Welcome to Room #112

Welcome to Kindergarten!  I'm Larry Bogolub (aka Mr. "B") and am glad you are here!  I graduated from Macalester College in 1982 and got my Masters Degree from the University of St. Thomas in 1997.  I have been teaching for the Minneapolis Public Schools since 1996. I have been teaching kindergarten at Northrop since 2006 and love it!  I am married and have two very active boys that keep me  busy!  When I am not teaching at Northrop, I like to go kayaking, fishing,  and reading.  I also enjoy biking to work everyday!

I want students to love coming to school everyday.  This year, we are working on learning the sounds and letters of the alphabet, over 30 sight words, and journal writing.  My goal is to get every student reading by the time they graduate from kindergarten in June.  We  also practice counting to 100, learn how to read a calendar, and make a variety of patterns.  Students will also learn to care for the environment via numerous walking field trips to Minnehaha Creek and classroom lessons.  Recently, we had lessons on recycling, trees, the four season, and making our own maple syrup.   Finally, we will all work together on getting to know each other and being the best friends that we can be!

One of the highlights of our classroom is our spring environmental play, Dabble Dip.  We will be working with a director from the Minneapolis Children's Theater.  We also are incorporating art and music into the play. We will be painting the sets and singing  a song at the end of the production.
