I know, the election is over but students did vote!! The results were tallied and President Obama won. The kids also voted on what type of pet the president should have. A dog was the clear winner!
Students practiced writing each in their Writer's Notebooks. They found a narrative and used a Post-It to create each type of lead. Here are a few examples.
We also focused on veterans and Veterans Day. The kids listened to read alouds and listed characteristics of a veteran. Job's dad came in to talk to the class. Students were quite excited to have him here today!!
On Friday afternoon we had a Veteran Day Celebration. The kindergarteners planned and prepared a celebration honoring veterans, police officers, and firefighters.
During the celebration Skype was used to ask Troy Johnston questions about his job as a soldier and daily routine.
Remember to thank a veteran for his/her service!!
