|Playing the freeze game|
This year in kindergarten, your child will be learning to read so we started the year off learning about reading structures such as how to hold a book, how we can sit and read quietly and talk about pictures.
We will also be PLAYING (yay!!!!) in kindergarten! Play is an important part of learning and through it, children learn so much! We will have language through play almost every day and this month, we started off by learning about the different centers. So far, we've learned about art center and puzzle center.
In art center, students can use different art materials including beautiful junk (repurposed materials) to create any kind of art.
We also started learning about thinking maps. Thinking maps are ways we can organize our thinking. This week, we learned about circle maps, which we use to list and brainstorm! We created circle maps about ourselves and also ideas for stories.
