We have had so many awesome things going on at BSLK these past few weeks. We have been able to meet great children's authors, learned about Pilgrims, Indians, and Thanksgiving, had a Thanksgiving feast, did an awesome job in our Thanksgiving program, preformed in our PTO program, took 400+ kindergarten students and teachers to see the Little Aggies Theater preform Little Red, and even went to a real Pow Wow! whew!!!!! And I got very few pictures because my husband took our camera on his hunting trip to Colorado. I know what I am going to ask Santa for Christmas! ;)
Here are a few pics of our Thanksgiving literacy centers. Just so you know, I didn't make all these centers, but all were made by BSLK teachers. I am so glad we share!
Working on number order with our Pilgrim hats.
Here is the sheet that goes with the number order.
word families, this center had pilgrims with -ap, -at, and -am words written on them. Forgot to get a pic of those.
Our new lakeshore game! We love it! It's letter of the day. They are able to pick a letter and find things that begin with the letter's sound, practice writing the letter, and learn a song about the letter's sound. We love our board!
I hope you are all enjoying your little blessings this week! They are all so special and smart. If you haven't noticed yet, we are beginning to read!!!!!! Its so exciting to see them starting to understand reading and read words on their own. I need to take pictures of their faces when they read words to me at school. I promise you see a little light bulb go off and they want to read everything! So proud of all of them. If you are looking for practice this week while they are off, letting them play on starfall.com is great , letting them draw pictures and sound out words to label items in their pictures, or just reading with them are all great ways to practice.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends and memories. I am so thankful to be your child's first real teacher and that you trust me with your most special gift everyday. Hug them tight for me this week.
