We also started our Very Hungry Kindergartener book this week. Each month we complete another page for this book and at the end of the year I bind the books and send them home. My 16 year old did this when he was a kindergartener and I loved watching his growth through the year as a author and illustrator.
Here is my link to the entire year of The Very Hungry Kindergartener.
We also introduced our first IB unit of the year. This unit falls under How we express ourselves and we are learning about the 5 senses. My kinders are really excited to explore with their five senses and we started by exploring popcorn.
I haven't started my math work stations yet, but the kids are really enjoying the time we spend each day on our calendar books. I continue to introduce a variety of math activities so that when we move into work stations the activities will not be unfamiliar.
I'm pleased with how my kinders are adjusting to our busy schedule and continue to be active and involved learners.
