In our small group reading group we read An Orange in January. We made connections to the story. We talked about our favorite fruit. Then we shared a juicy orange.
Sixth grade reading buddies! Mrs. Goertzen's sixth grade class came and read with us! First we read our early readers to them, then they read books to us! We are planning to make this a regular event!
Cool Beans! If you have missed it, here's the story about Cool Beans! It is our whole class reward system for behavior that is on track or above and beyond expectations! This is a hard-working bunch of students and they earn rewards very quickly! Because it is so important in Kindergarten to learn about ways to organize numbers and learn number sense, I put ten frames around our beans over the winter break. Students did a fine job knowing when we had a row of 5 before, but it is organized in a way that makes sense and should help them count even faster now.

If you go to youtube you will find a plethora of color word songs, just like the this one. I woke up with this song in my head this morning.
