Where Children and parents can discuss their thinking, ideas and the world!
We have learned a lot about nonfiction this month. We have written How To's where we teach others how to do different things that we are good about. We have also read a lot of nonfiction, informational books and learned about the different features that nonfiction has - table of contents, photographs, illustrations, captions, labels, diagrams, bold words, glossaries and indexes. We now know that we don't need to read a whole nonfiction book from beginning to end, like we do stories or fiction. We can decide what we are interested in by looking at the table of contents and finding a heading or part that we want to learn about. We are now getting ready to begin thinking of the one topic we want to write about and do lots of research. Soon we will begin writing our All About books. We will also begin to explore the outdoors and look for signs of spring - we can't wait!
We are also busy taking the ACCESS 2.0 test to see how much we have grown and how much easier it is for us to listen, read, speak and write in English.
On another note, February was a busy and exciting month for me. One of my articles was published by Education Week and also featured on ASCD Worldwide Edition - Please feel free to take a look - blogs.edweek.org/edweek/global_learning/2018/01/encouraging_creativity_and_play_lessons_from_korea.html
I was also interviewed by Dr.Linda Hirsch from CUNY Lehman College - we had a fascinating time discussing Kindergarten education in Korea and here. If you would like to see the interview please go to this YouTube link www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4DbNPly5pg&feature=youtu.be
As soon as we can spend some time outdoors and become scientists and writers, we will share what we have learned with you. Until then, enjoy the last days of winter!
