Boy am I tired! First full week is exhausting! Thank goodness for a 3 day weekend.
Besides learning our rules and expectations & building our classroom community,
we have been all over learning about colors and shapes this week. Check out some of the fun things we did this week. The shape ideas can be found in my Tip Top Shapes unit.
Aren't these adorable? I just love the way they turned out!
These were so fun! First, they chose their favorite shape in their favorite color. Girls got sprinkles (confetti) and boys got whipped cream (shaving cream and glue mixture). Everyone got a cherry for the top.

We will complete one of these for 11 colors. I like these for so many reasons...tracing, writing, coloring, cutting on lines, & drawing skills. By the time they do a few they get the hang of the basic skills and can focus on ordering the letters correctly to build the color word. After doing 11 of them, they are pros! I feel this gets my kinders in the "completing center work" mode. These are in my Colors & Shapes with Brown Bear.
Last, we have been practicing, practicing, practicing basic skills. This is great for those little ones who have never used glue before. It's a great visual of how "using glue" should look. My students love the "sparkly surprise" every time! This can be found in my School's in Session unit.
Happy Weekend Friends!
