Kindergarten is all about BEGINNINGS.
Literacy is a big deal in kindergarten! We have been learning that there are 3 ways to read a book.. The focus in the classroom thus far has been on 2 of the 3 ways. We have learned that you can Read the Words or Read the Pictures.
Daily Five is a program that we use in Kindergarten in order to make our literacy centers more meaningful. Our goal for using Daily Five is to produce productive, highly engaged students who develop a true love of literacy. So far, we have focused on 4 of the Daily 5 choices.
Writer’s Workshop: Writers choose a topic, draw pictures, add details to their work, label pictures by stretching out words, solve problems, build stamina, and are never done!

I'm sure by now you’ve heard about our 8th grade buddies! We have had a great time meeting and getting to know them! We look forward to morning meetings and lots of fun activities with our new friends! Our new buddies will come visit and work with us once or twice a week for the rest of the year.
