Letter Identification - Pumpkin Edition

Hello friends,

This past week we have been integrating pumpkins and fall elements into our lessons and activities. We just finished week 8 of our curriculum Big Day PreK, and for the alphabet knowledge component we are reviewing the letters A through E. 

This is a fin activity I created for my kiddos. They really enjoy dabbing and stamping, so this practice should be a breeze!

I placed the pumpkins cutouts of the letters into my big pumpkin. Each child took turns picking out a pumpkin letter. That child would read the card and ask their friends to dab it.

They also practice identifying the lower and uppercase letters.

Five for Friday {{10/02/15}}

YAY for Friday....and Saturday!

I have been on Fall break since October 18th, and sadly it has come to an end. This Five for Friday will be about everything that has happened during the break.

I'm on break.....but the work doesn't stop!
I've been doing DRDP assessments during the craziness going on in our house right now.

We purchased our new home three weeks ago. And we are putting new flooring, in the entire house...it looks like a war zone!
This is a peek of where my office will be!

Our new quarter begins on Tuesday and with that comes new goals, new projects, and new ideas!

This would be my favorite of the favorites! My parents came to visit us! They are being awesome in helping to move furniture, unpacking, and helping with the girls!

In all that craziness, you MUST stop and enjoy the sunset!

Trick or Treating Safety!

Hello PKP friends,

Today is the first day of October! That means we have 30 more days for Halloween!!! I love this holiday! I personally love the parents and children's imagination that's put into those elaborated and well-thought costumes. I still remember a few years ago one of my students was wearing a very nice sparkly dress with a silver suitcase with  number on it - she was dressed up as a model from the game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire! It was so clever!! 

With all of the celebration there's also certain safety rules we all need to explain our kids and most importantly is to explain the reasoning behind it. Is not that we want to ruin their fun, we just want them to have a great time and be safe at the same time.

This is a very special post! In collaboration with Norm Reeves Honda we provide you with a very cute infographic about Trick or Treating Safety Tips.

"As the keeper of the candy
and the parent of the small,
these tips will come in handy
for the safety of one and all"

Now I just need to start thinking about my own costume. Maybe a princess, or a witch, or a pirate, or a cowgirl......so many choices!
