Happy New Year!!!!!!!!



Hi friends! It sure has been awhile! But after my finals were turned in and school was out, there was nothing but romance novels and bad reality TV going on at my house!! There was a lot of staying up way late and sleeping in even later! But now that I have a week of school with my kiddos down, I am ready to get back in the drivers seat of my blog! Incase you haven’t noticed, take a look at the super cute blog design! I am totally head over heels in love with it!!

Penguin KWL Chart


Anywho in Kindergarten this week we are starting off with Penguins! We started the morning off with a KWL Chart.
We already got an answer after the first book we read! My kids had a LOT of prior knowledge so I am super impressed!


Then we got into some centers!
This center works on sight words. You can write your own words in that is specific to your class’ needs.
