Mystery Box

We did our first Mystery Box activity today.  The class loved it and the were thinking about what was in the box all day.  This morning, we read the clues and held the box.  Some even gave the box a gentle shake.  After circle time, everyone drew a picture of what they thought was in the box and whispered to me what they drew.  At the end of the day we looked inside the box we filled out the paper that tells what is in the box and marked if our guesses were right, if we were surprised or if we were disappointed.  Here are some pictures from our first Mystery Box.

Bits and Pieces

I am on the look out for a box with a handle, something similar to what the band chocolates have come in.  If you come across something like this, I would really appreciate it if you could send it to school.  We will be starting a Mystery Box activity in place of Show and Tell after the February break.  More information about this activity will come home before the break.
Book orders are now due Wednesday, February 6.  

Please remember that next week Kindergarten is on Tuesday and Friday so the class can participate in Jump Rope for Heart.

Hot Lunch forms are due Wednesday.  Get your forms in for the Subway hot lunch!

Here is the new song we are singing for the alphabet: Snowball Fight

Chit Chat Homework

Each week we will be completing the Chit Chat page during circle time on the SMART board.  That same day the Chit Chat page will be coming home for you to review with your child at home.  They will need to print the letter in each of the small lines and fill the circle (with your help) with either words or pictures (drawn or from a magazine) of items that being with that letter.  Please return the completed Chit Chat page to school the by the end of the week.  We will be keeping track of who completes their homework in a chart during circle time.
