And we're off!

It feels good to be back! Our first week of Kindergarten went totally as expected. We were busy, busy, busy and tired, tired, tired, that certainly includes me! We always start things off with the easy theme of apples because everybody knows something about apples. Today we brainstormed about apples, read about apples, counted pretend apples, matched a number with the proper set of apples, made an apple craft, tasted apples and graphed which color of apple we liked best.
We had a great day in Kindergarten. I wrote a little note in each Bluebook about some of the learning outcomes we are working on. Any help you can provide from home will be a bonus for the little ones. I have posted some pictures below of our apple craft, our graphing activity, and our bulletin board with all the apples the students did for me before school even started.

Hi Mrs. McMahon and Class

We like your apple art. We are starting a project on apples too! Let's see if we can do something together! We will think of some ideas and you can let us know yours. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Guys,
My class all like red apples the best.Your apple man looks very cool. You must have been very good at folding paper by the time you finished his arms and legs!

Great apples! Your class has many children and we see lots of people liked red like us! Nobody at our class likes Golden Delicious apples the best. Our graph is on our blog - check it out!
