Monster Words







Pack the Place in Pink & Red Ribbon Week

So many students supported Pack the Place in Pink and Red Ribbon Week by wearing pink today.  They looked great!

Monster Goo 5 Senses

After touching, smelling, looking at and listening to the monster goo, students created a poster describing what they experienced.  Tomorrow they will explore a new kind of "monster slime", and will compare and contrast the two substances.

Monster ABCs and 123s

This week in kindergarten we are studying monsters.  The students made monsters and "fed them" words that began with Bb, Mm and Hh.  In our new center the kindergartners sort numbers and letters and "feed them" to the monsters.

Hand Print Pumpkins

The kindergartners made these adorable handprint pumpkins last week.  They rolled a die and added enough pumpkin seeds to match the number rolled.

Our Student of the Month will eat McDonald's lunch with Mrs. McCall on Tuesday the 30th.  Our Student of the Month is a good listener, a good friend to others and always tries his best.  Great job!

Pumpkin Pancakes


Parents, we made pumpkin pancakes in class today and the kindergartners loved them.  After eating the pancakes, we talked about how they tasted and smelled, and compared them to "regular" pancakes.  The kids did a great job of using descriptive words.

Click the image above for a printable copy of the recipe.  You can read this with your child, and have them find words we know.
