free to do two nights in a row or catch up later in the week. This homework should really take no more than 10-15 mins a night. If it is taking longer, stop and come back to it another night or later in the week. I don't want anyone to be frustrated with kindergarten homework, especially your baby! Talk to me if your worried.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Rest up because its going to be another busy and fun week at BSLK!
