Second Day Fun!
The second day of Kindergarten was full of more fun and our second visit to see animals on our Safari. Students began their day by sitting in the cafeteria, saying goodbye to Mommies and Daddies and waiting for us to come and walk them to the classroom. We have two patrols (fifth graders) who are assigned to help our classroom. They will become familiar faces to our K students. We unpacked and practiced a fire drill. We reviewed class rules and asked students to share some of the rules/guidelines that they thought we should have in our class. We reworded statements so that they were positive (Ex: Use quiet voices) instead of negative (Ex: No screaming). These rules will serve as our "Class Promise" which we will recite each morning. We also read the book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and reviewed letters. Students worked on drawing and cutting out their hands to make their own Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree. "Smarty Tarties" were challenged to write as many lowercase letters as they could going up and down their own tree. Lunch went a little smoother today, allowing kids to have plenty of time to eat. Recess is already a favorite! It's great to see the kids making new friendships already and practicing good manners for including others. Students had time to explore math manipulatives at their tables today. Students worked very hard to earn class happy faces and also worked together to earn stars for their tables. In the afternoon, we continued our Safari journey to see more awesome animals! Day 2-More Fun & Animal Safari on PhotoPeach
