I was so excited to see most of you guys on Tuesday! I can't believe there is only one week of school left. Everyone has picked up their bags now. We might be the ONLY class that did WOW!! That is amazing. I hope you all have an amazing SUMMER VACATION filled with lots of learning and exploring, and you find all of the extra materials in your bags useful. I sent an email with ideas on how you could use everything. I look forward to getting to visit with everyone once we return to school!
Mrs. Brady and I love and miss you all very much!
On Wednesday May 27th, Fort McCoy will be having a parade to celebrate all of our students. I hope you all can come by and wave to everybody. It will be from 1:00-2:00 in both the car rider and bus loop!
Mr. Brady is still selling yearbooks until he runs out at $25.

This is our last week for distance learning. I hope you have enjoyed these activities and lessons. You can always go back and do activities you may have missed or redo ones you really enjoyed!
I'd still really like to see any Nursery Rhyme Day videos that you may have made if you haven't sent them in yet! I would love to share the ones I have received, but it isn't allowed.
I am attaching a Poem that I used to print and give at graduation. The only thing missing for you will be a picture, but you can put one in of your choice!
Here are some extra worksheets to go along with the Ocean Theme for the week. The cards you can do just by looking at the pictures, and don't have to print.
Here are some Websites:

Please remember the links to all of the books and other resources are embedded in the At Home Learning Packet link. If you need anything, please remember I am just a phone call, email, or text away! Please let me know if you need the link!
Your assignment this week is to complete one of the activities in the packet and send me a picture. It would be out of this world to create the moon with aluminum foil!. You could tell me what you would do if you met an alien, and draw a picture of what he or she would look like. You can make a rocket out of the letters in your name! There are so many fantastic activities in this weeks plans. I hope you find one you enjoy doing!
Lesson Plans and activities for May 11-15
Here are 2 possible Mother's (and Grandmother's) Day activities you could do with your children!
(I left this as a word document in case you wanted to type your answers in the blanks and print it. I put the pink "a" on the page, so you could type your answers and they would be pink and underlined. You could also just print it and write in the answers, just delete the letter "a" first.) If you aren't able to print, you could just write the questions and their answers on a piece of paper.
(I would usually attach this paper to a 9x12 piece of construction paper and then do their handprints in paint.)
Here is the nursery rhyme from last week: Rub-a-Dub-Dub Nursery Rhyme
On May 19th from 10:00am-2:00pm, the car rider line will be open for PreK-2nd grade parents to drive through and pick up your child's belongings. I am planning to be there from 10:00-12:00 to help, so try to get there during this time for your child's things.
Yearbooks are still on sale for $25.00 Mr. Brady will be out selling them during the times you can pick up your child's things.
Don't forget your Nursery Rhyme Activity is due on Friday May 15th!!! Send them if you haven't already, so I can see how awesome they turned out!!
Remember, your favorite healthy foods activity is due Monday, so this is your reminder.
Here is a fantastic website that you can use to access live animal feeds from zoos all over the world. These can be a great motivational reward for your little ones. There are also lots of other virtual filed trips as well.
I will be out of town until Tuesday evening, but you can contact me at any time. Since I won't be home though, I am posting next week's information early.
Well I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, and I hope all of you moms, and grandmas enjoyed your Mother's Day! I am going to go ahead and post Father's Day activities in these plans because I might just forget if I wait, and I am thinking about it now. This way if you want the poems, you will know where to find them for when Father's Day gets closer. This week don't forget that the links to all of the books and resources that go with the lessons are embedded into the At Home Learning Packet Week 8 link.
Here are some printable memory or end of year books. Look through the different versions and use whichever one suits you and your child. This is posted of course as optional, but if you do one and you want to share it with me, I would love to see it!
Father's Day activities: Father's Day Poem (for this one, I always painted the kid's one foot a light color in a thin layer and have them step on the paper. After it dries, I would then glue it to a piece of 9x12 black construction paper)
Fillable Father's Day Poem (I left this as a word document in case you wanted to type your answers in the blanks and print it or you can print it and write in the answers.)
This link here--> bit.ly/oceansprek, will take you to the most recent Kindergarten Crate activities!
Happy Mother's Day to all of our Moms and Grandmas! Thanks for all you do!
We do not have a date yet, but the school is working on setting up dates, so you can pick items up from the school. Items such as yearbooks, school pictures, and things like that. I will let you know more when dates and procedures have been decided.
As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to text, email, or call!
Lesson Plans and Activities for May 4 - May 10
This week for your assignment, I would like you to tell me about your favorite healthy foods. I would like you to draw, paint, or create them in some way (for example - play dough) or whatever way you can imagine! I would love to know if they are fruits, vegetables, dairy, grains, or protein.
Part of being healthy is exercise! We used to do exercises, yoga and stretching in our classroom! Here are some exercises you can do at home:
Cosmic Kids Yoga (This is long, and would be best done over a few sessions, but it is about Alice in Wonderland!)
If You're Happy and You Know It (This is a great slow down song, and they love to Hi in all of the different languages!)
Here is a whole activity packet about bees! Without them, we wouldn't have our heathy fruits and vegetables! Please remember that these are optional activities, and you don't even have too print them to be able to do them! http://bit.ly/prekbee If you do any of it though, I would love to see pictures or videos!
Stay safe and healthy!
Lesson Plans and activities for April 28-May 4
I hope everyone is staying safe and having fun during our distance learning time.
Mr. Brady asked us to share this with you about yearbooks:
“Don’t let this year pass without getting a 2020 Yearbook. Order online with a credit card at www.yearbookordercenter.com.”
This link Yearbook Video will take you to a video he made!
Ms. Woerner also made a video from photos and videos that teachers sent in. If you haven't seen it floating around on Facebook here is a link to it:https://youtu.be/iLgAp4LDSxI
If we were having normal school, we were going to have our 1st ever Nursery Rhyme Day! in May. I am so sad we will not be able to do that as a whole class! Here's how we can do it now: Have your child pick his/her favorite nursery rhyme that we have learned this school year. THEY LIKELY HAVE MORE THAN ONE, BUT CHOOSE 1. Then dress up or use props to act out the nursery rhyme. Send me a video when you have finished this activity. I was so excited for this day, and hope to be able to have some of you participate from home. If you can't video it, but you want to share it, you could take a picture of them dressed up or with their props. To give you extra time for this activity, it will be due Friday May 15th. Any questions, just ask!
Again, I am posting our new information on Tuesday! If you are checking out the AT HOME LEARNING PACKET WEEK 6, you could just do the activities on the same days and do Monday's next Monday. Or, you could just do Monday's today (Tuesday) and continue to do that for the rest of the week.
Old Mother Hubbard Nursery Rhyme (No dinosaur nursery rhymes. Maybe she was giving him a dinosaur bone!)
Dinosaur Directed Drawing (this is a step by step how to draw a dino)
For this week, I would love to see your child draw, paint, glue shapes together, build or do whatever they come up with to create their own dinosaur. However creative you and your child would like to get, I would love to see it. Just email me pictures or video of completed dinosaur work if you are able. These will again be due on Monday.

As you know, I really miss our kids, and we have found out that sadly we will not be going back to school this school year. We will keep up with our distance learning through June 1st. I would love to see you all when we return for orientation, or other school activities.
You know you can call, text or email whenever you need to with any questions!
Guess what we are learning about this week!
Mary Had a Little Lamb Nursery Rhyme
I know it doesnt go with the theme, but some of our plans have changed with this distance learning :-)
This week, I would like you to have your child draw a self portrait. Remind them that they need to show us where they are. They aren't just floating in space you know (unless that is where they want to draw themselves HA! , but they need to draw things from space to let us know that is where they are). Please send that to me in a scan, photo, or however possible.
Also, please have your child draw a reptile or amphibian of their choosing. Also, have them tell you something they have learned about reptiles or amphibians to go with the theme this week, and send me a picture/scan/something!
Please get these to me by Monday if possible. Please call/text/email if you won't be able to do it. This is how I am counting attendance this week. You can use the information below to help you find out more about reptiles and amphibians.
Below you will find two videos that can be used with reptiles and amphibians:
Amphibians: Educational Video for Kids
Reptiles: Educational Video for Kids
Several of the kids in our class like Wild Kratts, so I found some videos about different reptiles:
And one about frogs (Amphibians)
Lesson Plans and activities for April 13-17 Guess what we are learning about this week!

Old Woman in Shoe Nursery Rhyme this would have been our rhyme for last week.
Hot Cross Buns Nursery Rhyme this would have been our rhyme for this week (March 30-April 3).
Remember you can choose to print and color the rhyme as they learn it, or you can just learn the rhyme. If you are unable to print, packets will be available Thursday, April 2nd and Friday, April 3rd for pickup but are not necessary. You can have your child draw a picture and color it to go along with the rhyme instead of coloring a picture!
