Happy 50th day of Kindergarten!

It's the 50th day!! 
We dressed in our best 50's gear and started the day practicing writing to 50 and reading color words. 


Since it is 1/2 way to 100 we got 100th day stickers that were cut in half!! 


Next we had writing workshop and what better to write about than being 50 and what we would want 50 of!

Next we did some writing about what we would want 50 of and counted out 50 stickers!



Then we had a sock hop with the whole kindergarten! 



What a fun day we had! Now 50 more days until 100! We already can't wait!

Kindergarten "Teachers"

Today at reading workshop  I introduced the reading strategy: making connections.

 Using the "whole brain teaching" method, I often ask the children to teach what they have learned to others this not only helps them when hearing the information again from others it also cements their understanding.

Take a look at this chart and then watch the video of the "teachers" below.
