We started our day by analyzing four different maps. We studied them and compared them to see how they were the same and different. Ask me to tell you about one of the maps.
We listened to the Tortoise and the Hare story again today. We listened closely to learn about the main characters. The Benchmark version of this story is very short, but we learned a lot about tortoise. Then we wrote together. We worked on describing one of the characters in the story. We chose tortoise. We wrote together with the children helping to tap out the words with guidance. I emphasized putting spaces between the words, upper and lower case letters, and starting the sentence with a capital letter. That's a lot! I wouldn't expect kinders at this point in the year to all be able to do those things as they write, and when they write independently, the focus would be on on convention of writing,, but because I was writing on the screen with them, I pointed out all these conventions.
We reviewed what the lesson in the story is, and I directed them to listen closely to the end of fables for the lesson. Ask me to tell you the story of the Tortoise and the Hare.
Have a nice evening!
