A New Look for Class KC

Class KC is lucky to have beautiful curved walls and a new lay out! Yesterday after school Mrs. Erlendson and Ms. Xiaoman rearranged the furniture in a way that would help students move around easily and make good choices inside the classroom. The new layout means that all tables are at the front, there’s more open space, and even a new special place for math lessons and activities!

Today students took advantage of the new space to do a whole class Shape sort!  “Mommy/Daddy” shapes were set up around the classroom and KC students had to help the baby shapes find their home (the matching shape)! Below is a video of the shape sort and a collage of our new class layout!

Our First Full Week!

The first full week in KC was filled with a lot of routines and practice with procedures, but it was also filled with lots of exploration of materials, building relationships with classmates, and hard work! To make sure KC is in line and straight the teacher says, “Arms by your side!” and the students respond with, “Feet in the middle!”line

 

The most exciting part of the week was Writer’s Workshop! The KC writers practiced using their writing folders, how to do WOW drawings, and even started sounding words out and writing the sounds they hear! KC was so brave –  we even had everybody volunteer to share their writing with the class.
