Below are some of the projects students have made at the beginning of the year.
Students each had the first letter of their name at their table on Open House night. They could decorate these however they wanted with stickers and markers. I have some very neat artists in my classroom!
This week Mrs. Frankl came to our classroom and read Have you Filled a Bucket Today? It is a wonderful book that basically teaches students that when they make right choices they fill joy in their lives as well as bring joy to others in the process. It was a hard concept for 5 and 6 year olds to grasp but they managed to learn the lesson! We have continued this week to talk about ways we can fill each other's buckets! Thank you Mrs. Frankl!

We were word detectives this week at school. Last week students looked for words in our classroom. This week we looked for words in our school and today we looked for words around the outside of our school. Students used their word finders (Dixie cups on a string) to help them find lots of words!
Students looking for words. What we didn't know was that there was grease on the rope they are touching! EWWWW!!!!! Our hands were dirty!
These students are working quietly at the listening center.
These students are working at the block center.
Well, our first week of school went really well. We had 7 students come on each of the first 3 days of school. Everyone came to school on Thursday and Friday which makes Miss Workman's class a grand total of 21 students! It has been great getting to know all of my new students and we are off to a great start this school year!
