Down on the Farm




 It's Down on the Farm time in our classroom! We have jumped into learning all about farm animals. My kiddos are having a blast. Nothing makes me happier than to see my kinders actively engaged in learning. Their favorite centers are read/write the room and QR codes. They are CRAZY for QR codes!
 We have also began very guided research this week. I am so impressed with my kids desire to learn. They love non-fiction text. Today we research goats. They were amazed that a goat's pupils are shapes like rectangles! They also thought it was cool that they were good jumpers. They all got a kick out of the picture in the book with the goat in the tree!

Hop on over to my store to check out this unit:)

Oral Writing- OH YEAH!!!!!

Words can not express how floored I am by the success of oral writing with my kinders. They are rocking it! They are answering in complete sentences. We are using the capital letter brainy, ending punctuation and the because clapper. They are cracking me up with the ending punctuation. I know my teacher neighbors think my class has lost it. I am thankful that my neighbor on the left is also a WBT lover so her class sounds a lot like mine too!!
We just started the because clapper last week and they are really doing well with it. I am so proud of them. I am looking forward to them being able to put their thoughts on paper. Look out 5 paragraph essays Ms. G's kinders are headed your way!! Tune in for more amazing updates on oral writing. I will post a video soon:)

Hop over to for more information on WBT and oral writing! It is teacher life changing:)

Community helper fun


The kinders LOVED our community helper unit! It was so much fun! I have a classroom full of future teachers, doctors, police officers, fire fighters, a hair stylist and a zoo keeper:) My kinders continue to amaze me with all they are learning! I am one proud teacher!!!
