OK. I admit it. I go a little Halloween crazy. It's just too fun not to with Kinders around!
The kids earned a party, so we had a Spookley the Square Pumpkin party, and made square pumpkin faces for treats!
We also worked on shape pumpkins to practice our shapes, and then described them in writing to practice adjectives! Did you know "unicorny" was an adjective? It is now!
We had our first Book Buddies get-together this week. They will be monthly from now on. Of course... the theme was Halloween! We read a Halloween story, then went to the library where the kinders got to pick out books for their Buddies to read to them. Afterwards we went back into our classroom where the Big Buddies helped the Little Buddies make Pumpkin word family slider games!
And then, of course, what is more fun than making an edible spider?! We love our Book Buddies already! I see the kids saying hi in the halls and playing together on the playground... I am so thankful for Big Buddies who take time to be a friend to a little Kinder. 💕
Last week on our greenhouse tour Ms. Bonnie Emery mentioned she had some cilantro and tomatoes that needed to be picked. Enter: SALSA! We gladly returned Monday morning with buckets in hand to harvest our ingredients!
Then on Tuesday Michele Oldaker and Cody Omta volunteered to come in and help make salsa with the kids. We had the cilantro team, the onion and pepper team, and the tomato team... the onion team was in tears :( . And then we all got together for some great team work and made honestly the best salsa I think I've ever had. It had to have been the one-day old tomatoes fresh from the greenhouse!
Thank you Ms. Bonnie!!!
Here is our secret recipe... but I cannot guarantee results without the greenhouse tomatoes and some kindergarten love mixed in! (Oh yeah, and you gotta triple the garlic!)
