Happy Thanksgiving!

It was a very busy…but fun day in Kindergarten!  We started the day by reading the story 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey.  It is a cute story about how some school children on a field trip to Old Mack Nugget's farm save some turkeys the night before Thanksgiving.

Next we made our Thanksgiving feast snack mix.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to this.  We had lots of things to add and a huge bowl!  Mrs. Radermacher helped do the mixing.




It looked delicious and we were excited to try some.  But first we needed to do some community writing.  We made a poster of all the things we are thankful for.



Then we were ready to make our cute turkey hats while we enjoyed our Thanksgiving feast snack.





Of course, we had to model our adorable hats!

We couldn't resist a photo with our silly faces, too!

The whole school got to play turkey bingo this afternoon.  It was so much fun.  We each made our own bingo card.  Mrs. Town, Mrs. Tavernier and some of the Northview Student Council members called the game for us on the news.  The best part was when you got a bingo, you got to gobble and run down the hall to get your prize.  We don't usually get to run in school so that was extra fun for us.








It was a fun, but exhausting day.  At this time of year when we think about all that we are grateful for…I am truly grateful for each of these kindergartners.  They are teaching me lots of things as I teach them and I look forward to working with them each day.  I hope each of you and your families have a happy, safe and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday.  Enjoy this special time together with your friends and families.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Today was Cycle Day 3 so during our specialist time you would find us in Music with Mrs. Cindy Treb.


We have been doing lots of fun stuff in Music, like learning about rhyming words and trying out the mallet instruments for the first time.  We did a great job!

Physical Education

On Cycle Day 2, you will find our class in the gym for specialist time enjoying some physical education with some pretty awesome people…Mr. Chad Nelson, Mrs. Gayle Mueller and Miss Anna Schmidt.


Mr. Nelson is our Physical Education teacher.  He is assisted by Eagan High School Mentor Student Miss Anna Schmidt and our Adaptive Physical Education teacher Mrs. Gayle Mueller.  This amazing group of people put together some great activities for us to participate in on Cycle Day 2!

Mr. Nelson has an All Star board in the gym.  Each week or so, he chooses an All Star from each classroom.  This All Star is a good role model and tries to be their best self throughout the class.  When the All Star is chosen, their picture is displayed on the board in the gym.  This week's All Star from our class is Aaron.  Please join me in congratulating our friend Aaron on this great accomplishment!


Our class started a new unit in P.E. today on bowling.  We had to be really good listeners so we would know what to do throughout the class.  Mr. Nelson explained everything to us and we were off to bowl in our groups.  As you will see from the photos, we did a great job!






We really had to work together for this activity.  It was lots of fun and the good news is we get to do this a few more times so we can't wait to come back to the gym on Cycle Day 2!  Thank you, Mr. Nelson, Mrs. Mueller and Miss Schmidt for all you do for our class.
