 We had a great spirit week!  Our class was in full spirit mode all week! It was so much fun to see them SO excited about coming into school in their awesome outfits every day! 

Pajama day was so epic, I caught them sleeping on the job!

Everyone looked so adorable in their blue!

Yesterday we dressed like something that started with the first letter of our first or last name!

And today we showed our EPIC school spirit!!

The kids had a blast at the parade and they were such good listeners there!  I was really proud of how they handled the chaos of the parade!  They each have a brown bag with candy in their backpack!

We even got to see one of my personal kiddos!  She threw us A LOT of candy!

What a Fun First Week!


We have had such a fun time learning together so far this school year.   We are working really hard to learn the routines and rules of kindergarten.  A big struggle we are having right now is respecting each other's personal space.  We are especially having a hard time keeping our hands to ourselves when we are in line.  We will continue to work on this!  

We have had so much fun learning and playing in our classroom.  We started learning our letters and are working really hard to write and spell our name.  

This activity was extra tricky because we had to use our fine motor skills to rip SO MUCH paper.  We were tired at the end, but we did not give up!

In math this week we are working on sorting!  They were all really good at sorting the sorting bears by color!

Today we got to get out the parachute!  We had to run underneath it and find letter bean bags and run out speedy fast!  There was a lot of laughing and giggling!  We also worked together as a team to spin the parachute like a clock!

Here are some fun pictures of us during free play time too!  We are making lots of new friends!

Hopefully as things calm down a bit, I will be able to snap some more fun pictures to share.

Welcome to the 22-23 School Year


I am so excited to begin a new school year with your child soon!  This year is going to be a great year and I can't wait to get to know you and your child soon!  Right now, I am busy getting everything ready for your kiddo to have a successful start to kindergarten.  

A Few Important Dates: 
August 16th:  Meet the Teacher Night- 5:00pm.  Meet in the field behind Clark School. 
August 17th: First Day of Kindergarten.  School begins at 8:00am

At meet the teacher night I will have a folder of information for you, including some important information about our class.  You can read the digital version here.  In addition to this, you will find a log in sheet for Seesaw which will be the easiest way for you to communicate with me throughout the day and a questionnaire so I can get to know your child better.  I will also post pictures of your child there as well.   I would suggest book marking the classroom blog, as I try my best to keep it updated with out fun learning adventures throughout the year.  It is also fun to share the blog with grandparents so they can see what their grandkids are up to as well!

Please bring your child's school supplies with you to meet the teacher night.  This will make the first day much easier!

I have snacks to get us through our first couple of days of school, but if you can grab a snack for the class and bring it to Meet the Teacher Night or on the first day I would really appreciate it! 

If you have any questions or concerns before then, please feel free to reach out via email ( and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 

This year is going to be a "llama' fun!

Bubble Day!!!

 When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!  The kiddos were super bummed it was raining and we wouldn't be able to do bubble day today.  When I saw the weather forecast for today, I came up with a plan and made it work the best I could.  We had indoor bubble day with the help of my 13 year old daughter Natalie.   We did bubble art by blowing colored bubbles onto paper!  We also played under the bubbles of the bubble machine in our classroom for a little bit as well!  It is hard to believe we only have one day left together!

The Floor is LAVA!!!!!!


We had a BLAST at Floor is Lava Day today!  This morning they came into DANGER!!!!  Students had to come into the classroom very carefully because lava had taken over!  Once they were in, we split into groups.  Students had to work together to build a volcano taller than them with solo cups.  They also had a teamwork activity where they had to build animals using pattern blocks....the only problem, was that the pattern blocks were on the other side of the room and they were only allowed to get one block at a time!  They also learned how to draw lavas and they got to play in our amazing dinosaur sensory bin!  

Tomorrow the weather does not look promising for bubble day.  If the rain comes like the weather man is saying, we will have some fun with balloons inside our classroom instead.  

We have graduation practice tomorrow morning.  Please make sure your child gets to school on time so they can attend the practice.  Graduation is tomorrow night at the high school.  The ceremony starts at 6 pm.  Please have your child to the band room no later than 5:45 as we need to fit their hat to their head once they arrive.
