Okay moving beyond my infatuation with KinderLiteracy HA! Transportation week was a true hit! We made this “things that go” bubble chart and the kiddos loved that I brought in the pictures to illustrate each way as well!
Our transportation went to the next level we we got to take a quick trip to our local airport! The kiddos had a blast and it’s so exciting to be able to offer them an experience they may have never had before!
Here is our Three Little Pigs living anchor chart and we will be saving these charts through the five weeks so the kiddos see how the weeks build! This week we only added the characters, but next week will be characters AND the setting 🙂
Like I mentioned unit two of KinderLiteracy is all about RETELL! I’ve included these great retell cards that work perfectly for whole-group retell and I’ve also placed them into a center for the kiddos to retell with!
Then, we made retell sticks so the kiddos each could retell the story!
We also made these retell houses using our milk cartons! On each side of the house the kiddos constructed a house! We used yellow and brown paper for the sticks and straw..and then I created the bricks on red paper for them to cut out! We will be having a retell celebration with our parents at the end of the 5 weeks so we will be keeping all of our retell goodies in a large ziploc bag until the parent presentation day!
In math we continued with work with numbers to 10 and add in 1:1 counting along with more, less, and same! Below are a few snap shots of the “games” we have been playing…on Friday the kids swore they earned game day Friday because math was just that much fun…little did they know it was planned all along! I really think that’s how our kids need and want to learn math….through actual HANDS-ON exploration! All of these “games” below come from my KinderMath Number Sense packet which you can view HERE!
