Monday, May 6, 2013

It was a cloudy, cool Monday morning in kindergarten. I checked the weather forecast early this morning before work. It called for late morning thundershowers right at bike time, but I put on my green shirt anyway with the hope of getting out with the class on bikes.

Our schedule must change this week due to STAR testing in grades 2 through 6. We're minimally impacted—we must advance snack to about 9:40 and delay recess until 10:00. What this means to you is this: if you want to serve a smaller breakfast this week, it will be okay. The class will get to snack earlier than usual.

Although there were plenty of clouds around Dunham, there was no rain. Madilynn learned to ride her two-wheeler today under the expert guidance of Mrs. Everson. Mrs. Everson sent along a photo she took.

Way to go, Madilynn!

Aidan brought a book to share. It was another tale of animal gluttony sort of similar to his well-known and much-admired classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This one was called The Greedy Python and it told the tale of a python who eats ten animals before eating his own tail and disappearing.

After the first reading, we tried to remember all 10 of the animals he ate. It took all of us working together to come up with the list and we eventually succeeded.

Be well.
