On Friday morning we had an egg drop. Each kindergaten student was given a note that explained the project. Each child was to put a raw egg in a baggie and then come up with a creative way to package it so it would survive being dropped off the roof of the school. We had some really creative projects come in. Most of our eggs survived - we did have a couple that did not survive. Thank you to Mrs. Camp, our Assistant Principal for climbing on the roof of the school and dropping all of Kindergartens eggs.

This past week my student teacher, Mrs. Robin taught a unit on Jobs & Careers. On Friday the children were invited to dress up to show what job they would like to have when they grow up. The boys and girls were so excited when they arrived at school. They could hardly wait to share with the class their future jobs.
On Tuesday of this week we had a deputy sheriff come to visit with our class. He came in and talked to the boys and girls about his job. He gave them time to ask questions about his job, took them outside to see his car and let every child have a turn sitting in the car as he explained all the different things in the car and what they do. The boys and girls were so excited!!! Needless to say most them said after he left that they wanted to be policemen when they grow up. He also brought all the boys and girls a coloring book, crayons and a balloon.

Today we had our Class Spelling Bee. I am so proud of how well everyone did. Each child was given a paper about 3 weeks before the spelling bee that had over 200 words on it to study. I was a little overwhelmed with this since the school I came from had never allowed Kindegrarten to be a part of the Spelling Bee - this was all new to me. Well, of course my boys and girls practiced and studied and did an amazing job. We had to keep the spelling bee going until we had 3 winners. Our winners were:
I am so proud of you!!!
