Mrs. Dine's Kindergarten News
March 14, 2014
Where else but Indiana can you be playing at recess in the 50's one day and in the 20's and snow the next? I am hoping by removing all evidence of winter from our classroom we will be done with winter weather. We definitely look spring like with our shamrock glyphs up in the classroom. The children continue to work hard and becoming closer to being first graders with only 51 school days left. Every student continues to become a better reader and writer and I am encouraging them to choose challenging books and activities. This week in writing we wrote animal reports on an animal of their choice. I read the book This is My Dog, in which the author adds more and more adjectives on each page, and we focused on using descriptive words to make our writing more interesting. We also began our writing conferences this week. Mrs. Moore and I will be meeting with the students each week to have them read their writing to us and discuss what they did well and how they could make their writing better. We give them the opportunity to decide what they would like for their goal to be to help them become a better writer. They have come up with some great ideas! It is very interesting to listen to them critique their own work. Have a great weekend! Spring is just around the corner!
