100th Day of School Fun

Last week we celebrated the 100th Day of School.  We rolled and counted to 100, made a crazy hat with 100 things on it, looked at clothes, toys, and cars from 100 years ago, and even made ourselves look 100 years old.  Now that was a little scary!  At the end of the day we even made a yummy trail mix with 100 things in it.  It was an incredible day, and I can't believe I only have 4 more months with these kiddos.

A Little Real World Shopping Fun!

For a fantastic ending to our money unit, we had a little shopping fun in the classroom.  Thank you to my WONDERFUL classroom parents for their donations. The kids had some awesome items and candy to "buy" today.  Of course we used our classroom play money, and the kids actually got their money back after buying their items.  My parent volunteers said it would be nice if that part actually happened in real life.  :)  Well...... so we were close to making it real life.
THANK YOU sooooo much to everyone who made this possible!

Let the shopping begin!

Let's have a picnic!!

Learning Numbers 1-10 in Kindergarten

Over the past two weeks in kindergarten, we have been learning all about and studying numbers 1-10.  We have been matching, sorting, clapping, tracing, writing, building, and counting everything around us to help us learn these numbers.  Here are a couple of our activities.

Match Mine with Numbers and Number Boxes
One partner had the number and one partner had the box with dots.  First, they had to cut up the pieces and bring them all to me.  Oh yes, don't worry..... I mixed them all up.  They loved it!!  Then they had to order the numbers and put the matching pieces together.

 Write the Room
I had pictures hidden all over the room.  They had to find a picture and count the dots on the dice.  Next, they had to find the corresponding picture on their paper and write the correct number.  They were like little investigators.  Actually BIG investigators.....look how hard they are working!!
