Well, big announcement time!!!!  I am moving to PRESCHOOL next year!!!!  I am so excited, and I can't wait!!  I love teaching preschool and that is the whole reason why I went into early childhood education.  I am already working on things for next years classroom.  I just can't wait!!  I will definitely miss the independence that come with Kindergarten.  These kids have me spoiled.  I have some of the BEST kids a teacher could ask for this year.  Yes, we have our days, but these kids love me and I love them.  Yesterday, I had to take off half a day because I have poison ivy.  Today when I came back (yes, I double checked with the doctor and I am clear to come back, two shots and 2 prescriptions later.) my kids were so worried about me.  As they reached the door, they had get well cards for me.  They were all asking about how the Dr. visit went, and they just HAD to know about the 2 shots I got.  They were looking at my neck, and commenting on how much better it looked.  They really were worried about me.  It completely made my day.  I honestly have the sweetest class EVER!!  I received flowers and kindergarten "tips" on how to feel better.  These of course cracked me up.  Lil girl - Ms. Britney, you should go see the nurse, she works MIRACLES!!  Lil boy - Ms. Britney, my mom works next door at the nursing home, just walk over there, ask for her, and I just know that she will make you better!!!!  This is exactly why I teach!!  These kids know that I love them, and they show me that they love me!! 

I will be posting sometime today or tomorrow to catch everyone up on what all we have been learning about.  I just couldn't resist posting about how AWESOME my class was!!  These are my baby's and I want the whole world to know how great they are!!

I'm BACK!!!!

Well, I guess it's time to post again.  I am sorry, but I have just been so busy.  I know that I have been slacking on posting, especially since the last time I posted was DECEMBER.  So my next post will be a catch up, super-long, picture post.

Here we are playing our 1 fish 2 fish game.  They had to roll 2 die and add the numbers.  When they filled up the entire board, they ate the goldfish.

Here is our cat and the hat word family art.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday we ate GREEN EGGS and HAM!!!!

It looked really gross, but when we finally tasted it, they were delicious.

We recently participated in a project by Jen.  We took the Lucky Charms cereal challenge.

We had to separate the Oak Piecesand the marshmallow Pieces.

Next we had to graph the different marshmallow shapes.

After we did that, we counted each shape, and wrote how many we had.

Finally we used that to make tally marks to show how many of each shape we had.  We turned our numbers in, and got to see how many other people across the world had participated in the project.

We planted a Banana Tree!!

Mr. John helped us dig a hole, and hold the tree.

We got to use our STRONG muscles.

On the 100th day of school we had so many activities to do.  We made a GIANT bubble gum machine with 100 pieces of gum.

We also made a Giant ICE CREAM cone, and counted by 5's to 100.

Finally, we made a giant Pizza with 100 toppings.

We had so many activities that day!!  We even had a special guest fly in!!  ZERO the HERO!!

He danced and sang songs with us.

For Easter, we sorted our jelly beans, and we separated them by colors.

Next we graphed them.

We also used them to make patterns.

Here is our jelly bean graph.

Our Tally sheet.

Here are our patterns.

Our beautiful flowers.

We also made a flower, and labeled the parts.  We even wrote the things that plants need to survive.

Well, for now, I guess that is all I have.  I will try to keep up with the blog again.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
