Hi there and thanks so much for stopping by! This past week we hosted our first spring kindergarten open house/round up! It was so much fun and the kids really seemed to like “easing in” to the new school! We always have a fall open house where the kiddos get to bring in their supplies and meet us. However, it is usually so hectic we rarely get to socialize much and it’s pretty a fast faced blurr. For this spring open house/round up the kids were able to have the night be about them and get to choose where and what they wanted to do!
Of course nothing says kindergarten like a THEME! Our theme was safari and the kids had a blast going on their little adventure to kindergarten! What goes hand in hand with a themed activity??? Amazon Prime 😉 Here is a look at our entry table.
Once checked in and after getting their name tags…we gave each student a safari hat and they then got to take their picture in the safari jeep!
After the students were checked in and had gotten their pictures taken parents headed into the gym for a quick talk from our principal. Afterwards the real fun started! Each kiddo was given their own safari ranger certification passport. They then headed to each area to have their passports stamped!

Parents also received this quick “check-off” list for their soon to be kindergarten kiddo. This list has some academic areas, but mostly focuses on the important non academic aspects of entering kindergarten! You can grab this parent flier as a freebie by clicking HERE.
I had placed these signs around the school to help direct parents on where to go! The lion’s den where were the kiddos go to explore with math manipulatives. There were pattern teddy bear cards, pattern block puzzles, and more. The students could move from station to station to explore!
Each of us had our own matching stamp for our themed room! We stamped the kiddos’ passports when the would enter the room.
After the students made their way through the five rooms they were give a special sticker!
Well….that’s all I have for you today! Have a great week and I’ll be checking in soon! 🙂
