Rhyme Time!

If you are working on rhyming words with your kids, this is a great print, cut and laminate game you can use!
I even sent a copy home with each of my kids to play with their parents!  It is great and they love it! :)

Hop on over to my TpT store to pick it up! :)
Everything is on sale!


Long time, no post!  I've been working like crazy with my kinder friends!  I am working on a few new things and adding them to my TpT store!  I hope you can use them!  The first is a Color, Count, Graph & Compare math page that you can use during these next couple of weeks before Christmas!  It's Christmas-themed!  I hope you will enjoy! :)

It's been a GREAT summer!

WOW, it has been TWO MONTHS since I last posted!  I almost forgot how to login to blogger! :)  I have had an amazing summer!  Each summer I feel like it gets better and better!  I'm not sure if it is because I appreciate the time with my babies more so each year, or what!   But school (for teachers) starts back next Monday, and I am getting back into the swing of things!

For all past parents, you may want to un-subscribe to the daily emails.  :(  I am going to turn this blog into a teacher-centered blog.  I get so many emails, almost daily, asking questions, I figured why not!  I will have a brand new classroom-only blog (kimbrellskindergartenkids) within the next week!

So if you are a teacher, I hope you will stay, pull up a chair and enjoy!  I can't wait to blog about lessons and ideas that I use in my classroom as well as share tools, projects and lessons with you!

With my best,

Walk About Puppets!!!!!!!

Tuesday we had the opportunity to attend the BEST puppet show EVER!   Many of you know Mr. Bob Parsons from Walk About Puppets, here in Opelika!  He visited the school to share Goldilocks and the Three Bears with us, and it was a real treat!  Here is a giant picture adventure (with a few videos too)...

Mrs. Sartain introducing Mr. Bob

He is so funny!

He talked to us about American Sign Language and how he incorporates it into his shows!  

Storytime at 11:00!

I think his book might be too small! :)

This one might be too heavy?

He CREATED this pop-up book, along with each of his puppets, ALL BY HIMSELF!!!  AWESOME!

It truly is unbelievable! 
There is baby bear!

We had front row seats!!!!!

I tried to get laughing pictures, but my camera was being a bit slow! :)

They were either mesmerized or laughing hysterically!



All of the puppets together!

After the show, Mr. Bob took questions from the audience!   
We found out he is a fireman, a puppeteer, AND he is from Australia!  WOW!

Showing us how he made the bear puppets.

Showing us how he made Goldilocks.  Carving her from a piece of wood!

What an awesome morning we had!  A HUGE thanks to Mr. Bob for making the puppet show so special! :)

With my best,

Eggciting news!!!!!

Sunday was day 21 in our hatching adventure!  I stopped by around 2:00 to check on them and we had ONE chick!!!!!!  I was so excited!!!  As we came in this morning, on day 22, we had one more chick to hatch.  We are still holding out hope for the other 12 eggs!  We will give them until Wednesday or Thursday before we lose hope!  Here are a few pictures of our chicken adventures...
Our one little chick, who the children have already named "Chirpy," when I came on Sunday!
Gates and Avery watching the chicks.

Chirpy and Nemo
Nemo is the brown chick.  One of his wings is significantly smaller than the other.  This is causing some MAJOR balance issues.  We hope they are just balance issues, and not signs of not making it!  

Sorry for the cords. I bought a clear container so we could see the chicks easier, but the cords aren't the most aesthetically pleasing!

Our chart showing the development inside the egg each day.  We had each egg covered up with the number on the front.  Each day the helpers got to take the egg off to show the class what's happening inside!

Here are our remaining eggs!  We hope they will hatch!!!

We began a chick observation journal!  Here are a few pictures...

Happy Hatching! :)
