Happy Wednesday!

We had a great day!
In the morning JKs had gym class, snacks and morning circle time with Sabrina presenting her show and tell.
Next, we had music class with Ms. Hayward and right after we had some time to practice our arts night song.
In the afternoon we made a graph together about how we come to school...by bus, by car or walking...
After collecting the data we analyzed and came to the conclusion that all of us come to school by car. :)
Next, we worked on CVC words. JKs used alphabet stamps, play doh and cut and paste in order to build short words. We are getting ready for the spelling bee!!! :)










After second recess we had centers. Centers is probably the most fun part of the day for the JKs.
