Our First Day of Kindergarten

It was such an amazing day!  Thanks to all the parents who attended our Kindergarten Orientation meeting this morning.

We learned lots of new things today.  We learned how Kindergartners line up.  We learned how we use the bathrooms and wash our hands at school.  And, we learned how to put our lunch numbers in the system and how to stack the trays after we eat so they don't all crash to the ground.  We had our snacks and then we learned how to be safe on the playground.  And that was just the morning!!!


I think our favorite part of the day was lunch and recess!

After lunch, we read the story "The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn.  It's about a little raccoon named Chester who did not want to go to school on his first day.  He actually felt sad in the story!  But then his mom gave him a kissing hand and he felt lots better.  Ask your child what the kissing hand is!  When we finished the story, we talked about how we felt on the first day of school...look at our responses!


We also got to visit the school library this afternoon and meet Mrs. Hemsey.

Then it was time for us to go home for the day.  We were all tired but Mrs. Kurt said we did a great job.  She told us to be sure and get a good night sleep because there is lots more for us to learn tomorrow!!
