Off to a Great Start!

We’ve had such a great start to Kindergarten in Room 3! It’s been fun getting to know everyone, and I’m so excited for the school year and an “Adventure in Learning”– we are all Happy Campers in Room 3!

On the first day, we all got to meet each other and learn each other’s names, the school rules, and much more. The first day of school is always hard, but everyone did such a great job! I think everyone was a bit nervous, but luckily we got comfortable with our classroom and each other pretty quickly.

For the rest of the week, we all got used to the classroom routine, and by Friday, we were ready for a treat!

After reading several versions of the Gingerbread Man, we decided to make one of our own. We started by rolling out the dough and shaping it, then each student got to place a piece of candy on the gingerbread man. We had such a handsome gingerbread man, so we went to the lunch room and put him in the oven to bake. Only, when we came back to get him, the gingerbread man had already run off! He left notes behind hinting at the different places he went, which lead us on a wild goose chase throughout the school! By the time we got all the way to the music room, we were exhausted, so we went back to Room 3 and we were greeted by a nice surprise! The gingerbread man was waiting for us in the classroom, and that was a good thing because we all were pretty hungry! That gingerbread man made a nice snack, and this activity was such a fun way to learn our way around the school!

We’ve been having fun learning about plane shapes. We can identify all of the shapes and tell you how many sides, verticies/corners/angles they have. We will be exploring more with shapes before we start sorting and making patterns with them. We will also be working on counting and number formation.

We have been enjoying our “All About Me”unit! Our paper plate people and our mosaics turned out great!

We have had so much fun the first couple weeks of school, and I love being able to share with you a taste of all the things we do. I created a photo album that I will continually add photos to throughout the year. You can also add your own pictures that you take when at school if you have an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, so I hope it will become an extensive collection of all of our fun kindergarten memories throughout the school year!
