Children can create! (217 out of 365) #blogaday

It is important to let your students come up with the rules for the class, or summaries of what we did. At Kindercare, we write down the words that the children say during our “what we learned today” section – it is important for them to see the phrases that they said, and it allows them to increase their vocabulary. If the adults are always changing what the students write into more “sophisticated” language, it is not helping anyone.

Bewildering blends (160 out of 365) #blogaday

“Glowstick”

“Playground”

“Globe”

“Sticker”

These were some of the words I received when teaching a lesson today on blends. I was expecting “star,” “glass,” “place” – so was amazed at the Kindergarteners for coming up with such distinct words! It was a private school setting, which meant the environment they are brought up in is much more well-off. BUT STILL, they are 4 and 5 years old 😮
