I hope that you enjoy the pictures of our Forest Feast/Luncheon on Friday. The children had a wonderful time choosing what Forest Foods they would like to eat. Many thanks to all of you who made contributions of supplies and your time!
The children enjoyed bringing their own stuffed forest friend to lunch as well!

Looking At Number Patterns When We Write Our Numbers

This afternoon we made math observations about the patterning that we saw when we were writing our numbers. We also noticed how rows and columns of numbers were similar and different.

The Williston Food Shelf!






video

We had a great trip this afternoon to the food shelf. Deb Beckett gave us a tour, talked to us about what a food shelf is, it's importance and role that it plays in a community. The children were able to carry their own bag of food and deliver it as well. I am making a list on the blog of items that the food shelf needs. Please feel free to drop these items off in Kindergarten or the food shelf. We will continue to collect food throughout the year and ask for parent volunteers to deliver the food with some of the children. Thanks so very much everyone!

Also on January 2nd and January 3rd the food shelf is moving to a new location, near Rocky's Pizza. They can use your help! Just show up on Sunday, January 3rd at the Williston Food Shelf to help with this big move if you can.

Sorting, Organizing and Dividing Food For The Food Shelf

This morning the children spent part of their ease-in time dividing the donated food into equal amounts to be taken to the Williston Food Shelf this afternoon. Wow! Lots of discussion about what is equal,heavy, light and the same! Stay tuned later for more information regarding our visit this afternoon.
We are also donating a math quilt that we made to help decorate the walls in the Food Shelf. Look at how beautiful it is!

Caps For Sale!





This morning we read a wonderful story called, "Caps For Sale." It is a great story about a peddler who sells caps and runs into some curious monkeys while he naps in the countryside.

After we read the story we created a detailed picture of what we enjoyed in the book. Some of us wrote the title and even labeled our drawings. One of the children had an idea! The child wrote 2 words on the smartboard for everyone to see along with a picture clue for EACH word in case they could not read the word. Wow!
