Inspired by Eric Carle
Kindergartners have been enjoying time in Readers Workshop with Eric Carle books. Young readers explored Eric Carle’s diverse book structures and storytelling by identifying word patterns and making connections between his texts. Kindergarten is learning more than just writing and illustrating from this author!
We Are Problem-Solvers
This week brave writers explored persuasive writing by finding problems and writing in many different ways to reach their readers. Inspired by The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, students have been searching for ways they can make our classroom, school, and world, a better place. Kindergarteners shared ways to solve problems such as messy cubbies, cleaning the art center and litter on our playground. When writers see a problem, they think of how to fix it, and then they write about it! By making signs, letters, songs, lists, or petitions, our students are eagerly convincing their audience into action!
Treasured Stories of Eric Carle
On Monday, Kindergarteners had the opportunity to see a puppet theatre show depicting three different Eric Carle stories. The stories came to life with vibrant illuminating colors that captured the attention of all the children and adults. It was an amazing show and we were thrilled to see the very talented performers from the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia.
