Farm and Apple Fun!

My husband would say that he's glad there's only one of me.  But, I can't tell you how great it would be if I could clone myself during the first 9 weeks of school.  I am sure you guys feel the same way!  Once the first 9 weeks are over and the kids know all of the routines it is smooth sailing.  I can't wait for the day that I don't hear little voices calling out, "Mrs. Jump" 100 times.  I told my little sweeties that I was going to change my name and one of them said in a worried voice, "But then we won't know who you are!"  Aren't kindergartners adorable???  I am in love with all 23 of them.  Even the little stinkers!  :)

Here are some pictures of some of the types of things we do during our farm unit. 






Our PIG tree map initial sounds sort... sorry it is so wrinkled!  I kept forgetting to take my camera to school so I folded it up and brought it home when we were finished with it.

Our interactive apple chart....yep....wrinkled for the same reason.  :)


student art project for the apple poem.


Which Apple is Your Favorite? Picture graph and data analysis

Making Predictions based on the story clues.  I love the book, Who's in the Shed?  by Brenda Parkes.
It is hard to find but it is a great one!

We read, The Flea's Sneeze and Baa-Choo and compared the stories.

Our Mud bubble map


We used the adjectives from our bubble map to write a Mud Poem.  (the poem idea was originally from Victoria at Kinderkorner).

We made mud (chocolate pudding) and wrote the steps in our piggy books.


My Halloween unit was one of the first ones I created for TPT.  I've added a few new things to it including the Frankie Friend glyph below.  If you've already purchased the unit you can get the revised one by going to your Downloads folder and redownloading it (no charge).  The price of this unit is still only $5.  To check it out you can click on the picture below.

Also, the Fall centers packet that I created with Julie Lee is almost finished.  She is patiently waiting on me to finish my part.  It will be finished by tomorrow!  
I'm also working on:

Putting all of the spelling chunk cards in one file (per popular request) they will be posted here for free as soon as I finish.

October Math journal prompts will be finished and posted to TPT by next week.
Scarecrow and Pumpkins Mini unit (adorable scarecrow... I can't wait to show you!)

Someone asked me which font I use the most in my units and I can't find the email.  If you're reading this the font I use the most is Doodle Basic.  You can get it by clicking on the pink button at the top left of my blog.

Thanks so much for all of the prayers for my brother J.R.  He is getting better and we hope to have him home soon!  Have a GREAT week!

Classroom Rules and Misc. Freebies

Hey Y'all!  I have had a crazy few weeks and I just haven't had the time to take pictures and blog like I want to.
I have the sweetest class but shoo wee... you know how exhausting Kindergarten sweeties are at the beginning of the year!
My sweet brother, J.R. is in the hospital so please pray for him.  He has an infection and he just needed a little bit of extra care. 
Anyway,  I wanted to drop in and post a few freebies and let y'all know what I'm working on.  We start our 2nd week of Farm tomorrow so I will be posting lots of pictures and ideas this week.  I hope to have my Fall Farm unit finished by Wednesday.  I'm also working on adorable new book unit for the book, Where's My Mummy?   Look for it by the end of the week!

Okay, so on to the freebies.  Click on the picture to download the classroom rules posters.


This is a fun color song we do during our colors unit.  I'm not sure where the song came from originally but we love it.  It is to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.  You can click on the cover to download the book.



Random....
This is an anchor chart that we created for Writer's Workshop.  We brainstormed a list of things we could write about.

One of our CHIT CHAT messages.



Okay friends, so sorry about the quick low quality post but I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten about you!  I will post better pictures and freebies this week.  I promise!  :)
