We Love Center Time...

We usually have very busy days in Kindergarten. One of our favorite times of the day is "Center Time". We get to choose to play from a lot of different areas. Some kids like going to the Block Corner, others like to go to the Writing Center. Some kids like to go to Housekeeping. You can choose to make paper puppets, draw, do puzzles, play with Math games, ABC games, write notes to friends, go on the computer, read books and so much more. The only thing you can't do is NOTHING! With so many choices, everyone needs to be busy doing SOMETHING!

Paper Puppets...

We are having so much fun making Paper Puppets! Our teacher used her Gypsy & Cricut machine to create some puppet templates for us to trace. We got to pick out some of the clothing and costumes too. We use the templates and paper scraps to make our puppets. Then we glue them on sticks and head over to our puppet stage. What creative fun!

Nursery Rhymes...

We really enjoy reading and playing around with Nursery Rhymes. Sometimes we change some of the rhyming parts of the Nursery Rhymes and make new rhymes that make us really giggle. Other times we act out the parts, that's fun too!
We are working on getting a post together for our blog that shows some of what we do with the rhymes. In the meantime, here are some of the rhymes we've worked with:
