Spring Break Update

Dear Kindergarten Friends,

I hope that you have all had a WONDERFUL Spring Break, full of fun and laughter!
Madilynn and I went on many fun adventures together (Scott's school isn't on Spring Break just yet, but we surprised him with lunch one day). We enjoyed going to the Cincinnati Reds' Opening Day Parade and we always love our time at the Zoo! Tessa, one of the giraffes, had a baby on Saturday! Click here to read more about it.

We also spent time working in the classroom and I have several things to share:

Check out all of these cool non-fiction books! We will be reading and writing non-fiction books in Writer's Workshop! What animal do you want to learn more about?

Speaking of books, I purchased a HUGE collection of new picture books. I can't wait to share them with all of you!

Finally, LOOK at our female guppy. Looks like she is ready to have MORE babies!

I've missed you all!


Mrs. Rider

P.S. Please leave me a note and let me know what you did on Spring Break. I can't wait to hear about your adventures! :)


  1. I just found this blog and I love your spirit. I am so interested in following you and your ideas for an all day program.
    Please come over to my blog and see if there is anything that might be useful. I can't wait to find out about the non fiction writing activities!

  2. Hi Fran!

    Thank you so much for your kind words! The children are doing an AMAZING job with their non-fiction writing. I will blog about it soon! : ) Thanks for following the blog... I am off to see yours now!
