It's Easter in Miss Hood's Class

Hello Friends!  My four and a half day week seemed to last forever!  The kinders, on the other hand would politely disagree.  According to them it was the "best week ever!"   Here are a couple of highlights of our week.

The kinders loved these Easter books!  Although we read many books this week these in particular received two thumbs up and some jazz hands.  Come on...  who doesn't love Splat the Cat and his buddy Seymore?  

We added a new poem to our poetry journals called Peter Cottontail.  

Chocolate bunnies anyone?  Kinders love to get messy and what could be more fun than getting messy with chocolate pudding?  This is one of my favorite art projects that I have the kids do.  The finished product is adorable... don't ya think?  

The kinders documented their thoughts about spring in their journals.  

Estimating can be a difficult concept for the kinders to grasp.  While patrolling some of my favorite teaching blogs I came across this great idea from the KinderGals.  Put a number line at the bottom of your estimation chart that way the kinders can visually see the numbers.  I'm not kidding when I say that this is a beyond brilliant idea!  The kinders estimated bunny marshmallows that I put in a jar.  They recorded their educated guess on an egg and glued it to the chart. 

The kinders weaved their own Easter baskets and Miss Hood filled them with goodies.

Here they are all wrapped up and ready to go home!  

To top off the "best week ever" we had a Spring Hat Parade!  The kinders and their families created a hat for them to wear in the parade.  The hats were amazing this year!  

Thank God spring break starts today!  I am tired and ready for a vacation!  I hope you enjoyed this peek into my crazy week.   Don't forget to leave me a comment.  I would love to hear from you.
