A E I O U . . .

We've been working hard at learning sort and long vowel sounds. 

The students had a wonderful time working in their "vowel group" to create these adorable vowel posters. 

Each group had to design and present a vowel poster. They could use resources around the room or their own creative ideas and come up with words that began with their vowel sound.
It was absolutely incredible watching my young 5 and 6 year old students collaborate and communicate through this project. 
They were brainstorming, problem solving, sharing, and so much more. 
Way to go Kindergarten Friends!

Persuade the Gingerbread Man...

The students enjoyed reading and comparing a variety of Gingerbread books in December. 

One of their favorite Gingerbread activities was writing and discussing how they would persuade a gingerbread man to come with them... 

I just love the way it turned out. Their self-portraits are beautiful and I enjoyed reading all of their speech bubbles. 

We did something similar last year. To check it out click HERE
