Good Morning Everyone,

 As we slowly come to an end I ask that all current  assignments are completed by Friday June 12th. There is an updated list of books about going to Kindergarten  on EPIC! as well.

 We will have zoom practices tomorrow and Monday to finalize last minute details. Our Step-up will take place on Thursday June 18th at 12p.m.

Thank you for everything.

 

 Stay Safe,

Ms. Josephine

Today’s activity will be to read What Do You Do with an idea? by Kobi Yamada.
 Here are a list of questions  for comprehension:
  Level 1: Recall 
At the beginning of the book the boy walked away from the idea. Why did he do that? What did the idea do? How did the boy take care of the idea? Why did the boy decide to take care of the idea? What happened to the idea when the boy began to take care of it?
 Level 2: Skill/Concept 
What is an idea? Where do ideas come from? 
Level 3: Strategic Thinking 
What does the idea in this book look like? Why do you think the illustrator made the idea look this way? Is that what all ideas look like? Think about a good idea you have had. Tell a partner about this idea. What can you do if someone else does not like your idea?  
  Level 4: Extended Thinking 
How do you know if an idea is good? How can ideas change the world? What if you don’t like someone else’s idea?  
 
 
Stay Safe,
Ms. Josephine

Good Morning!!

 
 We are coming close to the end of a very eventful school year!!!
 
Our new unit is called Transformation. It focuses on the changes happening at the end of prek, growing up and starting kindergarten. We will read books about how we have grown, draw pictures and at the very end have our pre-k step-up. 
 
 
Here is the book I would like you to read today, It’s Hard to be Five! by Jamie Lee Curtis. Have some fun with this story and create a drawing of how hard it is to be four/five. Talk about the changes that will happen in Kindergarten, making new friends, having homework and learning to read and write more.
 
Stay Safe,
Ms. Josephine
