My kids loved this simple invitation to create yesterday! What can you create with straws and pipe cleaners? Swipe to see some of their creations! The first one is a rectangle and the second one is a happy face.
.
Tomorrow I’m planning to extend this centre by challenging them to create something that is 3D and using ChatterPix Kids to record their work!

Today I spent the day learning about full day Kindergarten 📚 For those of you who don’t know, my district has a 1/2 Kindergarten program. For the last two years I have been lucky enough to have been a traveling teacher between 2 schools. I’ve been able to teach in 3 different schools in 2 years, and gained so many friends and lessons along the way! Next year my district will be moving to full day Kindergarten which I am thrilled about! Being a traveling teacher I will be saying goodbye to my morning school and moving to a new building with my afternoon school. Although I am sad to say goodbye to my students, faculty, and friends, I am looking forward to learning about full day Kindergarten and the year ahead 🎉

This week we started learning about Canadian coins. We co-constructed this pocket chart (I printed these as double-sided coins) to learn names and values. We also sorted the coins in different ways. Students really loved singing the Money Song - they got to stand up if the coin they had in their hand was called! Swipe 👈 to see what we did so far! .

You can find these activities (and so much more!) in my Canadian Coins pack. It’s on SALE until this evening if you’d like to check it out. Direct link in profile ➡️ @mrsalbanesesclass

We have been learning about measurement. These ladies are helping me determine which piece of paper I should use to write a REALLY long note. #earlymath #learningthroughplay #tldsb #tldsblearns #tldsbkteach #iteachtoo #iteachk #iteachkinder #iteachkindergarten #fdk #fulldaykindergarten #teachersofinstagram #iteachfdk #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #teachersofinsta

Our Bird Inquiry took a turn to a deeper look at eagles after several students had questions and misconceptions. This created an opportunity for research and writing and we made a life size female eagle. Everyone wanted to compare their wingspan to that of a female bald eagle! We also watched the #decoraheagles #fdk #fulldaykindergarten

We started learning about money and I finally finished and posted this big pack to TpT! This is my favourite math unit to teach!!! It’s all hands-on fun because children learn best through play. Swipe 👈 to see all that’s included! .

Do you remember the collaborative world map we made to show where the dinosaurs lived? Well before they could come and contribute to the big map, they had to paint a smaller map accurately first. I picked up smaller dinosaur stickers @walmartcanada this weekend, so I I set this centre out today where the kids could add dinosaur stickers to the smaller maps they made last week! We had a quick chat about using up to 10 stickers (which I later modified to 15 when I realized not everyone made a map) so that all friends will have stickers to use for the map. The kids loved this activity and the small stickers were great for fine motor practice!

With all the rain we had last week, our students couldn’t stop talking about the worms they saw! So we set up this invitation to see what bugs the children were interested in researching. .

Using the classics story “The Three Little Pigs”, students were encouraged to build their own house and retell the story. .

Last week we also investigated the question “Why and how did the dinosaurs go extinct?” This was a question many students were wondering about so they were eager to learn! First, we watched the YouTube song “Where did the dinosaurs go?” by Pink Fong. Then we recalled the steps as a group as I wrote them on whiteboards. Finally, kids came to the teacher table at centre time to record our new learning. They drew some amazing pictures to go with the steps😍
