Nut-Free Lunch Ideas


A friend passed along this website with some great ideas for nut-free school lunches. Great ideas, considering we have two friends in our class with nut allergies. Nut-free Lunch Ideas

Alphabet Chart


We have been singing Jack Hartmann's "Learning Letter Sounds" and "Alphabet Disco" songs and using this alphabet chart to learn letter names and sounds. The kindergartners love music time!

The First Week

We have had a wonderful first week in kindergarten! We have read some wonderful stories, like The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn and Clifford's First School Day by Norman Bidwell. The kids have done a great job of learning our rules, listening and following directions. It is normal for them to be very tired during these first few weeks of school. Hope they can get some rest this weekend, and do something fun! Looking forward to our first full week next week! :)
