We had a busy month

On this last day of November, we took some time to reflect on all the wonderful things we did during the month. We were busy! 


We have started our unit about gingerbread today. The Gingerbread man game was a fun addition to choice time.

A new math game

We had so much fun playing the domino parking lot game today.

Library time!

We just love going to visit Mrs.Ginalski and Mrs. McQuade in the library. Today Mrs. Ginalski read us two stories about chicken little. Then we got to check out a book. 

Our Thanksgiving Feast

We were very excited to have our Thanksgiving feast with our big partners today. We had a delicious meal together and then got to play outside together. What a treat!

We are ready!

We were super busy today to get ready for our Thanksgiving feast at lunch tomorrow. We made placemats, centerpieces for the tables in the lunchroom and turkey hats (tune in tomorrow for pictures of those). They are super cute!

Four Winds

Today Mrs. Brown and Ms. Rebecca visited us for Four Winds.We learned a lot about how logs decompose. Did you know that it takes 12 years for a log to turn into dirt? We enjoyed a puppet show, a visit from a scientist and examining a log to find creatures. What a great lesson. Thanks ladies!

Our author's celebration

We enjoyed reading our books to our class and putting our books on the author shelf.

We are authors / Big partners

Today we got to celebrate our writing with our big partners. They read their writing to us and then we read our writing to them! Then we played a fun game of four corners. We love our big partners!

Choice time

Play is a very important part of our Kindergarten day. We are making creations at the art table, playing with the house and dolls, using play-doh and playing with trains. Our imaginations are at work!

Butterflies and Caterpillars

In Art with Mrs. Rickner, we painted awesome caterpillars and butterflies. They are hanging in the C-wing hallway for all to see!

We've been busy!

The very lonely firefly

We used sparkly bandages to create fun fireflies.

Our wonderful Eric Carle inspired zoo

We worked extremely hard to paint, color and glue to create awesome animals. We are so proud of our work!

Four Winds

Mrs. Brown and Ms. Rebecca are our wonderful Four Winds teachers. In October, we learned about dirt and worms. 

Big Partner pumpkins

We made pumpkin glyphs with our big partners. We chose the design for our pumpkin based on our answers to questions. 

We had a visitor today 11/4/15

We had a visit from Carolyn Knight, a member of the Bristol Rescue Squad. She gave us a tour of an ambulance and showed us all of the closets and equipment. She told us that if we ever have to ride in an ambulance, it is less scary if we ask questions so we know what is going on.

Visit to the firehouse

As part of our Wellness class, we had the chance to visit the Bristol fire station with Mrs. Wisell. We learned all about how to be safe and what equipment firefighters use.

Our visit to Lester Farm

On Monday, October 26, the Kindergarten classes went to visit Lester Farm in New Haven.

We got to go on a hay ride, solve a crossword puzzle in the corn maze and choose a pumpkin to take home to our family. 

It was a great fall day.

Our spider party

On Friday, October 30, we celebrated the end of our Eric Carle unit with a Very Busy Spider party. 

We began our day with a fun whole Kindergarten morning meeting and large spiderweb greeting. We did spider math with ten frames and made spider hats.

In the afternoon, we had our celebration. We created yummy brownie spiders, made thumbprint spider books, a spider web and a number 8 spider. It was so much fun!
