A Peek At Our Week! August 22-26

We had a GREAT full week of school for our 2nd week together!  We began our Color Days, which help us learn routines, early reading skills, and how to use our scissors.

We also began Math Stations.  Each day we do a mini lesson on our current skill together, then break into 5 independent or teacher led groups where students work on a specific activity to practice our current skill, review a previous skill, or work on a lesson with Miss Couch.  Math Stations will continue all year and will change every few weeks with our units.  Students go to one group each day and will rotate through all groups each week.
Students also completed our first hallway display!  Each student chose a face, t-shirt, and hair color and created a self-portrait.  Then, they sequenced the letters in their name on their t-shirt.  To complete the activity, we did a guided writing with the sentence "I am (name)."  This is a favorite activity to save to compare to the work and writing your students will be completing at the end of kindergarten!
Check back next week to see more of what we are learning about with our name cycle and letter cycle activities!

Happy 1st Day of School!

We had a GREAT 1st day of school today!  We learned a lot about routines in our classroom, received some of our classroom materials, searched for Pete the Cat all around the school, organized our classroom jobs, had recess, ate lunch, and read several good books!  Mrs. Best and I are so excited to have eager learners and good listeners!  Here are a few pictures from our day.

Meet the Teacher 2016!

Mrs. Best and I were so glad we had the opportunity to meet so many of our students and families today!  Students, please wear your blue name tags to school each day next week.  Parents, remember to read through all of the materials you received today.  It is a lot of information, but you will be well informed for our school year by taking the time to read over all of the material.  We look forward to a wonderful year with our new class!
