Spring Egg Hunt 2014


 A few weeks ago we had our Spring egg hunt and it was so much fun for our kindergarten students. Parents were busy hiding over 650 eggs...not an easy task but so worth it.

There was a lot of concentration counting their eggs.
It was a very windy day but that didn't stop our egg hunters.
The eggs were hid all over the softball field.
Looking for some treasures inside of each egg.

Pink Bow Day

It just so happened that it was Pink Bow Day in our class and we didn't get the memo. We just thought it was comical seeing these three "bow-tastic" bows on these adorable girls. Small, medium and large bows were the style on this day and they couldn't be happier!!

Fiction and Nonfiction: Noticing the Differences



Noticing the difference between a fiction book and non fiction book is a big discovery in Kindergarten. After students were introduced to the two books "Froggy Goes To School" and "Uncover Frog", their observations were charted and discussed. The children noticed how in the book "Froggy Goes To School" frogs really don't wear clothes or go to school. They noticed that the other book "Uncover Frog" taught them about real frogs. Reader's Workshop was " leaping" with excitement while they also noticed all of the "extra" information the non fiction book gave them about frogs. 
After the lesson, children were handed a book to look over and decide where it should go (either the "fiction" or "non fiction" bin)..
Students took it one step farther by sorting the books in their book bins.
