This week we had a very special treat at BSLK! Thursday was PJ day!! I just love PJ day! :) We joined 2 million other school age children to Read for the Record to call for and end to America's early education gap. The book that was chosen for Read for the Record was Llama, Llama, Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney. We first got to celebrate by going to a Pajama party in our music room to read the book Llama, Llama, Red Pajama with our reading coach, Mrs. Landers. She is great! We are so blessed to have such an AWESOME reading coach that plans all this for our kids! We got to help her read it and the kids helped the teachers put the story in order from beginning to end. THEN we were able to see a real live llama!! Oh my gosh! It was so much fun and the kids loved her. She was so sweet! After meeting the llama, her name was Torre, we compared and contrasted the real llama to baby llama in Llama, Llama Red Pajama. We made great kindergarten memories that day!
Listening to Mrs. Landers read Llama, Llama, Red Pajama
Wonderful Mrs. Landers!
We helped Mrs. Landers read! Our word was Llama.

We also studied the letter A this week. Our theme to go along with this letter was apples. We got to taste green, red, and yellow apples to see which one was our favorite. We graphed our favorites and we found most of our friends liked yellow apples best. We also learned about Johnny Appleseed and made our very own homemade applesauce! Our room smelled so good and it was yummy! I love fall!!!! Looking forward to another great week!
