This week was all about Halloween… and more about Halloween as we decorated our room and looked forward to the big day! Throughout the excitement, the children learned about the term “reflection” and shared thoughts about new things they have learned over the past forty days or so in Kindergarten. Following several group discussions the children reflected upon a new skill they have developed in Kindergarten at this point in the year. As a result, we made a bulletin board outside in our hallway entitled “Harvesting New Skills.” Each child illustrated and wrote about his or her own personal achievement and paired it with an illustration. This activity lays the foundation for our new writing unit about memories that we will begin in early November.
