Back into a routine after the holidays - we thought our lives would calm down. NOT!!! Life just keeps coming at us! We're linking up with Teaching Trio for the Sunday Scoop, three things we have to do, two things we hope to do, and one thing we'd be happy to do. Click on this button to see other teachers' Sunday Scoop!
Lisa: The first week back was busy but this one will be even busier with classroom activities!
Linda: Even though I'm retired it doesn't mean I sit around watching TV and eating BonBon's! Lots to do for KinderLit as well as quilting and babysitting!
What are you doing this week? Hope you have some fun!
Why KinderLit Books?
Lisa and I taught together for over 20 years and discovered that the children become more actively involved in their own learning when we make books with them. They take great pride in their work and see themselves as readers and writers long before beginning a formal reading program. Worksheets just don't seem to provide the same kind of motivation to do the best work possible and usually end up in a pile at the bottom of their backpacks.
But not so with their books! Lisa's younger son was in my kindergarten class and in May she asked him what he wanted to save from that year. He selected all his KinderLit books! And we weren't even in business then, had no computers, and hand-wrote the wording on the pages. Scott graduated from college several years ago and still talks about the books he made in kindergarten!
We understand that the children have to practice skills with worksheets but even those are made into books!
