We had a great first day! We are working with "The Kissing Hand" and various activities to learn about school. I am looking forward to seeing the next group of kids tomorrow and Friday! Then the full year starts on Monday (8/22) when the whole class comes together!

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!
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)
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!
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!
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!
