Today we read the book Kindergarten Rocks by Katie Davis and talked about the problem & solution to the story We also made a list as a class all the things that we thought “Rocked” about Kindergarten.
Then we created a self portrait and worked on completing a by practicing writing our names, writing the sight word “I” and copying the word “Kindergarten”. This really helped with our fine motor skills, sight word recognition, and copying words with comprehension.
As start to finish up with our back to school unit we learned “Wheels on the Bus” song. We discussed how we do not have school buses in Shaktoolik and we saw a video school buses to introduce our students to what a school bus is.
Then we created a graph illustrating how people from our classroom gets to school. The answers consisted of walking, four-wheeler, riding a bike, and by truck.
Students then got to make a construction paper school bus and rewrote the song to fit the initial sound that they hear in their name.
