Hippity, Hoppity, Happy Easter!!

This week was loads of fun!  We celebrated Easter and learned a new phonics rule.  We learned all about "sneaky e".  We acted out this fun phonics rule each day.  We pretened that sneaky e hid behind a consonant and "scared" the vowel into "saying it's name".  Translation:  A vowel is long when it is followed by a consonant and silent e (vowel-consonant-sneaky e).  The students loved acting this out each day!

We continued practicing reading, writing, and creating sentences with sight words.  I hope you're practicing these words at home too!

We ended the week with a big Easter egg hunt!  All of Kindergarten participated, parents help hide over 1,000 eggs!!  You would be surprised how fast Kindergarten-ers can find 1,000 eggs!

With baskets in hand, everyone is ready to hunt!


Everyone found many eggs and were so kind to share with others who need a few more eggs in their baskets. 

Following the hunt, we went back to our class for a party!

Thanks to the parents who helped with all the snacks!

We definitely know how to party!

Tyler brought everyone their own jump rope.  Thanks, T-Man!
