Food Group Friend

We have been studying the food groups in Kindergarten.  The materials came from the USDA. Go HERE for more ideas as well.  Because you know you want to meet Farrah Fruit and cheer for Jane Grain and meet the rest of the gang!!

Winter Work

I think this is a Lakeshore game.  Spin the spinner. Orange fish say letter sound. Red fish say a word that begins with that letter. Blue fish say the letter name :)

Busy Workers

Today we worked very hard. Take a look at our hard work!!


We drew, read, and wrote. 


We journaled. 


Me and my mom went to the gas station. 

My rocket ship was smoking. 




Puzzle time. 






Snowman sounds. Children hid a snowball behind a snowman and other children had to say the sound as a guess as to where the snowball was hiding.

Dollar Tree Goodies



Metal pan for magnets. Instead of using my Pampered Chef one lol

St Patrick's Day window clings either for windows or on a light table


Jumping frogs well duh, they're frogs. But use as the game or on the light table 

The colorful cylinder is a pill box but we will use it on the light table. 

The blue box will hold the plastic ice cubes which we will use on the light table. 


The pink drawers will house the pink hearts. They are table scatter but will be used on the light table   

There are two dust pans because our lovely puppy keeps eating them lol

Bats

This week the kindergartners studied bats.

They were given a black square for the body and wings traced and stapled together, so they only had to cut once.  Should have taken photos of that too!  They got a rhombus to cut in half for the ears and 2 squares to cut the corners to make the eyes.  They added pupils and a mouth.





We read a book about bats and how the momma bat wrapped her wings around the baby bat.  So the teachers folded them over and glued the title on.

Opened one wing and wrote By and their name.

On the inside of the wings, they unscrambled some bat fact sentences.
We fixed the boo-boo on hers after I took the photo :)
