Five Senses Field Trip


For the first Kindergarten Field Trip of the year, we loaded up the busses and headed to the Farmers Market and Frog Hollow Playground for a 5 Senses Field Trip.  We had a fun scavenger hunt to complete while we were there and each kid got 4 dollars to spend on items of their choice in the market.  My group bought pumpkins, miniature squash, wooden cars, popcorn, and apples.

Art Prize: 2016

I am pretty lucky that I get to enjoy Art Prize every year, from my office window, from my walk to my office, from my drive through downtown.  But really, who needs fancy Art Prize, when our house is filled with Art Prizes.

There are few subject lines that scare me more, than the word Yikes.  The moment you read that first line, so many things run through your head.  But nothing could be even more frightening, then the second line saying there is lice in Kindergarten. Yes, welcome to week four, we now have lice to worry about.  Because just getting to school on time, making sure snacks are packed and not forgetting library is not enough in the first month.

Get Into The Groove


We are getting into the groove with 5 day-a-week school.  Some days are better than others and some days, I think our school system is crazy to think that 5 year-olds can do full day kindergarten 5-days in a row.  But everyday we are learning and growing.
