Last Saturday I had the privilege
to speak at the
North Dakota Kindergarten Conference
in Grand Forks. The theme was
"3 Cheers for Kindergarten"
The teachers were so much fun!
I only wish we lived closer so we could plan together.
The photos are with my 3 new friends! Leslie and Traci who invited me to ND and took me out to dinner to a really fun place called the Toasted Frog. We had "cheesy pickles," "sweet potato fries" and fish tacos. Yum! Their hospitality was amazing I feel so blessed to have been invited. The second photo is with Kathleen from Growing Kinder's she was so gracious to sell some of my products for me. I feel like I've known them forever. I just love spending time with fun, creative teachers :)
The tables at my sessions were set up with megaphones, pom-poms and
alphabet cheer cards!
I even got introduced by cheerleaders!
Back to a busy week in Kinder!
We made haunted house patterns in our
We got "BOOed" by a Kinder class
who left us a fun Halloween
bucket full of goodies to count and sort.
So we tip-toed to "Boo" another class, leave the bucket and hurry back to our class
before they could see us!
Here is our graph after we tasted three kinds of tea
(fruit punch) at Miss Spiders Tea party.
We analyzed all our information and we found out the The rose petal tea was most popular!
We learned some spider facts to
put in our science journals.
After reading Miss Spider we made our
own cute spiders and then wrote about Miss Spider.
The link below tells you how to make her!
Look for the Miss Spider Link in PDF
This week we have been "Going Batty"
learning all kinds of fun bat facts
and having a bat themed week.
Above is our batty rhymes to
practice the "at" family.
This is a science journal page the
children completed during literacy centers.
They made the painted bat earlier in the week.
More literacy center fun!
Of course we had to make a yummy
bat for cooking this week!
***Many are asking about my cookbook.
I'm working on it as fast as I can:)
Here are the latest additions to our
ABC Art books.
Frankenstein is one of my favorite pages.
I'm off to bed...
I need to rest up for another great day in Kindergarten! Thank you for checking out my blog and sharing it with your friends!
