Cross Curriculum with Kindergarten Pumpkins

When the kindergarten class from Mrs. Creech's room brought back their pumpkin paintings to their room they shared with Mrs. Creech the "How". I love the way she created a visual thinking poster for their room.  I don't even have to tell you the "How" part because they did it for you, including using a WHOLE lotta Yellow and a little bit of red!  Thanks Mrs. Creech!

Fast Finishers

At both schools I keep a couple of buckets of books. The favorites are definitely the I Spy books.  I only have 30 minute classes but there's always a couple who seem to finish early.  I also have blocks at PKE but sharing seems to be a tougher skill this year so I had to put them away for awhile.  The books get pretty beat up but I scour garage sales and Ebay for deals.

More Mondrian and The Taste of Clarkston

A kindergarten lesson I do every year. I decided at one school to have the students fill in the spaces with washable markers and then let the students use water to "Color" the space. At the other school I used Alphacakes and I definitely like the painted lesson much better.
My Boys enjoying the great food!
