Week 17 Letter Hh, Star Word 'a', Mittens, and COLD DAYS!!!

Welcome 2014!
What a bitter cold beginning...I sure missed the K Kids come Monday and Tuesday when we couldn't go to school!
Here are the books we began our 1st week in 2014 with...
   
  
Be sure to grab these new favorites and old classics next time you and your k kiddo are in the library.

We began our week with a little extra choice time!
The k kids sure missed each other, too!

Math has us looking at interesting 2d shapes:
Trapezoid, rhombus, and hexagon are three new shapes for us.





On Wednesday afternoon we were treated to a presentation by
ERIN ORTH,  DAIRY PRINCESS!
She taught us about healthy eating, including dairy products.
She also read us a great book about the life of a calf.
Then we created our own cow puppet while snacking on cheese sticks.
Well done!



Here are some kiddos showing their adorable snow jewelry they created!


Centers on Thursday included:
Snowman Reading...yep really reading!
Overheard: "Mrs. O', not only am I a reader, but I am a writer, too!"
WIN!

 

Beginning Sound Mittens...


(OH MY NEW FAVORITE!)
Snow is Falling...one to one correspondence to 20
with the snowflakes that you can see hanging from the ceiling!
It was just like walking in a blizzard...expect warmer!


Smartie Snowflake Letter Sort...

And finally a Pair of Friends...

We read 2 different versions of The Mitten Folktale
