Happy Friday everyone!!!

We had such a fantastic week learning all about being thankful!! Together we read some amazing books that taught them what it really means to be thankful. We also had a great discussion  on wants vs’s needs!! Your kiddos did such a great job on this, so we decided to make a chart out of it!! Together we also created our own class book about everything we are thankful for. It’s in our library, so come check it out!!! Ms. Amanda also had our friends create different crafts that gave them a better understanding of what it means to be thankful:)

Take a look at our wants vs needs chart up above and down below our class is working hard drawing and writing what they are thankful for.

The movable alphabet is such an awesome tool that teaches reading, spelling, and writing. It’s one of my favorite works!
The purpose of the sandpaper letters is to teach the child the sounds of the alphabet by means of muscular and visual memory. The child is encouraged to trace the symbol over and over again until the shape of the letter becomes part of the childs muscle memory.
One of our Kindergarten students is working on our North America puzzle. He is taking his time coloring and labeling the different countries .
