We had a WONDERFUL celebration before our Holiday break! Merry Christmas AM class and families!!
I want to draw your attention to the kids faces as they watched their friends open gifts!! It was so cute to watch them give each other presents….they have such big hearts and truly got into the season of giving!!
Each Kindergarten class enjoyed a variety of “retold” gingerbread man/baby/boy/friend stories. We compared and contrasted them and then retold and sequenced the original. After that, we decorated a cookie and also graphed which part we bit first!
It was so funny how offended the kids were at the end of the original story when the fox ate the gingerbread man….So it was fun to point out to them, after they ate their decorated cookies, that they were like the “fox” 🙂
We had a special visitor/helper in the afternoon class…..Miss Pat, my mom! The kids enjoyed meeting her!
We partnered up with a fifth grade class. They brought a holiday book to read to us, and we read a book to them! Afterwards we played a game together! Now we look to wave to them as we pass their class after music each week!
We have some awesome fifth grade students here at New Holland Elementary! Mrs. Eberly thinks that some of them have a future in teaching! They were all very kind and helpful! We hope to get together again sometime to do computer buddies or math buddies!
We learned about where and how pumpkins grow, what we can make from a pumpkin, and then we investigated a pumpkin.
Some thought it was fun. Others thought it was gross. And some even thought I was crazy for suggesting we dig out the seeds! It was a great day to be in Kindergarten!
