Curriculum Night & What we've been doing!

It's been a very busy couple of weeks in Kindergarten!  We've been learning rules, routines, friends, a schedule and now we are in full swing with our curriculum.  We are using Letterland to learn our letters and we have learned all about Annie Apple, Bouncy Ben and Clever Cat.  Tomorrow we are onto the letter D! We have worked on the numbers 1, 2, and 3 and learned all about Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Brown Bear. Here are a few pictures of what we've been up to.

Our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Frames. 

Making our names with beans.  This was a great lesson about learning to use glue and forming the letters that make our names. 

We made a school bus to help us remember bus safety!

Our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree in the hall.  We made the letters in the Art Center and we made our names and counted the letters during writing one day.  Excuse my wonky tree - I'm not an artist by any means :) 

We took some pictures for our frames today with Curious George from Kohl's...I love those little $5 stuffed animals :)  Here are my cuties minus the 3 that were absent today...I will add them in soon :)

We've been doing lots more, but that's what I've captured so far!  More to come later, I promise :) 

Tonight was Curriculum Night.  We had 6 families show up, so many missed my fabulous presentation on all things Kindergarten.  Here's a copy of what we talked about.  It looks a little strange in this form, but it gives you the information you need.

Families, if you are wondering about things you can work on right now, there are a lot!  Here are some suggestions:

Things to Work on Right Now
