The vote is in

Well the vote in Florida has FINALLY come in and the winner is (drum roll please) ~ FROSTED COOKIES!!!!  This week we had such a great time in my class.  I had no assessments due, no conferences and only one meeting which means I actually got to . . . wait for it, wait for it ~ TEACH. Here is a peek at my week.

My kinders were focusing on the letter C so we made these adorable cook hats as one of our projects. It's hard to see in the picture but the brim of the hat has pictures of  C words.  
Since we were already talking about C words, I thought let's make election day fun so instead of a mock election, my kinders and firsties voted for our favorite cookie.
Long lines at the polling booth (well it is Florida)
Decisions, decisions
The vote was close, but frosted cookies came out the winner.

The kids all had a great time and were so excited when I gave them frosted cookies the next day for snack. As they were eating it made me smile to hear them actually talk about some of the concept of voting that we had discussed on Tuesday.  Believe it our not, they had actually been listening to me, go figure.  I hope that you all had a great week, I'm off to do some blog hopping.
SHINE on everyone!
