Pilgrims and Thanksgiving


I just love how these adorable Pilgrims turned out!  Each one is unique just like the child who created it.  :)
They are big... but I'm from Texas y'all!  



For the writing they wrote about what they would take with them if they sailed on the Mayflower.  I just love Kindergarten writing.  Don't you?  The last one is my favorite!

My cat Zoe because she is sweet.


My American girl doll because I love her.


My Ellie because I love her so "mush".

And my favorite..... cock your head to the left.... I don't know why Blogger does this!  GRRR....


My granny's billy goat because she loves the billy goat.  But first I would have to find it.

Isn't that sweet?  She is thinking about her Granny instead of herself.  Children have the sweetest little hearts!

You can check out my Thanksgiving unit by clicking on the picture below.

P.S. If you are still waiting on the owl glyph to be added to my Owl unit I am so sorry!  My scanner quit working and they didn't have the one I wanted at Office Depot.  I ordered one and it will be here Friday!

Owls and Veteran's Day






We made soldiers in honor of Veteran's Day and created a Bubble Map. These are some of the books we read.  There aren't very many books out there for children about this important holiday.  If you have found one that you like please let  me know!

Veterans Day (Rookie Read-About Holidays)

Blogger isn't cooperating with me tonight y'all!  If you turn your head to the right you can view the pictures that are sideways.  :)

We had a great time learning about owls this week!  I LOVE seeing how excited the kids get about this amazing raptor.  They learn so many new vocabulary words and their parents are always so impressed with what they learn during this unit. 

Owl Tree Maps



Our owl informational books. 









One of our Math journal prompts. 




Y'all know I totally love these schema charts.  If you still haven't read Teaching with Intention by Debbie Miller I highly recommend it!


We illustrated the meaning of a night owl.  One of my sweeties said, "I'm a total night owl! I stay up sooooo late!  My mom doesn't make me go to bed until 9:00!"  Kinders are so stinkin' cute!


These are our owl glyphs.  One of the questions was, Are you a night owl?
Can you spot the owls that belong to the four kids who aren't night owls?  Look closely and you will see their owls SNOOZING in the tree!  I am adding this glyph along with the key and recording sheets to my Owl Packet.  If you've already purchased the unit you can get the revised unit by going to your Purchases folder and downloading the new unit.  Give me until Thursday to get the new stuff added.  :)


Speaking of revising units.... I just finished some new spider stuff and I  added it to my Spider unit on TPT. 
If you've already purchased the unit go and grab the new stuff!  :)
