Wow! I can't believe the school year is actually over! This year seemed to go by especially fast, even with all of our snow and tornado days. I took a much longer break from the blog than I wanted and was pleasantly surprised when I checked on it this morning.
The California Teaching Credential named not only my blog but my great friend, Suzan's blog as two of the top 50 Kindergarten blogs! Click here to see their website and find the other amazing 48 blogs that made this list. I've got to admit, this news made my day!
OK, the end of the year went exceptionally well even with a week taken out due to the storms. There were several small units that I did not get to ...my Matter Matters unit, one of my favorites had to go by the wayside. Boy, I hated that but we did have a lot of fun with our end of the year Fairytale unit! I don't guess the kids knew the difference!
We started our unit with discussing the elements of a fairytale (see previous post) and learned some vocabulary words often found in most fairytales. I think I will add woodsman or woodcutter..he seems to pop up a lot.

|You can't go wrong with Little Golden Books and the kids recognize them from our 50's unit-a nice tie-in.|
