Happy Holidays

Well I have been a little slow on the blog these past weeks.  We were working so hard on getting all our Christmas displays up and the Christmas concert organized I just forgot to post.  I have lots of great pictures to share but they will have to wait until the new year.  Hopefully then I will be able to post more regularly and as I have lots of new ideas.  Happy Holidays and we will get really started in the new year!

Is it really December?

Well today was another day of preparing for the Christmas concert.  We are being adventurist and trying a Glee Mashup of Deck the Rooftop.  It is pretty funny watching the two Kindergarten classes trying to hip hop there way through the song, remembering their actions and the words.  Too cute.  Hopefully all goes well.

Ready or not here I go....

Okay okay...I am a blog junky.  I am always reading other Kindergarten Teachers ideas and finding cool information to try in my class.  I have too many favourites to list them all, but Deanna Jump has become my all time favourite.  As a Canadian K teacher, I am always looking for balance for my class, things that aren't too Grade 1 and not too preschool.  My goal here is to help others looking for ideas and create a monthly overview of what I do.  

In British Columbia, we have just entered the realm of Full Day Kindergarten.  With the first 3 months under our belts we are now starting to get into a great groove.  There were a few skinned knees, literally,and a few tears, by me not just the kids and now were about to enter the Christmas season.  Time for well deserved rest and celebrations.  Lets see where this blog takes us.
