It has been a fun and exciting summer moving myself to a brand new city and school! I am now teaching solely kindergarten this year and all kindergarten classes are split up into 2 groups. One part of the class goes to school in the morning and the other part of the class goes in the afternoon. This is to help get students used to coming to school if they have never been before. We spent a lot of time the first day on procedures and school expectations. However in Mr. Bowen’s class we do have some fun activities planned for this week. Students came in with all of their supplies and as a school policy we keep their supplies in the class and share them. We had the students and parents sort the supplies so they are all ready to be stored and accessed when needed.
When talking about rules and procedures we read the story “No David!” by David Shannon. We discussed rules that David broke at home and talked about they applied to the rules at school. Then we started on making David Popsicle stick puppets. When they are all finished we will use the puppets to retell the story. I got the David puppets from here!
