A Happy Little Harvest!

 We had such a great Harvest Day in Kindergarten last week!  We started with a great Reformation chapel, where we learned more about Martin Luther and his work to help people know about God's free gift of grace for all.
 Then, our chapel buddies joined us for some fun in the classroom.  We colored, made fun ghost chains, and had yummy snacks, too!
 Finally, we wrapped up the day with party games and crafts, more good snacks, and a costume parade through the school!  Whew!  It was so much fun!  I hope everyone had some energy left afterward, for trick-or-treating!!??   :)

Safety First!

We had a special visitor in Kindergarten this week.  Firefighter Mark dropped in with his annual fire safety message and, as always, his visit was a big hit!  October is Fire Prevention Month, so we've been talking a lot about fire safety.  Our friends were ready to talk some more about having an escape plan, "stop, drop, and roll," and especially about how firefighters are our friends.  Firefighter Mark always does a great job connecting with the students, and he makes learning this important information fun.  Thank you, Firefighter Mark, for being our connection to these valuable First Responders!

Manipulate This!

We LOVE math centers!  The freedom to count, sort, build, and create with our math manipulatives is super exciting.  Today we used shapes to make pictures, sorted bugs by color and shape, and built a fortress with our number blocks.  Learning through play makes a fun day in Kindergarten!

Move Your Body!

We have a lot of fun moving to our GoNoodle app in the classroom each day, and our Kinder Friends will tell you that this way to "get the wiggles out" is our favorite!  We also use music and dance for other times, too.  Today we used the call and repeat words of "Father Abraham" during Jesus Time to move our bodies and learn about God's Promises to Abraham.  We like to "move it, move it!"  LOL

Soggy Fun at the Farm!

We dodged the big rain, and had a great time at Weiss Centennial Farm in Frankenmuth!  Mrs. Weiss introduced us to two corn mazes, one about Germany and Martin Luther, and the other about the farming process.  We were excited to find all of the stations and fill our cards with the information we learned at each stop.  We went on a hay ride, saw the milking cows, and had a blast playing at the many different play stations set up in the corn maze area!  The day was capped with a picnic lunch, under the pavilion.
