December 5- 9th

We received some wonderful treats these past few weeks! Since we participated in Boosterthon- we won some extremely cool prizes. Our class raised so much money that we received: Chalk day, extra centers, extra recess, PJ day, dance party, and a movie. We also raised the most money out of Kindergarten and were rewarded with an ice cream party!






After our ice cream, we had our dance party. BOY do those kids have some dance moves! They loved turning the lights off and dancing to some Kidz Bop! :) Loved that they had so much fun by raising money for our school.

How is the year almost half way over?! It is crazy how fast time is moving. Our littles are not so little anymore. They have been doing a fantastic job this year- I am so lucky to have such an awesome class! Recently we have been learning about magnets in science. The kids LOVE this subject. They think magnets are the coolest. The kids were able to explore around the class with their own magnet and figure out which things were magnetic and which were not. We discussed why things were magnetic and even found out that not all metals attract a magnet. 



We also have been working on our writing skills. We learned to sound out our words by stretching them out like bubble gum. When we stretch them, we can hear the sounds in the words. We recently read a book about kindness and decided to light up our classroom with kindness. Every received a light bulb and had to write ways we are kind. Some of the ideas they came up with warmed my heart. They truly are precious.
