The k-kids had their first music class and they enjoyed that! We also were busy today discussing letter names and identifying shapes. Later, I set up centers where they went to to do learning activities.
At story time I read them a book about me that showed photos and told about me during my years in elementary school. They were surprised at the kindergarten page when it said that I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up! I think it is good for them to see that their teacher was also a child at one time.
They had quiet time today too. During quiet time, they lie down and relax a bit while listening to music. They don't have to sleep, but just wind down a bit.

Later I did a little magic show. I mixed colored water together to make new colors. They were impressed. Then one child asked me if I could disappear. Ha-ha!
|The young students are working on identifying the colors and color words. For those that already know them, I challenge them to learn which color is created when mixing two together. They seemed interested in that.|
