Happy Friday! I hope you all had an enjoyable week. Our week was all about Texas! I absolutely love teaching kiddos about the history and and traditions of Texas. I have lived in Massachusetts, Arizona, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, but I am a Texas girl by birth and I am so happy to be back here and teach my Kinders about our state!
We learned about important people from our past by using some of my Texas materials I posted about last week. We also had a Chili Cook-Off with the other Kinder classes. All of the classes cooked their chili at school. I wanted to make the experience unique for my cuties, so I brought in a lot of stuff so we could vote on what should go in the chili.
Before we made the chili, we discussed who had eaten chili and what it tasted like and also looked at some photos of chili. Then we voted on what food products should be used. We are working on comparing numbers, so this was an opportunity for us to compare who voted yes and who voted no.
Here is our chili after we voted on what food should be in it.
(Yes, those are carrots because several of my cuties claimed that there were "orange things" in the chili photos.)
At the end of the day we enjoyed (well, some of us - you don't want to know what was in the chili) our creation.
Each class earned an award in a particular category. Guess who's was "Most Original"?
That would be us!
We also enjoyed a rodeo! Here are some pics of our fun!

What a busy week! What are you up to this weekend?
