Mo Willems

Kindergarten has finished up a Mo Willems unit. We read books from three different series; Knuffle Bunny, Pigeon and Duckling and Elephant and Piggie. Children wrote opinion pieces on the books they had read and put these together in a Mo Willems book of their own. We'll show them to you at parent conferences.
We have begun a unit in math that is working with numbers in the teens. We have been doing inventory bags and combining two cards to calculate the total. Currently we are doing number orders where children travel to stations placing orders for toys and checking that their order was filled correctly. They love it! We are talking about story problems. We are still interested in whether we are combining groups or taking groups away. We have also started using cubes to represent things in the problem like pencils or blocks.

Our friends from Ms Willis' class join us for cooking on Thursdays.

We are just beginning our body unit and have put our brains in today. We will talk about what our brain does tomorrow.
