Encouraging literacy in kindergarten October 16, 2014

It’s always so exciting to see when the children start to put what we’ve been talking about in class into their daily practice. Today during Learning Centre time, I told the class they could use the book “Changing Colors” and could use the special “teacher pointer” if they wanted. After a bit I went to check on them and this is what I saw.



During our Literacy time I have been telling the children about the “habits of good kindergarten readers”.

We know that in kindergarten we:   point to the words we are reading.

hop from word to word, we don’t slide our pointer finger under the words

use pictures to help us tell the story

Every day they never cease to amaze me how much they take in, and how excited they are about learning!
