We had a fantastic time at the sixth annual County Fair Day! There were so many things to see and do that I was unable to take pictures of everyone! We are so proud of Mr. Paciulli for getting up in front of everyone and riding around on the cool four wheeler. He told everyone how he had conquered many of his fears over the year and that it is important to grow and learn by doing things that you are afraid of. Such a great lesson for the students!

We started off our fun County Fair day morning off with a secret reader! This mom read the story The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein. The book is about a shape that "was missing a piece and it was not happy so it set off in search of its missing piece." It is a great book for both the Kindergarteners and the teachers! We loved it! Thank you for coming in!
Today we went out into our school garden to look at the great maple tree that we have been observing over the course of the year. We can actually see this tree from our classroom window It is amazing how their skills have improved since the beginning of the year. There pictures are amazing! We have put all of their observational drawings together in a book for them to take home.

Whitney and I attended a co-teaching conference today in Montpelier. It was a great conference and we learned so much! On our lunch break we went on a tour of the Vermont State House. We thought that our Kindergarteners would enjoy seeing pictures of our adventure.
This week we had a mom come in and be our surprise secret reader! She read the book Gilbert and the Lost Tooth by Diane deGroat. This book is a great story in which Gilbert's looses his tooth at recess! He's so excited for the tooth fairy to come, but Lewis gets jealous and comes up with a plan. Many children have loose teeth and really enjoyed this story!
