I've been considering a kindergarten blog for some time now. As, traditionally, September is the start of a new school year, this seems like the perfect time for a new beginning.
It's hard to believe we're into our 5th week already! The kids are hard at work learning how to write their names properly. We're three weeks in to the Ti and Mo phonics program, working on numbers to 5, AB patterns, sorting and shapes. I found some great patterning ideas over at my favorite blog, Kindergarten Crayons. Fran is amazing! Be sure to check her out. kindergartencrayons.blogspot.com She's got a wonderful pattern book up right now, and it's free! She's very generous.
I love making little books with the kids, don't you? We're making one right now called Eating Shapes. I got the idea from my priceless partner Lisa. Then wonderful husband Glenn formatted it and added some graphics and a border and voila! Here it is!

If you would like to use this with your darlings, you'll find it here. Enjoy!
Here is a list of foods we used for this activity:
• Circle ~ Chips Ahoy cookies
• Square ~ Big Cheez-Its
• Triangle ~ Triscuit Triangles
• Rectangle ~ Pink wafer cookies
• Oval ~ Flipsides crackers
I hope your year is off to a great start and that you're having a relaxing Labor Day.
