Week 3 in Kindergarten

We are busy at work in our kindergarten classroom.  Last week we began our Geology unit and our Gingerbread unit.  Our first lessons in Geology involve encouraging students to share what they already know about rocks and what they would like to learn about rocks.  Then we examine rocks closely and describe our observations.  In our Gingerbread unit students are listening to different versions of the Gingerbread Man story.  They are learning and retelling the patterned text in the stories and comparing the characters and events.  Scholars are also enjoying the many projects and activities surrounding our units.
