Sight Word Fun...

We have been busy learning sight words in class. We write them, spell them, color them and more. One of our favorite ways to practice them is to make them out of playdough!

PS...Thanks Mrs. Kramer for creating this fun activity for us to enjoy! ;-)

llama, llama in pajamas...

We really love the llama, llama books. There is something about llama, llama and all his drama that keeps us smiling! If you have not read them yet, they are a "Must Read" for this age group!  On Thursday, October 7, 2011, we joined hundreds of Kindergartners all over the country in hearing the book "llama llama Red Pajama" written by Anna Dewdney. We were trying to help set a new world record. Mrs. Kendryna, our principal came in and read the book to us. We love to help find the rhyming words. After the story, we brainstormed all the different types of pajamas we could think pajamas, pink, orange, yellow, green, polka-dot, hearts, stripes, plaid, etc. Then we got a llama in pajamas template, some markers and a few crayons and got busy designing pajamas. We are using the pictures we created to make a HUGE class book that we can read and share all year long. Take a look at the fun we had and the wonderful creations we made:

We don't know if we set a world record for the number of students hearing the same book on the same day or not, but we sure had fun trying! ;-) here to go to YouTube see and hear the author, Anna Dewdney read llama, llama Red Pajama!
