Dr. Seuss and 50 Days Left

Whew! What a busy week we had in the Koala Kindergarten class least week! We spent the week reading Dr. Seuss books, doing craftivities and learning centers to go along with each. It was testing time for report cards and right in the middle of the week was our celebration of 50 Days of School Left
 To help my kinders work on their CVC words I found a great "Circus Cat Write the Room" by Carolyn Sullivan from Buzz Into Kinder on TpT. We also made a cute "Fox in Socks" puppet and graphed our goldfish for "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish". Both are FREE-just click on the titles!

One of my "must haves" for centers is a sensory bin. This year I made an extra special one with red and blue colored rice, sparkly pom poms and decorative flat marbles. I added Amy Lowes' "Seusstastical Party Hat Rhyming Picture Match". It's a FREEBIE! Click on the title for link back to her TpT store. 

Check out my Suess-tastical Sensory Bin:

As I said earlier, in the middle of all the "Cat in the Hat" fun we had to stop and celebrate "50 Days of School Left".
I pulled up some pictures of life in the 1950's to compare with life as we know it now. We learned to do the "Hand Jive" and hula hooped for a brain break. For math we "Rolled and Raced to 50" game and we took a survey of who thought they could blow a bubble. Here are our survey results

All of the kinders were given a piece of bubble gum and encouraged to show me how they could blow a bubble. I also handed out this cute page I whipped up to draw and count how many bubbles they could blow. Their goal was 50!

The kinders were so cute trying to learn how to blow a bubble. We found out that there were less bubble-blowers than what the survey said. There were a lot of attempts made but only a few actual bubble-blowers.

Our winner with 25 bubbles blown!

We ended the week with a writing craftivity recording our favorite Dr. Seuss book. I found this idea at Me and My Gang's blog.

Now we are off to find that tricky little Leprechaun! 
Check back soon to see more fun learning things happening in Mrs. Black's Koala Class!
