It's Over, It's Done, But Wasn't Kindergarten Fun?

Sunday, June 14, 2015


 I'm showing this picture first because it sums up the last day of Kindergarten! Autographed bucket-heads!


This is the tag that is flipped over in the picture.

We spent part of the morning autographing buckets!


I also made photo/ autograph books for each child with pictures 
from the school year. So Fun!


We played Beach Blanket Sight Word Bingo with 
"Smarties" for markers and had ice cream sundaes. Yum!

What's a last day of kinder with out a little water fun?
We did water races, water balloon toss 
and a from the knees down water balloon fight!

A dear friend grandmother of Violet and amazing retired Kindergarten teacher Pam Peters made these darling t-shirts with my Kiddos to wear on the last day!
Happy Summer Friends!

It's A Zoo Out There!

Sunday, June 7, 2015


We are finishing up the year with our Zoo Unit !
I'm taking lots of these activities I Teach K Las Vegas!!
 I hope to see you there!


Last week we had a great time visiting the Santa Ana Zoo!


We learned lots of great Lion Facts to go in our 
"All About Lions Booklet!"
We used a Glossary, Thinking Maps and Graphic Organizers to have lots of interesting facts to write about! I was so proud of my kiddos with how much they could write at this time of the year.


These darling Zookeepers were used for
 book covers and paper dolls.


We also used our thinking maps to write about giraffes. 
Did you know giraffes sleep standing up?
