I teach Kindergarten to students in a K-4 urban school district with a high percentage of students receiving free and reduced-price lunches.
Many have very little school experiences prior to coming to my class.
They have a lot of challenges at home but come to school every day very eager and ready to learn. Although we are learning while on Zoom, the kids are still excited to learn!
My Kindergartners are learning social skills, problem solving skills and discovering who they are in my classroom. They love to learn through play, hands-on activities and arts and crafts.
I believe each child deserves a wide variety of experiences to help develop a life-long love of learning.
I never thought I would be teaching Kindergarten remotely. My students have been working hard on the work they've been assigned and it's been hard because most of the learning in my classroom is through hands-on activities. Learning on line has been a challenge but we are moving forward and making the best of the situation.
The use of puppets to teach letters and sounds is an engaging way to interact and explore the knowledge and understanding of the world.
Children learn to converse and formulate their thoughts and words to best convey their messages. One very effective way to develop children's language skills with puppets is to role-play to model oral language.
I will be able to use these items when we return to the classroom for whole group lessons and free choice time.
