We have had a great time learning this past week and getting to know our friends.  During math we worked on matching and practicing how to take turns.  We also played memory; therefore, we can now add this game to our math/game center.  We also earned some time to go outside to play.  Last week was beautiful!  We had to take advantage.  The children are doing a great job!

Text Reminders...

Here is a quick and easy way to get reminders about our class.  You can sign up for "Remind" which will send a safe text message to you.  I will not be able to see your phone number and you will not be able to see my number.  This is just an easy way to get up to date information when I want to remind you of something.

You just have to text: @joestahl to the number 81010
(please note that standard text messaging rates apply depending on your phones plan)

Open House...

I am very excited about this upcoming school year.  I cannot wait to see you all at open house (August 17 from 6-8)!  We had a great kindergarten camp last week!

Just a little information about me!  I have been teaching for 13 years and the majority of it has been spent in kindergarten.  I am married and have two wonderful daughters!  We had a fantastic summer of hanging out, going to the zoo, and also swimming!  Here are a few pics from the summer!  I cannot wait to hear all about your adventures.

Please check back regularly for updates to what is happening in the classroom!

End of Year Fun...

It's been awhile since I posted.  It has been crazy here in kindergarten with assessments for 3rd quarter and then working through 4th quarter.  We are preparing for our graduation at the end of the month!  It should be a blast.

Here are few pictures of things that have been going on!  I am amazed by the learning that has occurred!

Center Fun...

We have had a lot of fun in our centers these past few weeks.  We have created books, played word games, math games, and explored music.  I know call me crazy for letting the kids play instruments in class, but it was fantastic to see them work as groups and create "songs" together.  After watching them I think this was by far one of their favorite centers this year!

Just Some Fun...

We had our first mystery reader this past week.  The children loved having a guest come in and read a story to them...I think they were very excited that it was someone different than me for once :)  I am looking forward to having a lot more mystery readers coming in over the next few weeks.  If you are interested please let me know.  You can email or call the school and leave me a message 943-6929.  I will get back with you as soon as I can to set up a time.

We also read "Zin, Zin, Zin a Violin" this past week and learned about sound.  We also completed an art project with making a violin using tissue paper and water.  The children loved this project.  Monday will be the culmination of our sound theme with using various instruments to create our own orchestra!  It should be a lot of fun!
