Greetings from Kindergarten!

As always, the month of December is flying by! Remember I will be at a tech conference on Monday and Tuesday. We will have a guest teacher! Please remind your kindergartner to use his/her CARES values even when I am gone. Thank you! :)

Grinch Making

We have some awesome grinches hanging in the hallway. We have loved reading, writing, and creating for the holidays!

Elf

Have you heard our elf has been hiding around our classroom? We have also been talking about other holiday traditions and have learned about the holidays of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.

Morning Meeting

Morning meeting continues to be a the best way to start our kindergarten day. We begin with a greeting and move onto sharing, an activity, and news for the day.

Blog update

Our latest blog post shares a video from Scarecrow Day and our Thanksgiving Fruit Feast.
