It's a Zoo Out There!

Friday, July 1, 2016

We spent several months preparing the Room 2 Zoo, crafting, reading and writing about all these fabulous creatures.

We added 4 new animal exhibits to our zoo this year each child picked one animal to make. They also made a Zookeeper to watch over the animals. 
Siberian Tigers were featured in our Zoo this year!

We learned all kinds of fascinating information about them.

Macaws were a new exhibit!

Nothing like some good animal facts to get your kiddos excited about writing and learning new information.

I think my favorite new addition were our hippos made from tissue paper and starch.

Who doesn't love pandas?
More zoo friends to come!

Inspired by What Do Snowmen Do at Night. 
My kiddos made these adorable snowmen from my new

August and September Happenings from Kinderbykim!

Saturday, October 17, 2015

Late August we began and we are off to a busy but great start! I am so behind posting on my blog and have a few minutes before soccer today so... I thought I'd try to catch up! The first day of school we made this simple project ad I even got their first day of school picture on them by Back To School Night that night.
(Yes we have BTSN the first day!)

The first week we also read The Kissing Hand and made this cutie. 
We talked about how we felt about coming to kindergarten!

Our "Buckets of Fun" necklaces were a great success to wear home the first day of school!

During September we also made these cuties 
and hung them around the room! 
Thanks to Julie Lee for this darling project idea!


Kindergartners love to cook! We made Friendship Fruit and yummy Applesauce!
 you can find the recipes in my TPT store Kinder Cafe!

Enjoy your Saturday! I promise to be back soon 
with our October activities!
