A House for Hermit Crab

Today we read Eric Carle's A House for Hermit Crab. What a fun story about a crab who wants to make his new shell a little less boring. Lucky for us Mrs. Sambito and Ms. Thomas have a hermit crab in their classroom and allowed us to borrow him for the day. It was so exciting to watch him creep out and walk around. And just like the hermit crab in the story had a beautiful shell so does this one. :)

Kindergarteners Changing the World - Earth Day 2012

On Friday we celebrated Earth Day since it was on a Sunday this year. What a great day of discussions about our part to keep our Earth healthy. We read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss and how the Lorax learned the hard way about taking care of our world. One thing we did was make paintings of the Earth. The kids loved this activity where we used marbles to color the world green and blue.
We also charted all the things we can do (even as kindergarteners)to save our planet. What great ideas they had! Here are some of their thoughts in writing.
Ask your child how he/she is going to change the world and save our planet!

Readers are Leaders

At Chets Creek we believe that READERS ARE LEADERS! To help celebrate our reading success, this nine weeks students were invited to the photobooth. Kids dressed up and took fun and silly pictures with their friends. Here are a couple highlights.

Boosterthon Fun Run 2012

What a great time we had with our Boosterthon Fun Run. Our kids ran 1070 laps! We had a class total pledge of $40 per lap which earned us lots of rewards. Our school pledged more than $95,000 from this one event. Our class will also receive 10% of the pledges received from our class that were turned in the first week. We are so proud of all your hard work. This was one of our best fundraisers I can remember. Thank you for all your support.

We had a great day for our Spring Celebration. We began with an egg hunt and then had lunch and crafts.

We love the zoo!

Here are our pictures from our zoo field trip. We had a beautiful day. Thank you to all our chaperones.
