Phew! We made it through the first week of Kindergarten Phase in!
This was a very busy and exciting week. We focused on getting to know each other and routines/procedures. One of the class favourites was our Find Someone Who game. Students had to learn something about their new friends and the share it to someone else. We sang the Mingle Mingle song.
We spent a lot of time reading stories together (The Pigeon has to go to school, No David, Superworm, First Day Jitters, and My Teacher is a Monster) and discussing the lessons learned.
We talked about our expectations for our classroom and how we want to treat our toys, equipment and each other.
We also created our Student Job anchor chart. We discussed what each of our roles looks like, sounds like, and feels like.
We can't wait to get busy next week.
One more day of Phase in and then it is all systems go on Tuesday when we will begin the full day and full teaching schedule.
