2018 Week 36 Pond Life and REVIEW!

If you need me, this is where you'll find me these days!
What a nice Mother's Day surprise...the couch that is!

In Kindergarten you might think we are wrapping up and packing away...NOT YET!
First we have to get out the POND and the MAGNETS!
(yyyyyyeeeessss, the crowd goes wild!)
 We have tons of chirping frogs!
And if Mother Nature cooperates, we will have real frog eggs and tadpoles to watch thanks to Ms. Flathers!
Keep your fingers crossed...

 And here is the REAL (ish) Pond!
It actually starts to smell and look like a real pond...ha!

 The number writing continues at choice...as of Thursday the kids were on 450!

 We cannot have a frog unit without playing LEAP FROG...kindergarten style!



 We also learned the names of some pond animals and counted the sounds in the words...
 On Monday we created these cutie patoties...
TURTLES!

 Here's a peek at the MAGNET CENTER on one of the rare times there are no children at it!

 Oh, there they are! 
The smartie in pink is CREATING a magnet just like we learned about!

 
 On Tuesday we created these tiny little turtles!
What a hit!













The Pizza Parlor is STILL a hoppin'! 
 On Tuesday we created these lovely lotus blossoms!
