We made it through Monday!!! Woot-woot!! I don't know about you all, but Monday has always been the hardest day of the week for me!
Tonight I am linking up with Kelly and Kim's Kindergarten Kreations for their Markdown Monday linky party. I am going to mark down two of the products my team and I will be using in the upcoming weeks. Each product will be marked down $1.00 for the entire week.
First up is the packet we will be using to introduce the concept of character and setting with our kinders. This packet is full of activities that will help us determine if the kiddos understand the importance of matching up the character to the setting and vice versa.
Second is the packet of activities that will help us understand if our kinders can differentiate between the job of an author and an illustrator. They will be doing various activities, including sorting the tools each would use, as well as drawing and labeling the tools an author/illustrator would use and writing about how they would use them.
For this week only, each activity packet is marked down $1.00, so make sure to grab a set before the price goes back up!!
Make sure to head on over to Kelly and Kim's Kindergarten Kreations to see who else has linked up for Markdown Monday. Teachers from all grades and special areas link up, so you'll most likely find something that can work for you!
My kinders got to meet their 5th Grade Buddies for the first time today! We will pair up with them throughout the year to do different activities, and our first was Reading on the Green, where we went outside with our Buddies and sat on our towels and blankets and got a chance to read to our Buddies and have them read to us. It was so much fun, even if there was a very slight drizzle happening...we were rained out last week, so today was our Rain Date!! :-) Do your littles pair up with an older grade, or if you teach an older grade do they pair up with a younger grade? I would LOVE to hear the different types of activities you do together!!
