Welcome to the greatest show on earth!

We have been learning all about circus animals and the circus!  Mostly we have used ideas we have been doing for years and beefed it up by learning about some additional zoo animals from Deanna Jump's amazing zoo animal unit!  We wrapped up our unit with our kindergarten circus!  The entire school and all of our kindergarten parents come and watch the circus!  Here is our amazing adventure in pictures!

This is our ringmaster I made on our door to graph our favorite circus act!

Our display outside our room....under the big top!

These are circus tents... they painted and drew themselves and wrote about what they would be doing in the circus!

Our funny clowns!  They loved designing their own faces!

Word wall on our bathroom door!  They used interactive writing to label circus words they would need to use in their writing!

These are fabulous non-fiction books that I found at Barnes and Noble!  They have just the right amount of information for kindergarten kiddos!  I bought all of the animals!!!
My sweet class right before show time! I'm the silly clown in the back!  
May all your days be circus days!!!!

Stephen FIte Concert

I LOVE Stephen Fite!  For several years, I have been lucky enough to see him at Splash in Dallas.  For the past three years, our kindergarten classes have seen him in concert.  We saw him last week and he has a new album!

Little Bird

Have you seen this book? It's SO sweet.  It's about a little bird that gets blown from his nest and meets other animals on his way back home.

Humpty Dumpty

Just a quick little photo of a rhyming project we did this week.
Once the students completed their "Humpty", we brainstormed rhyming words.

This one is my favorite!

I think this idea was from Kimberly Jordano.  As I said before, I've seen her at conferences several times and she is AWESOME!!

We Can Count to 100!

Just a quick post...thanks to Jack Hartmann and YouTube,  my students can count to 100 by ones, fives and tens!  When they accomplish this task, I glue a copy of the child's photos to a copy of a $100 bill with a speech bubble that says, "I can count to 100!". Happy Sunday!
