A message to all members of Mrs. Herbic's Kinder Klub


HELLO KINDER KLUB MEMBERS!!!! Welcome to all our new members! It is so exciting to see all the networking going on between teachers worldwide!


HAPPY OCTOBER! Fall has fallen!!!! I love pumpkin spice lattes, crisp mornings, and seeing pumpkins everywhere! It won’t be long until Halloween is knocking on our classroom doors! Cindy Steele has some fabulous center ideas located on her website. Cindy has done a wonderful job documenting her centers with pictures for those of you that are visual learners! Jessica Vicknair added her creative touch in the forum below, as well. [On the Friday before Halloween, my class has a "Halloween" Party- my parties are center related. I have Literacy Halloween Center related centers in the morning (Writing Center- "Halloween Sights" Book, I see 3 ghosts, etc., Listening Center- Listen to a Halloween story on tape, Reading Center- depends on the letter of the week, and Art Center- Paint a pumpkin paper bag). My party is different, but still center based: Halloween Game Center- Pin the Wart on the Witch (I use sticky tack as the wart), Halloween Haunted House Math- I have a haunted house on a mat and white bean ghosts- I show a number and they place that many ghosts in the house, I also have manipulatives from Oriental Trading for them to make patterns, Halloween Art Center- make Candy Corn Man and Ghost Tube Socks, and Halloween Food Center. I have parents come to help and the children really enjoy this, and a great way to have a "party" without having a party. After the party, we "Trick or Treat" as a grade level. Lots of fun![
