I have been back one week and still have not seen quite seen everyone (because of the holiday and A/B rotation), but will re-greet everyone by mid-week next week.
Updating all the grade level pages is a few weeks out, because of this slower start. Please forgive me.
One of the first projects I do every year in Kindergarten is a cut paper sunflower. There are several educational reasons, but also because they a just so beautiful and every child can be sucessful.
This project is a great way to see how well students handle scissors and glue. It also has multiple directions, which is challenging for young minds. Each one is quite different which I like to think is a nice reflection about the different personalities with each class....and everywhere.
Here are a few from yesterday's class. Pretty wonderful!
