We were very fortunate to have the Jacksonville Fire/Rescue Unit visit us Friday and discuss fire safety. The firemen passed on valuable information to our students including having a meeting place in case of fire. They dressed up in their gear to show the children what they would look like and not to be frightened and hide if they see them.

The finished product was awesome! Thank you room moms for helping the children decorate some of their favorite nursery rhymes.

Using puppets is a wonderful way to retell stories. Students are taking turns using the The Three Billy Goats Gruff puppets to retell one of our favorite Star books. A Star book is a traditional story that the children hear a few times until they are able to "read" or "retell" the story by looking at the pictures and noticing the words. Some other Star books include: Caps for Sale, Where the Wild Things Are, and The Carrot Seed.

Our first week of Kindergarten is now behind us. In Skills Block, we have been singing about Humpty Dumpty, pointing out words that rhyme and that are the same, and have also danced to the Humpty Dumpty song. Nursery rhymes are a great way that students can practice phonemic awareness (being able to rhyme words) which is important in reading preparedness.
Today students had lots of fun making the first page of their Nursery Rhyme book. We will be adding a new rhyme once a week.

It is an equally happy and sad time in Room 104. Children realize that they are leaving us after two years (Kindergarten and First Grade). Some of our students are moving (San Francisco, Tampa, and Georgia). We can't keep them forever but we hope that what they have learned from us, socially and educationally, will live with them for a very long time. It has been our pleasure to be your child's teachers and they will forever be in our hearts. Below are some miscellaneous pictures through the year.
