Catching Up

Hi Teacher Friends!  Here's what we've been up to lately.  As we finished our alphabet studies, we learned about letter Ww and we just had to make this adorable Mrs. Wishy-Washy project.  It is from TLC's People book.  With just a little adjustments (included in the directions), we made Mrs. Wishy-Washy by using the woman pattern from the book.  Here is a link to Kaye's site with her TLC books. We love completing TLC projects in class.  Each one comes out differently and the kids are so proud.  Whenever anyone comes into our classroom, the kids love to show their projects to our classroom visitors.

We are finishing up our Science lessons about plants.  We completed this experiement with celery, water, and food coloring.  I bought two bundles of celery and that was more than enough for each child to have their own stalk of celery for the experiment.  The kids did a great job.  They kept these in the center of their tables and were able to observe these throughout the day.
One of my sweet little kinders brought flags for each classmate in honor of Memorial Day.  The kids were so excited to have their very own US flag to take home.

We are in the final stretches of a great school year.  This is our countdown for the last ten (now 7) days of school.  Inside each balloon is a piece of paper with something fun written on it.  We pop one ballon each morning.  So far we have been able to sit by a friend, leave our shoes off and watercolor paint.  We can't wait to pop the last seven ballons and find out each day what our special activity will be.  This idea was shared by one of the teachers at school last year.  Not sure where she found the original idea to countdown for the last twenty days of school with twenty balloons.  We would love to give credit where credit is due.  The kids loved this so much. 
To all our Oklahoma friends, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
