We worked with the The Listening Walk Kindergarten printables for three days. Here’s a bit of the fun we had this week….
We began every morning with this verse. I cut apart the words on the last day and had the kids put it together.
We reviewed the elements of a story.
Practice writing the letter “s” on our poetry page.
Counting Syllables activity
We used a Kindergarten Literacy Big Book that was donated by another teacher to review book title, author, and illustrator.
Cut and paste the author’s name
I created our first counting by 5’s activity. This helped the kids realize that there is a faster way to count (or add) objects. They don’t have this concept down yet, so we will be continuing this activity over the next several weeks.
We got very creative and made our own pictures with the pattern blocks.
We played around with sound by using empty soda bottles. We made our own bottle xylophone by filling the the first bottle with water and then filling the bottles with slightly less than the one before it. We used food coloring to see the different levels of water.
Next we used a wooden spoon to play our xylophone!
We had a rainy week, so for one of our listening exercises we had to sit on the porch and listen.
We used the “Things I Hear” printable to cut and paste our observations.
Then we practiced our public speaking skills by sharing with the class what we heard.
We finally had a nice day to go into Miss Lynn’s
forrest backyard to listen and record our observations.
The best part of the week was making phones out of paper cups and strings. The kids had a blast with this experiment!
Miss Francis, our Spanish teacher, suggested that everyone feel the string vibrate as they talked to their friend.
A few items that we used….
