Empathy

Part of our KG Wellness unit of inquiry (UOI) is learning about empathy and then showing it to others.  We started by talking about what we think empathy means.  Then we read the book, “Hey, Little Ant.”  This helped us see things differently.  Next, we made up skits with friends to tell stories of showing empathy.  KA then watched a video of empathy that KD shared with us about a momma bear and baby bear.  KA shared how they felt and gave other examples of empathy they have shown.  We ended by adding to our meaning of empathy.

iPads

KA has loved using Raz-Kids during reading!  Each student has learned how to operate the app.  A  form with instructions went home for parents.  Please, sign the bottom and return it.  We also learned to use Seesaw with the iPads.  They took pictures and recorded an introduction videos.  Some students have also sent home a few entries they choose of work done in reading/writing.

 

Super Zimpa Visits KA

KA is learning that we all have super reading powers!  Super Zimpa came to visit while Miss Sundquist was in a meeting.  Super Zimpa talked with Superman and relayed what to teach us and specifics about KA.  Super Zimpa reminded us and then taught us we have Picture Power, Pointer Power, Sound Power, and SNAP Word Power. We then practice practiced these powers while reading books in our reading folders.  Ask your KA kiddo to teach you these powers while they read to you at home.
