Celebrating Diversity

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Wed, 10/05/2022 - 07:44

n our class we have been celebrating diversity along with our academics. Each morning class members gather to discuss likes, dislikes and ideas unique to each student. In our class, our favorite foods are; treats, tostadas, lunch meat, and octopus. Our favorite countries are; Portugal, Mexico, Thailand, Russia, and the USA- in fact, some of our students are bilingual! Everyone agrees, the Recreation Center has some scary water slides- but if you conquer your fears, they are the best, ever!

In kindergarten, our littlest learners have been working hard in math learning about 2D “flat” shapes and 3D “solid” shapes. We used play dough, sticks, and string to create, classify, and compare different shapes.

Letters and Sounds

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Thu, 09/29/2022 - 12:13

Many students at our school are trying very hard to learn their letter names and sounds. One of the most powerful activities I've seen is to be able to sing the alphabet song as the kids point to the letters. Letter names are a foundational skill for all of us. Kids need to be able to anchor sounds they make to a letter that they know the name of.  Singing along as they point to letters helps them to really know their letters on a deep level. As my students have been doing this I've seen great gains, and they've become better readers and writers.
