Fairytales, New Centers and Updates!

We have been keeping very busy in kindergarten! I have a couple of updates for you and some great pictures as well :) Just a reminder that there will be no school for the kindergarteners this Friday because of kindergarten round up. Hard to believe first grade is just around the corner! I have also sent home some of our sight word flashcards in the Friday folders! I will be sending more home in the next couple of weeks! The kids are doing an awesome job with their sight words and are starting to become great readers! I can tell that they are enjoying reading and it is fun to watch them continue to grow through the year! I also sent home the March show and share calendar in last weeks Friday folder!

The kids had a blast with our fairy tale unit! Here are some pictures of our fairy tale unit and Valentine's Day party:

Valentine's Day Party!

One of the highlights of this month has been our new centers! The kindergarteners are really enjoying this time at the end of the day to socialize and learn with their peers! Here are some of the new centers we have added!

Build: The students build or create something using blocks! So far we have had some neat projects! Some of our projects include a zoo, car garage and a castle!

Be a Teacher: At this center the students take turns pretending to be a teacher! I can already see some great teachers in our future!

 Technology: The students can use the iPads/iPods or the Smartboard to play educational games!

Be an Author: The students can create books, stories, lists or letters to take home or share in our classroom library!

This week we will be finishing up our space unit! We have spend the week being astronauts and learning all about space!
