Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Look who’s in our classroom!

What a great first week we have had welcoming our JK boys to our classroom. We have had fun reading about our letters through Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and getting to know new friends in our class! We are learning friends’ names and focusing on the letters in our own names. Making name necklaces, watercoloring our names, and name puzzles have been helpful activities! 

It was such a treat when Astro left us a clue to begin a scavenger hunt!  We visited Mrs. Todd's office, talked to Mr. Hancock, and checked out the gym and Special Area classrooms before our last clue led us to letter cookies…what a fun snack!

We learned to build Mat Man out of wood pieces, which we later will utilize to build capital letters in JK. After making Mat Man’s portrait, we created our own self-portraits! They will be turned into a special book to share in our classroom very soon.

We have introduced the rules and procedures in our classroom and will continue to review over the next few weeks.

We are off to a wonderful start in JK and can’t wait for next week!
