We began writing opinion pieces this week in K. Of course, first we needed to discuss what an opinion is! Then the children were asked to write which season they like best, winter or spring, and why, and we responded with pictures and writing. The word “because” was added to our word wall, and children did their best in using lines for writing, which is no easy task. We were proud of their hard work and best effort!
No less important than learning about writing (and all other academics), is play time in Kindergarten (otherwise known as “Choice.”) This is where children build, create, draw, write, play games, learn to work together, pretend play and they learn so much! It is their work time as well. This week many kids enjoyed “baking” and “cooking”, bringing me and Mrs. C sample after sample of things they had made out of play dough. They take orders, so stop by if you in the mood for a *light* snack!
