Thank you Kasey from Doodle Bugs for the link.
This week our staff gathered Wednesday after school and decorated these cute pumpkins. They are on display in our Media Center (library). For a 'Fun'raiser, the students can bring in coins to add to the cans of their favorite pumpkin. All proceeds will go to our school Relay for Life team!
Even the fifth grade students had to prove they knew the Humpty Dumpty rhyme by reciting it to each other!
Go, Cubs, Go! A tape was being played as each class viewed our creations. So of course, the kindergarten children repeated that chant all day long!
Did I say .......Go, Cubs go!........?
Our Kindergarten visited our local pumpkin farm, Coulters in Westville, Indiana. Here we are on the wagon ride out to the field.Shelby found her favorite.
I really need to keep them moving to keep their attention these days. Making my list of attention grabbers.
- Macarena months song helps to start our day. Thank you, Dr. Jean.
- Dr Jean's "Banana Song" youtube video has saved my patience :) when I need a brain break!
- I say, "Hands on top" They respond, "Everybody stop!"
- "What does a flat tire sound like?" "shhhhh"
- "What do two flat tires sound like?" " shhh, shhh"
- "Tootsie roll, lollipop" "We've been talking, now we'll stop."
- "If you can hear my voice....(tell an action such as touch your ears, clap two times, snap your fingers....)
- any kind of counting song, my favorite is by Discovery Toys, Barbara Milne's 'Counting to 30' and 'Counting by tens.'
- Ringing chimes, attention bell and lights out are quick but not as effective every time.
Did you notice the candy corn guys over my tables? Thanks to Doodle Bugs! Love them.
