Everything You Need to Know You Can Learn in Kindergarten!

Come join our class of kindergarteners as we learn to work together, grow into voracious readers, become authors of our own original stories, and feed our natural curiosity about the world by developing as scientists.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Look Who's in our Room!

The cover of our first big book of the year
School's out for the year but I thought I'd post a few projects we did a while back.  Happy Summer!

At the beginning of the year we made a big book to help us learn each other's names. I love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom so we used that as a theme. The students drew a picture of themselves for their page. This was their first self-portait and looking back on it now its amazing the growth they've made as artists. In addition, the students made a coconut tree by cutting out and assembling preprinted pieces.  Next, they added the letters of their name climbing the tree. Finally, I glued a photo of each student in the middle of their page. At the bottom of the page, we added the shared writing..."I am -----". We made a table of contents for the book with each student's name and a thumbnail picture of them along with the page number where their contribution to the book could be found. We laminated our pages and bound them into a book for our classroom library.

Carolina's page - "I am Carolina."
Our table of contents - please forgive the glare - lamination doesn't photograph well
