This is a bright and active group of five and six-year-old children. They love to create and tell stories. They love to read and be read to. They are quickly learning to work together, which is a vital skill in our world. My children work in small groups and independently throughout the day. This helps them learn to focus and improve self-control issues. Small group activities that let us get up and move help our ADHD tendencies stay under control. We need real reasons to move and stretch.
We grow in all areas by practicing and playing together.
Writing throughout the day in science, social studies, math, and even in art helps us in so many ways. We get noisy, but we learn so much together. We need supplies to grow as readers, writers, and illustrators. We need to show the colors of our ideas. We need ways to be active and help us learn to control our ADHD tendencies. There is so much to learn.
Kindergarten has lots of little pieces. We use letter tiles, number lines, counters and lots of other little pieces of the world all day long. With these chair pockets we can take ownership of our own items, keep them organized and be able to set ourselves up to get to work.
We write in journals daily and use individual word walls for this.
Having our own chair pockets has let us keep our very personal and private stories nearby. They have let us keep personal treasures safe. These chair pockets have let us learn to take responsibility for keeping ourselves organized. The drawback is after two years, our sacks are dingy. We need these new, bright, happy colors to help energize us!
