Learning is Fun!

Miss Chamblee’s class has been having a blast this year!  They have learned so much!  They recently learned all about Thanksgiving.  Here they are pretending to be pilgrims on the Mayflower.  They decided it wouldn’t be very fun to be on the Mayflower; check out those faces!

Here they are sharing things they learned with their friends in the “Wagon Wheel” game!  It’s such a fun game; they didn’t even realize they were learning from one another.

They have also been learning numbers and number words!  Here are some friends playing a game, matching numbers with number words.

Miss Chamblee and Mrs. Mosley teamed up to fight bullies!
Meet Super Shape and Alphabet Woman.

Christmas Activities

Here you can see Mrs. Holcomb’s class is busy gearing up for the Christmas holidays. They spend several weeks on various Christmas themes and this year Mrs. Holcomb kicked off the holiday season with Santa Claus. They made a TLC Santa, wrote about what they would do if Santa got stuck in their chimney AND they had some fun making their own Santa faces. Check out these busy little elves!
Happy Holidays from Mrs. Holcomb’s Class!

Perfect Attendance

For our last nine weeks we put all of the names that had perfect attendance in a hat and drew a name. Mr. Todd Lunsford from State Farm Insurance helped sponsor this event by donating a bicycle to the student who's name was drawn.  Thank you to Mr. Lunsford!

Guadalupe Bravo won a bicycle! 

She had to be at school everyday and have perfect attendance.  We had a bicycle parade.  Guadalupe got to ride up and down the hall to show all of her friends her new bicycle.  It was so much fun!!!!!!

Thanksgiving Fun!

Mrs. Henderson’s boys and girls have been learning all about Thanksgiving. During center time, the children completed Pilgrim and Indian jobs so that they could compare and contrast how their lives were different. Some of the things the boys and girls did were sew, stuff mattresses, pick berries, carry water buckets on their shoulders, fish, and plant corn. They realized that it was much more difficult to be a Pilgrim or Indian. The children got to turkey bowl for math to help learn how to add numbers together. They also learned about homes and how they are built. They read the Three Little Pigs to go along with the theme. The children made the three pigs houses at the end of the unit.  Wow, just look at the fun and they learned so much!!!!

Fun with Mrs. P. Brown's Class

Mrs. Pam Brown's class has had lots of fun over the last few weeks!  They have had Teddy Bear parties, gone to the Pumpkin Patch, and participated in Apple Week, just to name a few things.  Some of their favorite things about fall are: apple cider, teddy bear tea parties, and going on a bear hunt (oh, no bears, of course!)  They also loved going to the Pumpkin Patch and having a fun time with each other.


Pumpkin Patch Fun

Mrs. Charlotte Chamblee's class had a great day at the Pumpkin Patch.  It was a fun way to kick off our Fall unit and October activities.  The boys and girls rode the cow train, worked in the barn, loved all the animals and played in the corn crib.  But the most important task of the day was to pick the "Perfect Pumpkin" and we did!  What a FUN day!

Mrs. Bouldin's class had an awesome week describing themselves and their friends with the theme "All About Me"!  

"We have talked about our names, our homes, our city, and anything else that we feel is important to us. Check us out improving our fine motor skills by tearing paper and creating our rainbow names."

Fruits & Colors

Mrs. Andrea Barclift’s Class enjoyed tasting a variety of fruits to go along with our recent color days.  They graphed their favorite and least favorite items.  They made comparisons and learned some new Math vocabulary words!  Thanks to all the parents for sending the fruits for each color! Yummy fun!

Color Week!

Mrs. Bearden's Class is having so much fun learning about colors. We read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do you See? By Bill Martin Jr./Eric Carle. We painted, made a texture book and made rainbow hair! Kindergarten is just beginning and we are learning so much. There is just so much to learn this year we can't wait!
