It's time to start thinking about those Leprechaun traps!
This is the project note that goes home on March 1. The trap will be due on Friday, March 16 this year. Those tricky Leprechauns will visit our classrooms over the weekend and we will discover the party aftermath Monday morning.
Oh my! They get us every year.
We want to use this blog post to point out the importance of graphing lessons in kindergarten. Please don't downplay these lessons simply because your students are five! Graphing activities allow you to get more bang for your buck when it comes to your teaching.
In this first step, students need to sort their candy hearts by color. They need to prepare their sorting mat and handle the hearts. This step is not to be overlooked. Hands-on activities are huge for the 5 year-old child. Remember, experiences like these are a precursor to the abstract lessons of first grade.
(we like to get the smaller candy heart boxes from Target)
Many of our hands-on sorting & graphing activities can be found in our own Mega Sorting Pack. We used manips that are fun, seasonal, and simple to find. These lessons can be followed with similar homework/center activities, which are included because we are big on immediate reinforcement of our lessons. Have fun!
Here We Come to Save the Day!
We are three energetic kindergarten teachers who want to share our kinder experience with you!
