I made name puzzles for my kindergarten classes in the past-it worked well-the kids always thought it was fun and it helped students to recognize their name and the letters in their name as well as their friends' names. I thought it would be great to try out with the class! The name puzzles consist of a card with each child's name and individual post its-each with a letter of the name. The child has to put the name together with the help of the name card. The class loved them and they were so proud of making their name and then making their friends' names! The name puzzles are now a part of our writing center!
While next week will be a short week-it's going to be quite a busy week. Tomorrow evening, Monday, November 21st from 5:30pm-7:30pm will be T.O.A.S.T's Annual Turkey Shoot out! All teachers will be there helping out with lots of fun activities! I will be helping out at the first grade hoop if anyone would like to come by and say hi! Make sure to stop with your children for lots of fun and tons of opportunities to win things!
Tuesday will be our Thanksgiving feast in the classroom! Parents and family members are invited to attend! Our feast will be from 11:00am-12:00pm. Report cards will be also be distributed!
Wednesday is no school for students. Parent teacher conferences will be taking place. We sent home a letter with the finalized conference times on Friday!
I am so excited for our feast on Tuesday! In preparation, I am learning how to roast my very first turkey! To brine or not, to stuff or not-I'm crossing my fingers for a delicious turkey for the class! Here is the updated menu for our feast. Let me know if you would like to contribute anything! :)
