Well, the first week of kindergarten is over. We had an awesome week. My kids are such sweeties and so excited about our year together. We spent a lot of time this week getting to know each other, learning our classroom rules, and of course, reading The Kissing Hand. We searched all over our school for Chester the Raccoon! We missed him, but he did leave us a yummy snack in our room before he left ;) We also learned about being a peacemaker. Our school has a school wide rule, follow the Golden Rule. How simple is that?! Peacemakers follow the Golden Rule. The kids have loved acting out being a peacemaker at school. We also made a classroom promise! It's just so cute and they are so proud of themselves. I will post pics later this week. We will be talking about being a peacemaker a lot more these first nine weeks of school.
This next week we are starting our Scott Foresman reading unit, literacy centers, eating lunch in our lunchroom, P.E. everyday, and our color/color word units. Wow! Lots to do! Monday is the color brown so don't forget to wear the color brown and parents if you are in charge of our special color snack (chocolate teddy grahams) please don't forget to send them! :) It's going to be another great week!
