It was an exciting “whip share” this morning hearing everyone’s weekend activities with the snow and other festive fun! I give every child on Mondays the chance to share one thing they did over the weekend. The other days sharing consists of one or two children who then can answer questions from their peers. Speaking and Listening are important skills in the Kindergarten curriculum.
SPEAKING of Listening, we are working hard on being first time listeners. It is December in Kindergarten, however, in order to be a safe and fun learning environment for all we need to practice good listening skills. I hope you can help with this at home with your child. Remember, a reminder is ok, but more than one reminder, and it starts to becomes a habit that they don’t have to listen the first time. 🙂
I have added more dates for Mystery Reader. You can sign up here. If you have already done so, please give a chance to others who did not. Thank you!
