Cooperative Learning

Today we practiced retelling the story of The Gruffalo, by sequencing pictures from the book and making a retelling strip.

First, we practiced sequencing the pictures as an entire class. Then, we worked in pairs to sequence the story on our own.

When we finished, we practiced retelling the story with each other by using our retelling strips.

At the end, we had just enough time for one lucky pair to retell the story in front of the whole class.

It was a great interactive way for the students to remember the story. We can’t wait to do this with our next read aloud!

Fire Safety

This afternoon, both kindergarten classes and our preschool class, were visited by a few local Dearborn firefighters. They taught us the importance of fire safety and what to do in case we were ever in a fire.

After the presentation, we were able to beat the rain and visit the fire truck! We saw all of the cool tools the firefighters get to use.

Some of us even got to hold them! It was lots of fun. Thank you, Dearborn firefighters! We enjoyed your visit!


Work on Writing

Yesterday we began the 2nd component of the Daily 5 framework, which is work on writing. We practiced building stamina for 11 minutes- it was awesome! Check us out!


Coloring Practice

After reading, Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes, we did some coloring practice. We practiced staying inside the lines and filling in any white spots that were left. We also practiced identifying colors.


Read to Self

Yesterday, we practiced our first few rounds of read to self. We were able to build 5 minutes of stamina for each round! WOW! We can’t wait to continue practicing. Soon we will add in the second component of Daily 5, which is work on writing. Look at us working hard and building our stamina.
