First Week in Kindergarten!

The first three days of kindergarten were a blast :) We have enjoyed getting to know all of our new friends! Every day we start our day with math time. The kindergarteners enjoyed practiced writing their numbers on whiteboards. In reading, we learned about our first two letters alive friends Amos the Alligator and Brody the Bear!

In reading we also learned about our first daily five station called read to self! We practiced our stamina for a whole minute of reading to ourselves from our new poetry journal!

We did a great job with our first writers workshop lesson! The kindergarteners came up with some great stories to write about and share!

In the first three days we have read and compared many first day of school books! Two of our favorite books were "The Kissing Hand" and "First Day Jitters". After reading the books we discussed how we felt on the first day of school! Here are our Chester masks we made after reading "The Kissing Hand"!

Another favorite character we learned about this week is Pete the Cat! We read the books "Pete the Cat Rocking in my School Shoes" and "Pete the Cat I Love my White Shoes". We created guided drawing of Pete the Cat and they turned out great! Here are our drawings:

We sang and danced to many get to know you games to learn our friends' names! We also talked about filling our friends' buckets and we have already added several pom poms to our class bucket :)

One of our favorite times of the day is center time! The kindergarteners had a blast meeting and playing with our new friends at centers!

We ended our day with a favorite kindergarten song and dance called The Gummy Bear Song!

We had an amazing first three days of kindergarten! I was so excited to have our whole kindergarten class at school together today! Here are our first day pictures:
