A Day in Kindergarten by Mrs. Terry Dunning
Welcome to a glimpse into a day in Kindergarten! You are just in time to help us with our Phonetics! We have learned all but 3 of the letters. Today we will be using our bodies to make various letters, blends, and words. Yes, words with our bodies! It takes a lot of cooperation, coordination, and patience, but we have a lot of fun in the process.
Now that we know what the letters look like, let’s move to our flannel board and see if we can sound out and make words on the board. The students must listen, recognize, and “write” the words on the board. Such smart students! Well done!
Once our Phonetics class is done, we share a story in relation to the letter for the day. Penmanship is next. It’s mighty hard to get those little fingers to follow the gray lines and then make those letters by themselves. Some are quicker and steadier than others, but all work very hard. What a joy to work with such eager students!
Now it’s Math class. We’re going to use our board for Math class, too. Academics done for the day.
Let’s play! I love puzzles, so now a lesson on teamwork. Well done! Thank you, Mrs. Horton for helping us work together.
Now projects. One of my favorite projects is the “Butterfly Project” Each fall I look for and collect the Monarch caterpillar. The purpose – to watch the amazing transformation from caterpillar into the butterfly – a picture of God’s amazing work in the life of a sinner transformed into a child of the King. “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” II Corinthians 5:17
I hope you enjoyed your little visit. Until next time…
