Kindergarten Beach Buddies
Greetings from Kindergarten!
In writers' workshop we fixed and fancied our star stories and had our first "Writing Celebration". We each shared one page from our stories and then used juice to have a "toast" to our success! We raised our glasses to our hard work and many stories yet to come!
During math we have focused on "shopping with pennies", tricky teen numbers, counting on, and story problems.
In readers' workshop we began talking about our "schema"--all the information in our brain. We "activate our schema" before we read to help us best understand the story.
Cheers to our young writers!
Other Kindergarten Learning...
Our "schema" is growing for owls. We are learning many new owl facts!
Each day "Smart Shops" help us become strong, independent readers and writers.
Each morning we start our day with a "morning meeting". We greet, share, and building community within our class.
