Today we created an anchor chart to help us remember what active listening looks like and sounds like. Take a peek ..

Writing Numbers

We learned a new game called Race to Trace (thanks Shari Sloane from kidscount1234).  Students worked on number identification, dice dot recognition (number sets), and numeral writing.  The Kinders were excited to bring the game home to play against their family members!

Math Tools

We enjoyed discovering some of the math tools we will be using this year.  It was also a great way to practice working in groups.

Marshmallow Toes

We have been talking about the importance of walking quietly in the hallways so learning is not interrupted.  We sorted quiet and loud noises, learned a poem and created marshmallow toes of our own (they even tasted yummy)!

Above the line/below the line

Today we talked about behaviors/choices that are above the line and below the line. We also read Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse and discussed the choices she made that were above/below the line. We also shared what we noticed Lilly did to get back above the line when she made a below the line choice. Here is the anchor chart we started today. We will continue to work on this on Friday and next week too. 
Here is a great group of active listeners. 

Busy First Friday of Kindergarten

Today we began our morning by meeting Mr. Porter (school psychologist) at our Impact Academy Community Meeting. We also heard from Ms. Thoen (5th grade anchor) and Mrs. M Johnson (3rd grade anchor) teachers give an update from our Kingsley Shores residents. They made back to school gifts for each IA kiddo. 
We also worked in our letter stations and had our brain break outside this morning. Have an enjoyable weekend families.
