Somewhere Over The Rainbow!

We has so much fun on Friday celebrating St. Patrick's Day.  We did it with rainbow style!

These wonderful recording sheets can be found at Golden Gang Kindergarten

I also made these wonderful rainbow cupcakes that I found on Google images and they are all over Pinterest as well!  I opted not to do the blue layer like you see in this picture.  For a little bit more fun and excitement I used yellow sprinkles for the top and told my students that it was the gold at the end of the rainbow.  My students were so amazed when they peeled the paper and saw the rainbow colors on the wrapper!!

Green Eggs and Ham

Our Green Eggs and Ham was a big hit - they even asked for more!!!!!!

Gotta say in this picture it looks kind of yucky!!   

As we were making our green eggs and ham we were looking at a page of pictures to help us sequence the steps and then I had them cut out the pictures and glue them down in order!

Chubby Little Bunny Wall Story

Here is one of our winter wall stories:

Some of the pictures are hard to see - I choose 1 student a day to "illustrate" our interactive writing piece for the day

Love this illustration!

We are required to post "We can" statements for any work that we display for the hall way.  Since all of my work that I display is done thru interactive writing I posted this blanket statement that covers any type of work that I display in the hall.  Of course it is not just out there for display.  My students use our interactive writing pieces (wall stories) for read the room workstation!  Love it when I can use one lesson for more than one purpose!!!

Ladybug Math

I needed to review our science topic of ladybugs, review addition and put up a February bulletin board (the ladybugs are made out of mostly hearts) and voila I did it all with this one activity.  As we made our ladybugs we reviewed the parts of a ladybug, then during math time we added the spots and wrote an addition sentence to match our spots!!! The results was this adorable bulletin board.
