Apples, Apples, Apples!

We had an Apple Fun Day on Friday! Everything we did all day long was about apples!

Do apples float or do they sink?

Check out my free worksheet on TPT that goes with this experiment.

We also did an estimation jar. The jar was shaped like an apple! :)

 Apple paintings with watercolors!

Tear art in the shape of a letter "a"!

We also tried yellow, green, and red apples and graphed our favorites. The majority of kids liked the yellow apples best. We also painted with apples that were cut in half and read lots of apple story! Overall it was a great day!

Math Journals

Math has never been my favorite subject to teach. Therefore I am always looking for ways to make it more exciting and fun for my students and for myself. This year I decided to implement math journals and so far it is going great! Check out the kids hard at work! If you like what you see you should check out Deanna Jump's Math Journal Prompts on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Starting a NEW Year!!

A year ago I decided to leave public school teaching and start my own VERY small private school. Our first year was very small and quiet but now in our second year we are seeing lots of growth. This year we are running three classes (transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade) in a big open one room classroom. We have a unique learning environment that emphasizes small class sizes and keeping learning fun! I am going to do my best to document our journey this year and share some of the fun projects and activities that we will be doing in all three grades! 

Here are some pictures of our classroom this year!
