PaJaMa DaY!!

Mrs. Rowan gave us a challenge at the beginning of our Boosterthon fundraiser this year that if we got pledges from all 50 states, our school would have a pajama day!!!  Well, we did it!!! AND, our class alone received pledges from 15 states and Mexico!!  WOW!!  Brown's Bears were amazing this year!!!!  The kids thoroughly enjoyed our pajama day on Friday!  Of course it didn't hurt that we also popped popcorn with Mrs. Webb's class for the end of our 5 Senses unit AND we had a birthday that day!!!  It was very exciting indeed!!


Super Cute, Super Heros!! 


Pretty in Pink!!


Twins!!!


Whole class on PJ Day!




POP...POP...POPCORN!!!

Lately....

I know it's been a while since I last updated!  Sorry!!  Things are progressing beautifully in room 302!  The kiddos are really picking up on the rules of the school and of the classroom.  There are many students in the class who have filled their first punch card on their lanyard!  If you don't know what I'm talking about, ask your child!  They can tell you all about it!  :)  This week we started our Literacy and Math Centers.  This is a huge deal in kinder!  We are also forming many new friendships!  The kids have really taken to each other and are getting along great! Here are some pictures to enjoy!

"Frog Finger!"

I started something new with the kids this year.  In order to keep them quiet while taking class bathroom breaks I bring my "frog finger" with me!  The frog finger is a big giant stuffed TCU(horned frogs!) finger that someone gave me! I let the "quietest person" hold it for a little bit.  The kids LOVE IT!!!!  I haven't heard a peep all week at the bathroom!  I forgot to take pictures of it today, but here are some from yesterday!







Be sure to ask your kiddo if they've held the FROG FINGER yet!! :)

DAY 2!!

WOW!  Yesterday was great...but today was AWESOME!!  The kids remembered all of our rules and procedures from yesterday and learned even more today!!


Today I introduced 4 math tubs!  The students were able to explore with them at their tables!  It was a big hit!!


Teddy bears used for sorting, making patterns and so much more!

Pattern blocks are lots of fun!!



Who knew you could learn with buttons?!

Cubes are definitely a favorite among kindergarteners!


All in all it was a really super day! :)

The kids also loved meeting all of their new friends!  We have a really great bunch this year, and I know there will be wonderful friendships formed!
