We've had a fun and busy few weeks in kindergarten. A few of our kids performed a Reader's Theater. In our new reading curriculum, we have a reader's theater component. We read books and practice fluency and expression. Then, we can perform for our classmates. It is so much fun for kids to have an audience. Mrs. Zayats has been pulling groups of kids to make masks to go along with their reading. Each child reads their lines, rather than simply memorizing.
I also wanted to share this project that one of the girls brought in for show and tell. She made a diorama at home with her sister. When she brought it in to share, she told us all about the animals and toys she used. She told us about the land and water, and what she thought the animals might do. I loved the way she was able to express her ideas through art and story telling.
