What is expected?

This morning Ms. Heather came back to Kindergarten.  Today she introduced a new vocabulary word to us, expected.  We had a wonderful discussion about what is expected of us when we are in school.  When we are using "whole body listening" we are able to do what is expected.  We use many different body parts to help us listen and focus when others are talking.  When we practice this we discovered that we are able to listen in a way that we understand what is being said!  Thanks Ms. Heather for coming and sharing these ideas with us.  If you are interested in learning more about Social Thinking go to their website at:

Later in the morning when I was reading with a child, he made an awesome connection!  He noticed the word expect was in a text he was reading.  He also noticed how the words mean similar things even though they were used differently in both the poster and the text.  Great connection and observation!
