OK, here's my first linky entry:
1.Number Flowers from Miss Kindergarten. We had fun working with numbers to create these cute flowers.
2. We read a lot of animal books this week, two of which were Is your Mama a Llama? and Are You my Mother? After some lively didiscussions about our mothers, the Kinders wrote about them in their journals. They LOVE to read their writing on the white board!
3. Name your sorting rule! We spent lots of time sorting all sorts of things - ourselves, manipulatives, etc. In this activity students sorted animal pictures and stated their sorting rule.

4. More sorting. The kids had fun sorting their shoes! What made this activity really fun was the fact that they got to TAKE OFF THEIR SHOES! I love Kinders - the simplest things make them happy. This was a tricky activity because they had to agree on their sorting rules. (Not always easy for 4 - 5 kids to do...)
full of sorting bins. I took out a variety of sortable objects, set them around the room, and gave partners three minutes to sort. They were given free reign on how to sort, but were required to tell me their sorting rules. When the timer went off, they picked up and moved to the next bin. Here are some of the sorting rules they came up with. What smarties I have! <3
5. The view from my back porch Thursday evening. (Looking over my neighbor's hay field - the clouds look like water...) Full moon + the day before a 3 day weekend + almost the end of the school year... enough said :-)
Flying into First Grade is hosting another fun linky where we get to introduce our bloggy friends. I actually only know three bloggers - my beautiful daughters! Sarah has a kindergarten blog, Emily has an author blog, and Gabrielle has a fashion/lifestyle blog. I would love to get to know some other bloggers. If anyone is interested in contacting me, I would love to hear from you!
Here are links to my girls' blogs.
