Today we read The Big Orange Splot. In this book, all of the houses on Mr. Plumbean's street are exactly the same. Slowly, each person on the street paints their house, making them all extremely colorful and unique. We discussed how each of the children in KG are different and unique. We all have different goals and need different things to help us succeed. Each student identified his/her goal (or "hope & dream") for kindergarten. Goals included learning to read, making new friends, getting better at counting, and learning new games in PE.
Today, KGP students listened to the book, The Big Orange Splot. We discussed how just like the houses are different and unique on Mr. Plumbean's street, so are we. Students engaged in a discussion about how each of us have different things we are working on and different goals for kindergarten. Each student determined their "hope" for their year in kindergarten.
