Below, enjoy a peek inside our Kindergarten classroom!
A sample daily schedule.
Our “Touch Cue” wall in our reading corner.
In our Number Corner we count the number of days we have been in school with 10-frames and links, add to weekly/monthly collections, practice fact fluency, work with the number line between 0-50, and work with patterns on our calendar.
Here is our Magnet Center with our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom inspired magnetic tree and our class goldfish named: Fish, Lemon, and Tangerine. Here children work with abc magnets to build names, words, and play beginning, middle, and ending sound games. They can also use magnetic pattern blocks to create designs and Magnetos to build crazy magnetic contraptions.
Our Dramatic Play area is currently set up as a “Kitchen” though this changes throughout the year to become a Pizza Restaurant, a Farm Stand, a post office, and more!
Our class behavioral incentive program was inspired by the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud.
Children are recognized daily for their “Bucket Filling” behaviors (Acts of Kindness and Respect). Their name and action is written on a heart or star. Periodically throughout the week Bucket Filling Cards are read aloud to the class and then added to our bulletin board. At the end of each month cards go home to be shared and celebrated with families.
