Oh Lovely Learning!

September has come and almost gone, and we have been hard at work!  Is amazing how much a month can change a Kindergartener. From reading, to writing, to math- they have shown so much improvement in such a short time! 
This week, we dove into farm with Mrs. Wishy-Washy.  We have been hitting letter names, sounds, blend ladders, beginning sounds, and sight words hard; and they are so excited about learning how to read this year.  






 

 
 
We also have started our first round of (very guided) non-ficition research!


 
You can find all the Wishy-Washy activities in our TPT Shop!

For Pete's Sake, It's All Good

  
Our kids love Pete.  Actually, they don't just love him, they are CRAZY for Pete!  We have been doing all sorts of fun Pete activities these past two weeks!  Right now, Scholastic has three Pete the Cat books, WITH the CD, for only $12!
