Long Ago and Today

We are finished with our bears unit.  We had such a fun time learning all about bears and listening to fictional bear stories.  On Monday, they listened to Bear Feels Sick.  For their writing assignment, I stopped the story before I read the ending, they then went back to their seats and using their inventive spelling wrote what they think the ending will be.  They also drew a detailed picture.  On Tuesday, I read them Bear Snores On.  We talked about stories that are reality (non-fiction) and fantasy (fictional).  They put together a graph with examples of each kind of story.  On Wedneday, they listened to The Little Polar Bear.  We did a story map as a class.  Each table had a part of the story map that they had to fill out.  On Thursday, we started the morning with the 5th grade choir concert.  Then a Native American drum and dance group performed.  It was amazing!  When we got back to the room they listened to Little Polar Bear Take Me Home.  We went to library after that.  On Friday, we started the morning with our awesome 5th grade reading buddies.  It is so much fun to see the Kindergartners reading to the fifth graders.  When we got back to the room they listened to Little Polar Bear and the Reindeer.  Then we talked about all the LIttle Polar Bear stories and how they were alike and how they were different.  In math, we are still working on number sense.  

This week it's all about Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow on Monday.  We will discuss about what is different from today as Kindergartners and when they were babies.  Discussion will also be about what will they be able to do as they get older.  On Tuesday, we will talk about LONG AGO and today.  What is different about long ago when grandma and grandpa were their age compared to today.  The rest of the week we will learn all about the story of Thanksgiving.  In math, we will start number stories and learn about the 4 point rubric.  They will learn about more or less and putting numbers in order.
