As a part of Math we have been practicing the concept of sorting using our Treasure Boxes. Our Treasure Boxes contain small items, such as pom poms, popsicle sticks, buttons, teddy bears, etc. The children are encouraged to sort by such things as colour, size, or shape. Many of the children are even able to sort by more than one attribute or come up with some creative ways to group the items! After they have had a chance to sort then we had 'partner time' to explain how they sorted to a classmate. Practicing their oral language skills is an important part of the kindergarten program.
I'm Mrs. MacDonald. Welcome to a window into our kindergarten classroom. My goal of this blog is to give you an opportunity to see some of the things that we are doing at school. Enjoy!
