A developmentally appropriate kindergarten is like a good home, where children can learn through play, cooking, watching, listening, acting, reading/pretend reading and writing/pretend writing. ~ Dorothy P. Hall & Elaine Wiliams, The Teacher's Guide to Building Blocks ~
Lots of science fun this month with our Force, Motion and Engineering Unit. We created a Thankful Pumpkin, turkeys, enjoyed social group with Mrs. Frank, participated in some modified literacy stations and so much more! It was a great month!
50Th Day of School
I am so HAPPY we made it to Day 50!! When the year started we weren't sure how long in-person learning would last -- this teacher is super excited we made it to the 50 mark!! So we celebrated! Please enjoy these pictures of our 50's Celebration, our STEM Bat Flight and a Storywalk on the playground sponsored by the Alma Library.
