Week 6 Mm, Nn, Oo, Pp, Monster, Owls, and Pete the Cat and THE FIRE STATION!!!!


You guessed it, another great week in K!
We began with many lovely family projects and the speeches that go with them!
Well done!



Monday was Mm day so we Made Monsters 
after reading 
Go Away, Big Green Monster!

 The kids LOVE it whenwe can work wherever we want!



We had MMMMuffins for snack!

Tuesday brought new morning challenges:
Counting ant at a picnic...numbers to 10


 ABC Order with Pillow ABCs....

 ABC-abc match up with penguins...
do you see the letter Pp pattern with the morning challenges?  We will end this round on Pp day!


Oh, Man!  I forgot to give the kids their Mm Mustache on Mm day so we wore the Missing Mustaches on Nn (under our Noses) day!






We had NNNNutter Butter Cookies and Fig NNNNewtons!

Here's a couple more family projects!


 Tuesday's centers were all about the letter Nn:
Name Practice on this Nifty paper....
 We are working on One Capital letter and the rest lower case.  We are also working on thinking about how big the lowercase letter is by asking ourselves if it is a monkey letter (with a tail that goes under the line like j,g,p,q,y)
or a big fat hen (like an a,c,e,i,m,n,o,r,s,u,v,w,x,z  they just sit on the line, not over or under)
or a giraffe (like b,d,f,h,k,l,t...they stretch all the way up to the top of the line...t is a baby giraffe as it goes up part way)


 Do You Have an Nn in Your Name Graph...



Friends' Name Puzzles 


And an all time favorite, the Great Number Race!


On Wednesday we had OOOOranges!

I gave the kiddos little tiny owl picks that some put in their orange...how adorable is that? 

We made and painted Owls!  
Scroll down for hallway pics...

On Thursday we played with POLKA DOT soup!
What fun!
(bingo chips in water with a dash of glitter)




We painted pumpkins without ORANGE PAINT!
What!!!
Yep, a little color mixing magic and we were able to make orange magically appear by mixing red and yellow!


We had Premium Popcorn for snack!
 

A few more family projects...

Here we are practicing one of the 3 safety drills...this is the lock down.  The kids did great on all three:
Fire Drill, Lock Down, and Severe Weather drill!

Thursday's centers included:
Pete the Cat color words ...we used jewels to mark the letters! 
 Then we crossed off the color we made...


Pete the Cat Beginning Sounds...


Pete the Cat Counting...


And a Pete the Cat art project with Mrs.Sauers in the lead...

Too cute!

Here's the owls in the hallway!



We learned a bit about these nocturnal birds!
