I can’t believe that I have not posted in a while.  I really think I kind of needed a little break!  But now I am back and ready to move forward!

Here’s a little Kindergarten humor for you!

As most of you know..I spend tons of my time with 5 year olds.  We are currently learning about Arkansas.  I was reading a book and telling them that the Arkansas state beverage is milk.  I followed that up with…”You know milk comes from cows, right?”  Most of them did say yes.  I had one that said, “How do they do that?!?!”  Another responded..Umm, yea!  “It comes from their gutters!” 

Of course, I had to chuckle!  Never a dull moment in Kindergarten!

I am going to try to post a fun and educational activity each week that you could PLAY or PRACTICE with your child/children.

I found this one on Growing Kinders.

This is played like you would play hangman.  Only, using snowman pieces!   I have been playing this whole group with my Kinder kids.  They LOVE IT!  I have been using past and current sight words as my mystery words.  The words are short, but some of them are really getting good at using our word wall to help them figure out the mystery word.

Here is a pic. of the snowman that I made. 


Let me know if you play this game with your kids and if they enjoyed it!
