I Wonder...

A while back I read this book:

A Place for Wonder: Reading and Writing Nonfiction in the Primary Grades
Click on the book to check out this book on Amazon.

Love it!!!  Now that I am thinking about setting up my Kindergarten classroom for next year, there are several ideas from the book that I am planning to implement. 

I created this paper this year when we were studying forest animals.

 Here are some samples from my kiddos.

I wonder if opossums eat garbage.  I learned that opossums eat garbage.

I wonder if opossums have teeth. I learned opossums have teeth.
I wonder if skunks stab people.  I learned skunks do not stab people __ (?) spray people.

I really am still alive...


I am so sorry for my long absence from my blog - this year has absolutely flown by!  I have still been blog stalking a bit here and there, but nothing like I was able to do last summer.
I was so excited to be able to go to the Cincinnati Blogger meet-up earlier this year and meet so many wonderful teachers!  To be completely honest, I felt kind of like I was meeting celebrities when I met Abby (The Inspired Apple), Michelle (Fabulous in First)  and Amanda (One Extra Degree) - these girls are just so amazing!

I recently found out that I will be teaching Kindergarten next year (I will be replacing my own Kindergarten teacher!), so I am very excited about that and I am already in planning mode for next year.  

I have so many things that I have thought about posting on here this school year - it may take me a little while to catch up!  Look for another post and some freebies soon!
