We read a cute story about an Elephant and made our letter Ee books to keep at school in our reading box. I had to share what a few of my boys did today at center time. There are tons of toys to choose from....trains, legos, blocks, etc....but instead they chose to go to the writing table and write me letters for my mailbox!! OK.....seriously.....don't you just love it???!!! Choosing to write over playing with toys??!! I love teaching and I love trying to make learning fun so they do make these choices!! Check out Jack's handwriting.... Pretty good, huh?! All of the students love to make something for me to put in my mailbox but I told them it can not be delivered unless it has my name on it and who it is from. (I am pretty sneaky about it but they are getting lots of practice and they don't even know it!! hee!)
Ella brought the cutest elephant cookies from our favorite bakery The Mixing Bowl!! Sorry...but I couldn't resist a shout out to my good friend Mary Bertram!! ;) When Ella was passing out her cookies the kids were shouting...."Hey Ella, your name starts with E just like elephant!!" Aren't they smart??!! Thanks Ella for the fun snack! :)
We read a story about shapes and then we sorted shapes at circle time. Finally, we did a worksheet where we had to find all of the triangles.
Ella brought me this adorable pumpkin today!! Isn't her mommy crafty??!! Thank you so much for making me feel special today!! :)
