We are 12 days into the 2014-15 school year, and getting into a nice groove here in KG. This week, we continued to engage in activities, read alouds, and class discussions that foster a sense of community, safety, and well-being in our classroom. Students were introduced to many new routines related to math, literacy, AND science! Highlights include:
