Each week we study a new letter! This week it was the letter G! We made goldfish and wrote sentences about goats, gardens, and a girl. On Fridays for show and tell the students must bring something that starts with the letter of the week. Some of them bring stuff that doesn't but its ok! One girl was smart about it this week...i am guessing she discussed this with her parents first but she brought a teddy bear in and as she was pulling it out of her book bag she said, "Ms. Brown, um I know this is a bear and bear doesn't start with G but I brought it because my granddad gave it to me and granddad starts with G!" That was some smart thinking through and planning!!! I also asked my sister to come play her guitar on Friday too! She subbed for me a couple of weeks ago so my students were excited to see her again too. She planned to play one song and so I asked her if she wanted to go to the other classes and play for them. She said she would so I went and asked the other teachers. One suggested she play in our pit area for all the classes...so we had a concert!! It was really cute! So Amy thank you so much for being brave and playing your guitar for 80 kindergartners!!!! You are great!

Today was the Kindergarten writing assessment. Since school started we had been working on drawings! In the past 10 days they have come a LONG way! I reminded them this morning that they needed to make sure they included all body parts, the setting like trees and sunshine, and a sentence. The prompt was to write and draw about a friend at school. It was pretty interesting to see what they came up with. I was proud of a lot of their work and really proud of them using words in the classroom. On several papers they wrote words they saw in the classroom like September and Good Morning...they have nothing to do with their friend but at least they are writing words!!! I thought they were really clever when I saw they were looking at their friends name tags sitting around them to know how to spell their name. After they finished I called each one up and had them tell me what their sentence was or who their friend was at school. My favorite was one of my sweet little girls said that her best friend at school was me!!!!!! I let her go to the prize box...then the rest of the students wanted to put that too! She is my new best friend and she will be getting an A+!!!!!
