Tadpoles Learning About Tadpoles

Help me give my students a book about frogs and notebooks to write about them, create stories for them, use kinetic sand and their imaginations to create their own frog.

My Students

My students are a diverse group. There are children who are still struggling to blend sounds and others are reading on their own. They come from a variety of living situations from a single home to multiple homes. Many have experienced or are living through some form of trauma. Parents gone, food scarce, school is their safety .

Kindergarten is a time of hands on learning that we are all missing out on.

My students are learning at home. This means that the learning is mostly online and not hands on . We created a website to give parents access to online and printable learning but many do not have internet , printers, or paper. Books and journals are not accessible to most so they can not practice what they have learned.

My Project

This project is multi-dimensional. The students will read their book about frogs at home and Answer questions in their journals. They will also write questions they might have about them. Then we will video conference as a class to share our ideas. We will be able to ask each other questions and show what we have learned ( all the while practicing our language arts skills). Finally, they will create with the kinetic sand the life cycle of a frog and share that with all of us.

These supplies will help us to learn together while apart.

Page by page we will read and be the class that we were and still are. Using our website, texts, emails, and video conferencing, we will come together to read, write, communicate, and create. We will share our work and learning . Feeling connected through the commonality of a classroom love of frogs, we will leave the virus behind and we will again be Mrs. H's Tadpoles.
