The first day of school we read, Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready For Kindergarten. KA loved that book and still talks about. For the 100th day of school we read, Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day! Please check out our math page on this blog to see how we celebrated!
This week KA is learning how to be reflective throughout our day: math, reading, recess, lunch, single subjects, free choice, etc. When entering class each morning, students choose which of the learner profiles they will be that day. Based on their choice in the morning, students reflect during closing circle to answer the question, “How was I __________ today?”
This past week we learned about being risk-takers. After making Valentine’s Day cards for staff. KA delivered them around the school. Many of the people we did not know. Many of the places we had never been at SIS. We were brave as we went into the offices at Gateside and Parkside. We enjoyed going into familiar places at Mountainside, like the library and art. Afterwards, students reflected on how it felt to give their cards to others they did not know. “It made me happy, ‘cus they were happy!” and “I wasn’t scared after walking inside because they smiled at me and thanked me for the card.”
