Mrs. Henderson’s Class 

I love Thanksgiving! We begin our Thanksgiving unit by learning about homes. We learn about the different types of homes around the world and how people build their homes based on the materials around them. We end this week talking about the type homes that the Pilgrims and Indians lived in. We use The Three Little Pigs to kick-off "homes" week.  Each child drew a pig and then chose to either dip it in the shaving cream and paint mixture or paint it. They did a great job! I always encourage them to draw using the different shapes seen in the object being drawn. It's difficult to get them started at the beginning of the year but by this time no one even says, "I can't” anymore!

Read for the Record

BSLK participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record on October 3rd All 470 kindergarteners joined millions of people across the United States in reading Otis by Loren Long.  Our students enjoyed listening to the story while sitting under the tree with “Otis.”  Otis is an old red tractor who befriends a baby calf.  It’s a heartwarming story of friendship.  The students also jumped hay bales and played ring around the rosie…just like Otis does in the story!  Jumpstart's mission is to work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.

Bulletin Board compliments of Monica Hill.  Ms. Monica is amazing with bulletin board ideas, this is one of three of her creations currently decorating our hallways.
