I used the writing paper created by Deedee Wills to help them write some sentences about the flag, and I am real proud of the writing some were able to do.
Don't drop the flag.
It is on the moon.
I love to see that they are remembering to leave spaces between words, use capitals and periods, sound out words and spell a lot of words correctly. That is a lot to learn in 100 days of school when you are only 5 years old! And they actually remembered some of the facts about the flag, even though it didn't seem like they were listening much...
As I was reading to them about our country, one of my little boys shouted in a very excited voice, " My mom wasn't born in this country -- she's an ALIEN!!" It was so funny!
We exchanged Valentines on Monday and that is always a special day in kindergarten. They thought it was great to get all those cards -- especially the ones with CANDY! Me, too -- especially a chocolate apple for the #1Teacher!
