Last week we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by having a week full of Dr. Seuss related activities!  The first day we started by reading Cat in the Hat and Oh the Places You’ll Go.  We wrote about what we would do to get rid of the cat in the hat, and took pictures of ourselves and made them to look like the cat.  We also made and colored easy readers using the sight word “you”.

Sorry this is so late, things have been busy over here.  A few weeks ago we celebrated Presidents day and we learned about two famous presidents; George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  We read stories about both presidents and read an easy reader  called All About America.

After we read the story about George Washington; we made a list of describing words to describe George Washington and wrote about what we learned.  Finally we made two presidents out of construction paper and cotton balls.  On one side we made George Washington, on the other side we made Abraham Lincoln.

We have been learning about what makes a book fiction or non-fiction.  We read the story “Franklin’s Valentines”, and talked about things that a real turtle can do / things a turtle can’t do.

Then we wrote our own fiction story about an animal of our choice.  Students wrote stories “Elsa the eagle has to fly into space”, “Cutie turned into a giant and destroyed the house”, and “Jodi the zebra goes to the library”.  Finally students made newspaper hearts with watercolor.

This week marks my favorite week, The Polar Express week!  On Monday we read the story and students retold the story by putting pictures in the right order.  They also shared with the class what happened on their part of the story.  Finally they retold the story in correct sequence order by doing a cut and paste activity.

Today students wrote about what they would choose as the first gift of Christmas (A silver bell, pony, and genie bottle).  At the end of the day students created a train glyph, answering questions about trains.

We read the story Christmas Kitten and made a connection with the story by talking about what we want for Christmas.  We made hand print cut outs and wrote what we want for Christmas on the hand print.  We then took the hand print and made them into a Christmas tree.  Finally we made a Santa Has sight word book.

It is apples week in the Kindergarten All-Stars classroom.  We read apple math books like “Ten Red Apples” and “Ten Apples on Top“, and then we created our own apple trees and wrote the number of apples on them.

Then we read the story “The Biggest Apple Ever” and compared that story with “The Biggest Pumpkin Ever“.  Then we made homemade apple cider using a juicer and wrote about the apple cider using describing what it looks like, smells like, and tastes like.
