Truffula trees are what EVERYONE needs!

Hi, Everyone!  
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Read Across America Week
as we celebrate reading and Dr. Seuss' Birthday!

 I had tons of fun creating truffula trees (from the Lorax)
Pinterest idea!!!!  Yay!!!! 
I actually wanted to make a forest of Truffela trees but ran out of
pipe insulators and tissue paper.

 And here is an annual tradition for Fionn and I:
Green Eggs and Ham!
(Actually pretzels, white chocolate, and green M&M's)
We make enough for his class and all 3 K rooms!

Monday a note will go home about sending in any Dr. Seuss books you have.
We will return them on Friday.

Here are a couple of books from last week as we wrapped up dental health and American symbols:
You Think It's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy? America the Beautiful I Know Why I Brush My Teeth 

Dear Parents,

Thanks to everyone who made it to our final parent/teacher conferences last week.  We had nearly 100% turnout!  Thanks also to all the families who purchased books for our classrooms from the Book Fair! You are awesome!

This week in K we are celebrating Read Across America and Dr. Seuss' Birthday with the whole entire nation!
This year's focus is The Lorax!
Our theme days are as follows:
Monday-crazy, hairy day (The Lorax IS a furry little fella!)
Tuesday-tree day (brown bottoms/green tops)
Wednesday-go green day (The Lorax teaches us to take care of our world)
Thursday-endangered animal day
Friday-rainbow day...Kindergarten's color is orange

Reading finds us looking at the letter Qq, sound for /q/, short i words, quotation marks, the star words 'is' and 'here',  and ending sounds.
In Math we will continue geometric solids as we learn cylinder, cone,cube, sphere, and rectangular prism; plus counting and numerals to 50.
Of course our theme is Dr. Seuss!
