October part I

We have had a wonderful start to October.  The Kinders are now into their third round of Math Rotations and their second round of Literacy Centers.  I am teaching small groups and hope that all of you are enjoying listening to your READERS each afternoon.  They are SO PROUD of themselves... and I am so grateful to be a witness to this amazing progress in each of them.  Guided Reading Groups is honestly one of the top highlights of my day :) 

I have a ton of pictures on my phone already so I thought I'd share the first two weeks with you now as we have an action-packed rest of October and so I'm sure that I'll have a full post come the first of November.  Enjoy! 

These are our Rainbow Fish from Social Studies last week.  
Above them are the self-portraits we made after reading A, My Name is Alice and worked on alliteration.  

Practicing our new sight word... like!

Quiet reading time.

We had our first write-the-room activity and the Kinders LOVED it!  Good thing because I have many, many more in store this year.  

Our field trip to the UVFD was a success.  Thank you to our chaperones :) 

Demonstrating Stop, Drop and Roll!  

Touring the sleeping quarters.

Here is my great yard sale find from a few years ago!  :) 

Thank you to Mrs. A!  We are really enjoying the rice in the sand table during Application Centers.

Some October-themed Math Rotations.

Friday was our dear Miss Madison's 18th birthday!
I met the kids in the cafeteria and gave them each a flower to give her along with the cards that we made.  Everyone was very excited to surprise her :) 

We love Miss Madison!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
