New Friend

Posted on

We were so happy to welcome a new student to our class last week.  Tolu Aboaba joined us on Monday and has done an amazing job of fitting in and learning our classroom routines.  The boys and girls have been so friendly and helpful in showing their new classmate around.  Welcome, Tolu!  We are so happy you have joined our class!

100 Day

Posted on

Our class has been counting the days of school.  Our last school day was #76.  That means that in a month’s time we’ll be celebrating the 100 Day!  To show our school spirit and to commemorate this special day our class is going to dress up like we are 100 years old.  Some of my friends were concerned that they wouldn’t have a costume to wear so I thought I’d throw out a few ideas to consider:


  • gray hair (spray or baby powder)
  • glasses
  • button down shirt
  • bow tie
  • cane
  • suspenders
  • cardigan
  • sweater


  • gray hair (spray or baby powder)
  • velcro rollers
  • scarf
  • glasses
  • purse
  • pearl necklace
  • dress or skirt and blouse
  • cardigan
  • cane

I hope that this gives you some ideas to work with.  I wanted to give you lots of time to pull something together.

Looking forward to celebrating 100 days of learning and fun!

Candy Cane Hunt

Posted on

Here are a few pics of our candy cane hiding spots.  I tried to include a video of the hunt but am having troubles uploading it.  I wanted to give you a peek into our classroom since you haven’t been inside for awhile.   It may come through on Fresh Grade.  Fingers crossed!

Extra Knight Day

Posted on

I can’t believe we are this close to Christmas holidays!  I’m sure we’re all ready for some rest and relaxation.

We have gotten permission to add an extra Knight day to our last week of school so that the part one Kindies can also enjoy a casual day.  We will wear our Knight shirts on Tuesday and Thursday of next week.  Remember Wednesday is a silly sweater day.

Enjoy your weekend!

Gingerbread Fun

Posted on

Next week Wednesday we are going to have some fun with Gingerbread!  I am looking to have a parent send in a small container of white icing and another parent to send in some festive sprinkles that we can use to decorate our cookies with.  If you are willing to send something in please let me know as soon as possible either by posting on here, or by emailing me.  I am hoping to have these things brought in on Monday (even though we won’t be using them until Wednesday).


Edited to say that the sprinkles have been provided – thanks Titus!

It has been raining a lot lately and this is what our playground currently looks like.  Please consider sending boots along with your child that they can change into for outdoor play.  An extra set of clothes is also helpful in case our uniform gets wet or messy.  We are looking into a solution for the drainage issues out there but will have to wait a bit before that happens.  In the meantime, this might explain the messy uniform your child is probably coming home with each day!
