I have been so motivated to change up things. After 21 years in K I needed a kick in the ---. So many inspiring blogs have done just that. I knew I was in a rut, but could figure out hwo to get out of it. Now my mornning starts with a Message and Greeting. This one comes from Kindergarten Smorgasboard, the shoe Greeting. The kids love this one. I have different ones on sticks and we draw one each day. They ask for this one alot.
I am also encouraged to incorporate Interactive Notebooks. This is one of the word sorts.So much more to do, but babysteps will get me there.
Math has always been more hands on, so using Chinese Jumpropes to make shapes was a no brainer.
What have you been doing differently? I would love to know.
