Down By The Bay

 We love singing Down By The Bay on repeat and creating our own rhymes. It's so catchy and fun to sing (especially with jazz hands). I created this little song book for my kiddos to create their own rhyme. It's one of their favorite books to read.

We did more rhyming practice in our interactive notebook.
Take a look by clicking the picture below.

Back to School!

Kindergartners grow and develop so much from August to May! Seeing this growth is so rewarding as their teacher. Here is a free activity to do at the beginning of the school year and again at the end of kindergarten. This makes a sweet end of the year keepsake! Kindergarten is such a big year!

How things move

We started exploring how objects moved in science. At the beginning of the unit I asked everyone to bring in an object that moves. Then we took turns sharing out how each object moves. Everyone loved showing the toy they brought and how it moved. Then we sorted the objects by how they move. The kids used this venn diagram to record their findings and as a class we used two hula hoops to sort the real life objects.
Then we talked about the ways objects move. We learned that they can move quickly or slowly, in a straight or jagged line, backward or forward, upward or downward, or in circles. We made these anchor charts for all the ways objects can move.

We also discussed how objects can move fast and slow. We sorted the pictures and made this anchor chart. Motion: Push and Pull, Fast and Slow is a great book to add to your unit. We read it before sorting the objects.

For shared reading we read this book using our interactive board.
 You can find everything in my How Objects Move unit available on TPT. You can check it out here.
