The First Day of Kindergarten

The Kindergarten Class

We had a great first day of school!  They were engaged in the activities, well-behaved, polite and kind to one another.  What more could I ask for?

We only went for half a day of school today, so that we could get set up, go over the rules, get more comfortable and get to know each other.

 Some of the questions from today were:  

"When is it recess time?"  I heard that one a lot.
"Will we eat lunch here today?"
"When can we play with the toys?"
"Do you like birds? ..."Why?"

I sent home a booklet with "Franklin", the turtle, on it.  Inside it tells what we did in school today.  Unfortunately I got so busy with the kids, that I forgot to take more photos, but here are a few to share from the day!

Here they are building a tall tower with the Kleenex boxes.

These boys are focusing hard on carefully cutting out their apples.

Here is the fun snack that I came up with!

They had a half hour to check out the toys.  That is very important to a k-kid!

The boys loved the trucks!

The girls were busy building with various blocks.
Tonight is the Open House at school from 5:00-7:00, so please stop in for a free supper, door prizes and come check out your child's classroom.  It should be a fun evening!  Then tomorrow we are off and running!
