Week 2 Pete the Cat and Brown Bear


Before we begin our kindergarten blog,
here are a few pics of last weekend's 22 mile Superior Hiking Trail backpacking adventure...
 As long as I see these little signs, I know we are not lost!

The scenery was magnificent!


Starting out...
 oh, what is this new horror?

 Preventative...not hurting (too bad!)

Snacks...meals were MREs.

Oh, goodness!  This was a bear print!


 almost to the end...
and my camera died, so not too many other pics.
You can find me on facebook to share
 in the other crazy weekends my family has!

So I made it out of the woods alive and not too banged up ready to start our week...
Well, Week #2 is just a lovely as I had hoped!
We began our Math series.
Most of the lessons are on the smartboard,
How cool is that?

We've also been learning our Alphafriends' names on the smartboard.
You can find this video here:

Here we are making our Monday project:
Pete the Cat!




 All Finished!
As Pete says..."It's all GOOD!"

We love digging for agates!
I brought some beauties home from our recent North Shore adventure!




Every Day, Mrs. Sauers plays games or reviews with us!
Here we are reviewing the tricky letters bdpq...


This is us hard at work sorting and classifying in Math...



On Tuesday we had our first go at 
CENTERS!
We rotate to 4 stations with 4 different skills!
My  table was Warm Fuzzy numeral review... 



Miss S helped out!

Mrs. Benke helped with Comfy Kitty letter matching...

We had new Morning Challenges on Wednesday.
The green team put Brown Bear cards in numeric order...

The yellow table sorted shapes...

and the red team sorted objects by color...

More independent shape/color/size sorting during our Math time...













One of my favorite times of the day...BOOK TIME!

We also sorted animals into real/imaginary groups...

We also had a nice Science lesson on
