All Tangled Up!

We are working on those tricky teen numbers (11-20)  in kindergarten and to help our brains remember them we use flash cards, songs, pattern claps, and we also played a game called Teen Tangle! The game is played with 2-4 people. One person is the spinner and has to spin a number 11-20. They have to call out the number and the whosever turn it is, has to find that number on the board and they can reach for it using their hands or feet. The person who can stay up, and untangled the longest is the winner! We definitely got tangled up with those tricky teens, but at least we had fun doing it!

Fire Prevention

For those of you that don't know, Fire Prevention Week was this week,  October 3-9. This is a BIG deal for the Kindergarteners because fire fighters came in to talk to them about the necessary steps to help them stay safe at home and in school, if a fire was to occur. They also teach the students to update and maintain their home smoke alarm protection, how to create a fire escape plan, and how to respond if a fire were to occur. 
Enjoy the photos. Who knows...maybe we have some future fire fighters on our hands
