Yay....we made it through the first full week of school! We had an awesome week and the kiddos are already starting to get into a routine. Although, I will say that I believe that they were extremely tired along with me yesterday.
I was very excited because we learned our first math game and played it with a partner. It was our first partner activity so I was a little worried and nervous about how they would do with it. They did an outstanding job! They played it just like I would have wanted them to play. Each student stayed on task and played nicely with his/her partner. Therefore, I was very happy that they are already able to work with a partner nicely. Of course, we have such great kindergarten teachers that they train them so well to do all of this stuff already! Check them out!
I was also excited because this is the first year that I am trying to incorporate some Whole Brain Teaching. I have taught a few things to them so far, but by far my favorite one is the Hands and Eyes. This has so far been such a great way to redirect them if they aren't focused in on what I am teaching. I am excited to incorporate more Whole Brain Teaching as the year goes on.
Next week, I will have a tour of my classroom and will be posting some pictures. I found some really good ideas on pinterest that I incorporated in my classroom this year to help with some organizing. It has worked out well for me.
Hope all of you have a great weekend!
