Kindergarten had a fun filled week expressing their creativity, imagination, and dramatic expression. Students collaborated to perform various dramatic interpretations including: different animals, bananas, outer space, vehicles, careers, undersea, the famous “mullet” hairstyle, and many more. Kindergarten enjoyed learning all about the Greek gods and mythology. Young actresses and actors worked in groups to create various frozen expressions for their parts. Ask your young actor or actress what they enjoyed most about drama class with Charleston Stage.
Your kindergarten writer has been diligently learning how to make their “Magic C” capitals. These include capital letters: C, O, Q, and G. Each capital letter begins with a “Magic C” and then continues around to create a specific letter. Ask your child what they know about “Magic C” capitals. Do they have any in their own name?
This week your kindergartener expanded their vocabulary by learning all about the word, accountability. Kindergarteners learned what accountability means, what it looks like, sounds like, and how they can be accountable for each other. Your kindergartener was paired up with a friend and practiced how this will look like and sound like in our classroom. Kindergarteners will meet with their “accountability buddy” during Writer’s Workshop to practice and implement this strategy. As the year progresses, your child will use this strategy during more subjects. Ask your child how they help their accountability buddy.
