We use an amazing writing program in kindergarten called Kid Writing. We LOVE IT!
One of the strategies is something that most of us already know- surround the children with the written word.
We love the clever ideas for posters that help the children with some popular word endings, and have them posted around the board at the front of our room so that they can be seen from the tables.
Some of them are "The King if ING",
the "Wiz of IS,"
the "Star of ARE,"
and the "Hand of AND."
Today, I introduced the "Glove of Of."
After the kids left I turned to wipe off the board, only to notice this:
Yeah. I was flipping off the class MOST of the day. The shocking part? No one noticed. Not me, not my para, not the 22 fifth-grade bookbuddies, and not even FRANK.
Santa has EVERYONE distracted these days.
