Pumpkins & Pirates

Our letter this week was "P" and our theme was Pumpkins & Pirates.  It definitely was super busy trying to get both in but it was LOTS of fun for sure.  We did lots of activities including our Pumpkin investigations that I got from Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten, practiced labeling a pirate, had a pajama party on Friday where we watched The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and had popcorn and punch, and sang Jack Hartmann's Silly Pirate Song just to name a few.  Here a few pictures from our activities this week and at the bottom be sure to check at the Silly Pirate Song. If you have never used this with your kids I promise it will be a HIT!!!!  :)  Happy Saturday and WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!  :)

Llama Llama Red Pajama

Thursday was Jumpstart's Read for the Record day where more than 2 million people around the world joined together to call for an end to America's early education gap.  If you are interested you can find out more about this program at  Our school always makes this a fun special day and this year was no different.  The book this year was Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney.  We have the BEST reading coach in the world.  She truly is amazing and does an AWESOME job planning and organizing fun activities for our kiddos.  Check out the pictures below to see all of the fun that we had!   :)

 We had a Pajama Party with Mrs. Landers 
(our AWESOME reading coach).  She read us the story Llama Llama Red Pajama 
and had the kiddos participated by saying 
"Llama Llama Red Pajama" when it was in the story.
Mrs. Landers
 Then we got to go outside and see a REAL Llama!  :)
She gave us a diagram of a llama to label and 
then we had to compare and contrast a real llama 
with Llama Llama Red Pajama from the story.
Our kiddos LOVED it!  :)
