We have had a great week presenting and finishing up the Montessori animal units! All of the students did an excellent job! We spent Tuesday & Wednesday presenting in our classroom to our classmates. This gave them a chance to think about their animal and explain what it needed to survive. It was a great warm up to the presentations we did on Thursday in the cafeteria. We had an open house style and each kid stood next to their book and project and explained about their animal. I received SO MANY compliments about how well they knew their stuff and many couldn’t believe it was kindergarten doing these presentations. The projects will come home today. I will be giving the books in pizza boxes at celebration night.
In Benchmark we have started Unit 9- Meeting Our Needs and Wants. This is always a good unit for kindergarten because sometimes they struggle with “needs”. Since we are a bit ahead in benchmark we will spend 4 weeks on this unit and also tie in some social studies needs and wants lessons throughout.
In Eureka math we have spent the week counting the “say 10 way” then starting to count just normal. The students are completing the exit tickets and those will continue to come home on Fridays.
