Exploring The World of Birds!

Today we began a new theme of study!  Birds!  The children began by looking through a variety of non fiction text, exploring attributes and special features of birds on our Smartboard and some of us created writing about what we already know about birds.  Some of the children brought in their own stuffed bird too!  This is a great way for us to make observations up close of what we notice!

I am so very proud of the writing that the children are engaged with.  I see so much independence, confidence and creativity.  So #grateful to be able to share with all of you!

Ms. Marissa and Dr. Seuss

This morning Ms. Marissa read us a wonderful story by Dr. Seuss. "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." As we listened to the story we noticed words that rhyme, lots of color and abstract artwork in his illustrations.  We made lots of connections as readers too!

Ms. Mikala!

This morning one of my former students visited Kindergarten!  She spent the morning with us celebrating our new author study of Dr. Seuss.  She is learning to be a teacher and was very interested in how we use technology to enrich our learning.  We had a wonderful day modeling and being mentors to her and each other.
