May the 4th be with you!

Today we celebrated Star Wars Day in Full STEAM Ahead.

We had photo ops, we got Star Wars names (mine is Flede Wibro), and we had Star Wars Lego challenges. Some of the challenges were for things like building a Jedi star fighter, building a droid, or building a restaurant for aliens.  Everyone who participated got a ticket for each challenge completed, and the kids with the most tickets got to choose a prize first.

Evasc Romou, Louch Fross, and friend worked together.

A storytime about moms

Books about mothers

Sunday is Mother’s Day, so today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we celebrated mothers. We read What Not To Give Your Mom on Mother’s Day (worms, termites, mud, for example–unless you are a bird, an aardvark, or a pig!) and Is Your Mama a Llama. We also helped Piglet find her Mama, and everyone picked a pretty flower for their mom.

We made Mother’s Day cards, too.

Pockets!

Books about pockets

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten we read some fun stories about pockets. First, we found out what one person put in their pocket–from chocolate pudding to molasses, yuck! Then we had fun hopping along with a little Joey exploring his world.

We had free play time today. Here are some photos:
