TK ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 18!Monday found us working on the letter K and focusing on KINDNESS! We played a game where we drew cards that we had to decide if the person on the card was being KIND or UNKIND. Then we thought about a way we could show kindness to someone and made a "Hershey's Kiss" with a picture on it. We hung them in the hallway and are working really hard on showing our classmates and others in our school kindness.
We practiced making capital K and if your child's name starts with a K, they probably need to relearn how to make it as the 2nd stroke starts at the TOP (not the middle) and we make a "karate kick" to finish it. This will help them in making the lowercase k also, since it has a "karate kick" too and it starts at the top of the dotted line in the middle. Just something to keep an eye out for :)
On Wednesday we continued our work on the letter K and had fun watching a video of a newscast done about the Kite Festival they have in Clear Lake, IA! It is so amazing to see the huge and colorful kites that they have! We ooooed and aaahhhed through the whole video. Then we made a colorful kite of our own that we can pull K pictures through. K is definitely not a letter than needs a lot of practice, so luckily we will just hit this one and run!
We also had a major CLEANING/SANITIZING session in our classroom. We used several containers of wipes and just cleaned...everything...especially in our pencil boxes! Every crayon, gluestick, scissor, whatever was in and around us... it got wiped down! Then we moved to the classroom and wiped down doorknobs, some of the center activities, etc. Fingers crossed we can keep the "you know what" away. So far we haven't had too many casualties, we will do what we can in our room to keep it that way!
