This week we finished our conversations about who works at Kloefkorn and began to talk about how to make and keep friends at school. We wrapped up our talk about who works at Kloefkorn with a Gingerbread Man hunt! The students had such a fun time finding clues and searching for our Gingerbread Man.
Our small groups this week allowed students an opportunity to make their own book, predict how many times they thought balls would bounce, and practice answering wh- open ended questions. This is a very important skill that we practice each day in preshcool. You can practice at home by asking wh- questions that don’t have a right answer and allowing your child ample time to answer without interruption. For example, “If you were the Gingerbread man, where would you hide? Why?” “Why do you think _____ happened?” etc.
Our social emotional curriculum focused on how to use self-talk to help remember multiple step directions. You can practice this at home by giving simple multi-step directions such as stand up, turn around, sit down or jump, clap, sit down.
