This morning Ms. Ali visited Kindergarten for our weekly OT Challenge! We explored paper and the different lines that paper has.  One important idea is to always write on the line.  Otherwise the letters and numbers you write  are in space!  This makes it hard for people to understand our ideas.

Piggie and Gerald: ThanksTo The Flynn Theater!

This afternoon we had an artist in residence.  Ms. Jenny showed us "how to" express ourselves with our voices, faces and bodies.  It was fun.  We were getting ready for the Flynn performance of Piggie and Gerald on Tuesday.

Creating Practice Opportunities: Enhance Our Thinking

 

This afternoon we explored using the Smartboard as a way to help us think mathematically.  We explored equations, subitizing and numbers that are more and less.  The children had fun collaborating with each other and sharing their ideas.

Ms. Ali Visits Kindergarten!

Today Ms. Ali visited Kindergarten.  She talked to us about a new strategy when using a spoon.  We explored this new technique with applesauce.  We also met the challenge!  We all were able to eat our applesauce successfully without spilling any on the rug.

Every Wednesday, Mrs. Ali visits Kindergarten to teach us a new skill.  She is an occupational therapist. Today we explored scissors.  It was really fun.  We learned about the Berry Strategy and the Rainbow Strategy.  Be sure to ask us about what the strategies are.  They both help us cut and trace straight sides to learn the names of shapes.
