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.
