Kindergarten Fun

Audrey is coming up on her 100th day of kindergarten!  She still has some anxiety about school, but for the most part, she is doing a great job.  She is very careful to listen and follow every direction and rule, so that she is always doing exactly what she is supposed to be doing.  (now we need to convince her to have this same level of obedience at home with us!!)  Last week, she was chosen as a Super Student in her class!

Audrey is learning a lot at school.  She is starting to read more and more on her own.  I am eager and a little impatient for the day when she will just pick up a book and read it all to herself for fun.  I have the greatest hope that my girls will like to read as much as I do!  She is also doing a good job in math, learning to count by 2s, 5s, and 10s as well as adding and subtracting.

I'm grateful that her school and teacher take lots of pictures!  I love being able to have all these pictures of her and the fun activities she does at her school.  She has a big class, with 29 students right now!  But we love her teachers and are excited about all that she is learning.

This was a unit they did on the five sense, and they played a lot of games where they had to use their different senses to guess what an object was.

Before Halloween, Audrey's class got to carve a pumpkin for a local Jack O Lantern event.  I love this picture of Audrey (with her two best buddies in her class) getting ready to stick her hand inside the pumpkin!

In class one day, they made a witches brew using letters and sounds.

Around Thanksgiving, we had a family project to disguise a turkey so that he wouldn't be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner.  We turned our turkey into Ariel, so he could swim under the sea and be safe.

At the Thanksgiving Day feast with an assistant in her classroom.  Audrey, who has not yet been brave enough to try school cafeteria food, chose to bring her own feast from home.

This was our table for Family Trivia Night, a fundraiser for the school.

Every two weeks, students who have received stars in their folders every day get to have a Good Citizen party.  Daniel joined Audrey for her Good Citizen Nacho Party!
