In the Garden...

I just LOVE this time of year!  My k-friends have learned SO MUCH already!  I can just see those little brains working overtime. Almost all of my friends are reading and writing at some level and I am SO excited about it!  I have been blessed this year with a class that truly loves one another (and me) and will go out of the way to help each other...such peacemakers!  I love the kindergarten age, when the kids love you matter what kind of day we have, in the end we all love and take of one another, and I love it!  I was told not too long ago by one of my students that, "Miss Chamblee you are awesome!  You are a NINJA teacher!"  I am guessing this is a compliment, but I can say it was definitely a first. :) 
 This week we learned  all about plants....check out all the fun we had!
Reading during small groups...each kid got to use this super cool phone to read to me. :)

I loved how some of my kids thought these were Santas.

How many seeds can you pick in 10 seconds...still working on that timer thing. :)

This was interesting to see if the kids noticed the two different sets of numbers.  Almost every one of them got it right!

Reading bossy-e words and illustrating.  I LOVE illustrating words... it works not only on reading but vocabulary and comprehension!

Picking flowers and using sight words to write a sentence.  We still need to work on sentence conventions (uppercase letters at the beginning of the sentences and periods/question marks at the end).

Our pocket chart story.

Predicting what will happen with our seeds in different situations.  If you like this, you can get it or free from my TPT store!  Just click here and download!

I absolutely LOVE these garden gnomes!  We talked about things that could hurt our garden and decided what our gnomes would protect our garden from. :)

Writing facts for our garden.

This was so easy and it turned out so cute!  I laid out the materials and the kids made one at a time.  It only took about 30 minutes. :)

The next few pictures are from our transportation week.  I forgot to post, but they were too cute not to.
 This is our school-wide transportation mural... SO cute!
The blimps our class made.

This was the finished product of our transportation mural.
