We were SO excited to have Ms. Maureen here to read to us!!! We celebrated by having cookies and juice, and giving Ms. Maureen our special cards!
This week our story was "Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon". We learned what good readers look for while reading a book! Then we went in our "Quiet Sticky Spots", and practiced reading to ourselves. We read (or looked at the pages) for 2 minutes! We are hoping to make it to 5 minutes by the end of this week!!!
In Kindergarten we teach in a "Workshop" model. We have a "READING WORKSHOP", "MATH WORKSHOP", and "WRITING WORKSHOP" . We use this model because we teach the children as a whole group, they go out and practice it at as a whole group, then they go into CENTERS and work with partners on their learning. The next couple of months, we will be working on different stories that will teach us all the skills we need to get into 1st grade. Take a look at what we will be working on from now until Christmas break....
