Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

We began our new unit on transportation this week and we started it off with a book as a song called, “We All Go Traveling By“.  We then created a bubble story map and filled out the main idea and details of the story.  Students helped recall the modes of transportation were featured in the story and the sounds they make.

At the end of the story everyone ended up at school so we created a bar graph of the ways that we get to school in Shaktoolik.  Then we wrote  about how we got to school and created cutouts and illustrations.

Sight words have been a huge focus during literacy workshop this year.  We have been looking for more ways to make sight words more fun and interactive and I found letter beads.  So as a center, Kindergarteners got to create their own sight work necklaces during their workshop time!

For our daily story tree read-aloud we finished reading the beginner chapter book “Father Bear Comes Home”.  The story ended with a “cliff-hanger” where baby bear dived into the river in search for a mermaid.  For writing as a class we discussed what makes a good ending to a story.  Student’s then wrote their own endings to the story.
