Fun with Sight Words :)

We use the Smart Board to have fun while learning sight words! We pop balloons to reveal sight words, erase to reveal sight words, and butter pieces of popcorn that have sight words on them.

Apples :)

We completed our Apple unit during September:) We discussed the parts of the apple, Johnny Appleseed, and the different colors that apples can be. We have been doing many fun activities! :) We tasted red, yellow, and green apples and then graphed our favorite. We also had an apple food tasting day and then we graphed our favorite apple food. As a number review, we read "Ten Apples Up on Top", drew our favorite character from the book, and arragned 10 apples on top of their head. It's been a blast!

We can build letters! :)

We have been using wooden pieces to build letters. The students have so much fun using these "lines" and "curves" to create letters. We build them and then talk about the letter name and letter sound. Learning can be so much fun! :)

Morning Math :)

Every morning we review important math concepts using the Smart Board. The kids love using the Smart Board to learn about patterns, shapes, counting, numbers, money, the days of the week, the months of the year, the four seasons, etc.! Please continue work with your child at home on these concepts.


Eva and Heaven came to school dressed alike last week(by accident ofcourse)! But we couldn't help but notice that they looked like cute little twins :)

Centers Make Us Smart! :)

We have so much fun learning during centers and group time! :) Some of our fun activities include: writing our letters, name, and sight words in shaving cream, writing and identifying our sight words and letters on dry-erase boards, using the Smart Board to play sight word games, creating patterns with counting bears and pattern blocks, alphabet go-fish, chalk, starfall.com, etc. The kids are learning to clean up after themselves, how to use an inside voice without disturbing others,and how to work together!

September Birthdays!

Happy Birthday to our September baby!
