Wow. Kindergarten is a very busy place!!!! In the 5 half days and now 2 full days, we have learned a lot. We began the year reading Brown Bear and talking about the colors. We also sequenced the story and retold it by making marker dots in the correct order. The children practiced sorting into color families by bringing a toy from home to place on the correct color of our mural. This year I added something new. In the past, I have always let them glue on the characters from the story. This year I had them draw the characters and water paint them. We traced them with a black marker, cut them out and added them to our mural. We also sorted skittles by color. They really enjoyed this activity. Ok, I must admit, I liked it a lot too!
Sorting our toys by color
We read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and discussed how his choices and attitudes affected his day. We made "Alexanders" and decided we would make good choices and work on having good attitudes.
This is at my door.
