Working on Writing!

We have been working on writing together for about a week. Today, our students worked on their October writing sample for their portfolios... We call Our Smile Binder. 😊 We praise every attempt! They did a great job!

We had a blast on our last field trip of the year Tulsa Zoo!! It is really a study trip our students go on a scavenger hunt to find all the things we have learned about!

Prior to our learning adventure, we studied Native Americans of the Plains! We celebrated our study with a study trip and then a Native American Supper. Woolaroc was a FREE field trip provided by OERB so our two classes were the only kindergarten classes that were able to attend. It was amazing and so was the rich learning during our study!

100 Days SMARTER!

We celebrated our 100th day of kindergarten on Tuesday. I wasn't sure we would ever get there with so many snow days. 😊 We made books about being 100 and 100 things, we made hats, a 100 item snack, a snack with doughnuts and twinkles, a necklace with 100 front loops and LOTS of fun! Oh and... Our cuties came dressed like they were 100 years old. Cutest thing EVER!

Thankful and Blessed!

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving Break so much!!  We did actually work at school this afternoon after church but the rest of break was spent with family or preparing for Christmas (that would be Black Friday all night shopping). In November, we began our World Tour. We spent time in Mexico, Sweden, England and France. (Not REALLY in the countries but learning about each one for several days.) We had a fabulous English Tea... See pics below! In December, we will continue our traveling adventures in Italy, Australia and Germany. The week before break is spent on elf projects and Polar Express! 

As you know, if you have read about us, we are very close friends and much more than just teaching partners. In all honesty, Kelly and I are really more like sisters than friends. Our kids are like cousins and we choose to spend time together as often as possible. Kelly makes me a better person... not just a better teacher. 😊 Okay, okay... I will stop with the sap. We spent our third Thanksgiving in a row together this year with our families. It is pretty awesome to teach with your best friend but it is even greater to share holidays together. We are thankful and blessed!
