Grandparent's Day, "T" parties, and GREAT fall weather!

We have been so busy in our classroom the last couple of weeks. We had Grandparent's Day, PTO open house, and we are learning lots of new things in our classroom.

Grandparent's day was wonderful for our kids. Thank you to all the grandparents and parents who were able to be a part of that. I know the kids loved showing you around our wonderful school. Here are a few pictures of some of our awesome grandparents. (I forgot to get my camera out until the very end :( so I only got a few pics )

We also have been learning a lot about the letter M and this week the letter T. For the letter M, we made our very own monsters and danced to the monster mash. What fun! This week for the letter T, we talked about teddy bears. On Friday, we brought our teddy bear friends to our "T" party. All our snack started with the letter T. (Ex, Tootsie Rolls, Trix cereal, Tostitos chips, tangelos) The kids loved it! The weather was wonderful except for the wind, which made things a little interesting with our paper plates. Let's just say the birds and ants are fed well at BLSK. :) My boys also got to bring their trucks for free centers on Friday. Our story this week was about machines that help people, so we had centers where we were building buildings and roads for our trucks to drive on. They are so creative!

The weather was great for playing! Peek-a-Boo!

Another great thing we are doing in our room  is Writer's Workshop  designed by Lucy Calkins. We all have stories to share and we will be authors this year. The kids have been so excited about this and I am too! Ask them about it.
My post was a little long this week, but we had lots to share! :) We are so busy having fun learning at BSLK! Next week holds more fun things! Hope you are out enjoying this GREAT weather with your sweeties!
