What a busy couple of weeks! This week we are doing a thematic unit of study on the gingerbread man and last week we did an awesome unit on nocturnal animals. Prompt your child with, "On a moonlight night when the stars come out...." and see if they can sing our nocturnal animal song! :)
I have been very, very pleased with all of the growth I am seeing during kindergarten report card assessments. One of the things I love most about teaching kindergarten is the second semester. It seems by then they have found their groove and the amount of learning that takes place always astounds me. Honestly, I cannot believe we are already almost to that point. This year has absolutely flown so far! I would like to share with you some pictures of activities that we did last week.
