A Great Start

We had a great first three days in kindergarten. Children participated in a variety of games to learn names and a little bit about each other. We marched around the room to a drum beat to learn where materials are stored and practiced how to line up when the drum beat stopped. We learned new rules and routines in the hallways, in the cafeteria and on the playground. On Thursday and Friday, scholars spent a few minutes exploring their book bags during Reading Time. On Friday, if you had been in the classroom during Writing Workshop, you would have heard students singing "Where Do You Start Your Letters - At the Top!" and stomping their feet and wiggling their hands to a "get ready to write" song.
