Week 8: TUVWX, Popcorn Party, Spiders, and Skeletons

Quote of the week:  As one kiddo was helping another finish our skeleton project:
"It's OK, we all need a little help once in awhile!"
Aren't they sweet!

Here's a couple of pics from Week 7:
Pompom cheers from letter Pp day!

Beautiful  baby owls

Week 8:
We created these skeletons on Friday...
This was a difficult project but the kiddos did great!
(see above quote!)

We worked together to create this real x-ray skeleton!


 The kiddos loved measuring themselves to see who was taller!


These two kiddos worked to put our skeleton together!

More skeleton projects



We finally got into the computer lab!

More brain break work:
They just think they are having down time...they really are learning while they are having fun!

We also had a Ww project:
Washing away our water color witch!
Funny story: we were going to let Mother Nature
wash away our witches with the pouring rain..
after we got bundled up and headed out,
the rain STOPPED!
Plan B: We sprayed our witches away with a spray bottle!


Spiders EVERYWHERE was a fun day:
We created cute little pompom spiders during centers
for a fun song "Spider on the Floor"

Here the spiders are on our legs...
and on our stomachs....
our necks....
and OUR HEADS!


Another spider center was 
Spider Count


Here we are making those pompom spiders!

This is our letter sorting center
bdgpq were the focus as they are the hardest to tell apart


More spider counting....

This was a fun game called Spider Bite/Poison Spider.

Another fun spider center was web beginning sounds...

Mrs. Benke helped here on Tuesday.

Our final center was Spider Dots Counting.


Didn't you just love these cute little scarecrow pins?
It was another left over K+  project from last year.


Here we are painting our Giant Scarecrows!

Finally, on Monday the kids had their 
POPCORN PARTY!
The got 15 points in the ABC game that we play everyday!
