Happy Halloween 2016

These kindergartners had a busy and fun Halloween 2016!

Our day began with the story Nightsong by Ari Berk Image result for nightsong a bat story 
It is about a little bat who uses his good sense to go out an explore the world.  We will continue to learn about bats this week!

Next the students used pictures and words to help them read and retell the story
 I found this printable book at 

Then the students and I went into the computer lab where we continued our word study. You can find the educational sites in the reading section of my school district website. We Are Readers in Kindergarten After snack our day continued with with a  activity. It was so cool to see the different bats that they created using letters of the alphabet! Thanks Abby Mullins.

Our morning ended with an introduction to our next Chapter in Math. This chapter focuses on Counting and Cardinality. The essential question is "How Do We Show How Many?"
Our bashful bat activity built the understanding of how to use objects or illustrations to recognize numbers 1, 2 and 3.

After lunch we continued our math lesson with Halloween Ghost Math. The students needed to recognize numbers 3-12. 

Then it was time for a little Brain and Body Break!

As we finished our Brain and Body Break Mrs. Lindner, from our Pelican PAC, arrived at the door with our pizzas, breadsticks and juice boxes. We earned a pizza party from the STRUT for FUNd fundraiser. Prior to passing out the food the students had fun making their Candy Corn Floats! Our day ended with our HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARADE in the gym. A special thank you to Mrs. Zoncki for volunteering in the classroom this morning and then again this afternoon!

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween evening! 
See you all tomorrow!
