Week Twenty Four- Valentines, Jack Hartmann, Career Day and ANOTHER New Student!

We have had a SUPER busy week at BSLK! On Monday Ms. Smith's supervisor came to watch us and see what a good job we had done in teaching her all about kindergarten! He has impressed of course! We had our Valentine exchange and party on Tuesday. (I was absent on Tuesday so no pictures of the party). Thursday we had our field trip to see Jack Hartmann. He is the most wonderful children's singer! After the concert he came to Big Spring Lake and visited each classroom! We had an unexpected addition to our classroom on Thursday when we added our new student Alberto! Friday was career day at Big Spring Lake and it was the best career day ever! We are sad to say that Monday will the last day we get to have Ms. Smith because she is moving to first grade. We will miss her so much. She is a great teacher. Here are some pictures of our week.

Week 23- Fairy Tales and a new student!

We had a great time this week learning about Fairy Tales! We read Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Little Red Hen, The Three Pigs, Rapunzel, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Jack and the Beanstalk.

Writing facts about the Little Red Hen

The boys had "monster" nails to use to practice reading at the teacher table this week. These are the "princess" nails with a little bit of decoration from a green and a silver marker. They loved them. The boys didn't want to have girly stuff!

A close up picture of our new "princess" fingernails. We wear these to help us read.

We had another surprise this week. We added another new student! This the third new student since Thanksgiving and the second one in two weeks! She is such a sweetie!

Week 22-We have a new student!

This week our student teacher Ms. Smith has been teaching the class all day. She has taught about weather and we have had a great time with her!  I have been working on completing mid year assessments and math chapter tests. I am pleased with the progress all of the children have made since the beginning of the year! I did not get many pictures made as I tried to stay out of the classroom while she was teaching. We were all surprised this week when we got a new student.  He is a sweetie!
