Batty about Bats!!!

What a batty week we had in kindergarten!!!! I am so impressed by how well my students learned our fun bat vocabulary words.  To assess their learning of the vocabulary words, I took them outside (lovely weather) and they drew one of the vocabulary words with sidewalk chalk.  There were some very good drawings.  They even showed parents after school!  Yay!

Check out our bat masks.  We played maracas and made noises while one of our friends was blindfolded.  They had to listen for the sounds and locate where the noise was coming from.  Here are pictures of the students in their masks.

There were many more activities throughout the week.  One of the best highlights of our week was a video I found on DeeDee Wills blog.  Thanks DeeDee, it was a hit!

Aloha! Back to School Night

Back to School Night was a great success.  I had 21 of my 23 little kindergartners show up this evening.  Some were so excited and others were scared and shy.  

I would like to give a huge shout out to Kim Adsit of kinder gals for her fabulous open house center package.  It was a huge success and parents seemed to really like it.  Plan on doing it next year.  

Here are some pictures of the centers and few more of my "paradise."
Reading area.  My daughter took pictures here.  I think they are going to be adorable.

My new organization and Carpet bags from Kinder Gals!  Love their ideas so much!

This will be our lunch choices.

Well, the knee is killing me.  Surgery two weeks ago and I thought I would be okay.  Boy was I wrong.  It's going to be a long week for my poor knee.  It was great to see all those cute little faces tonight.  I am going to try to be better at blogging this year and hopefully stay more organized.

Classroom tour

I cannot believe in just a little over two weeks we will already be returning to school. Since I am having knee surgery the 23rd I have been working on my classroom for the past few weeks off and on. I still have a few finishing touches, but here are some pictures of my progress. I took the plunge and got rid of my bulky teacher desk and did some major organizing.

Superhero Birthday Pages

I really want to begin making items to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers, but really do not know where to begin.  I created this Superhero Birthday Set for a friend.  I think it turned out pretty good for my 1st try.  Would love some opinions before I post it on TPT.

This is the 1st page of what I created.  I will post more after I get all the permissions I need to get.  Thank you!

Rose the Elf

Well, it has been been a long time since I've had time to blog.  This year is flying by.  It seems like we just started school a few days ago.

Thanks to Cara Carroll's freebie....ELFis is in the Building my classroom is enjoying the new arrival of our own Elf from Santa.

We began the morning by finding out just what our surprise package from Santa was.  Then, we made a web of names.  Finally, we voted on our favorite name.  The top name suggestions were:

1.  Rose
2.  Elfie
3.  Jessica

After a class vote

the winning name was................

 ROSE!  What a lovely name!

I must admit, the boys were a little disappointed it was a girl!

While we were at lunch, Rose decided to climb up our lantern and take a little red rectangle with her.  Naughty Rose!  Then, while the kids were in library and Mrs. B was in a meeting, Rose decided it was time for a snack.  She also decided to take a much needed rest and read a good book.

Take a look at her mischief!
