What a week!

We had a great first week of school!  We did A LOT!!!!  Here is glimpse into just SOME of what we did!

We learned how to do our calendar/opening routine on our SMARTboard!  The kids absolutely LOVE it!
We learned how to make "raindrops" of glue....NOT "puddles", by gluing beans on our initials!
More raindrop practice...rainbow names for our name wall!

We did our first science experiment!  We learned what GREAT scientists do and all about a hypothesis!
Will a coconut sink or float?

We made our Letters on The Bus buses!
We graphed boys and girls in our room!

"Wheeew!"  All that learning WORE US OUT!  Good thing there are WEEKENDS!
Stay tuned more learning, pictures, and cuteness to come!

First Day Jitters!!!

Well....we survived the first day of school today!  It really was a fun, busy, TIRING, but great first day!  I have a room full of sweeties and....SMARTIES!  I think my kinder smarties will SLEEP great tonight!  I had one that told me, " I could'nt sleep last night!  I kept laying there thinking of YOU!"  Is that not the cutest!  I told her, "And I could'nt sleep because I kept thinking of YOU!"  Anyway...I think we will crash tonight!!! Here are the new Kindergarten Smarties on their first day of Kindergarten!!!
