Managed Independent Learning

Managed Independent Learning continues to be the highlight of our day in Kindergarten.  Here are some of the things we have been doing for Managed Independent Learning:


Small groups have been conferencing with Mrs. Kurt.  We talk about our writing, add to our stories and this week we got our new writing folders.  These will come in very handy since we will be writing more stories in booklets instead of our journals.  The folders will help us to stay organized.

We have been working on a penguin project to hang on our classroom door.


Here we are using the SMART Board interactively to complete a Math game, using ten frames.

Write the Room has us finding words around the room that we recognize and can read.  Then we make a list of all those words.

Here, Bowie is using the pattern blocks to complete the pattern block puzzles.  We are learning how to work independently during this Managed Independent Learning time and we are getting a little better at it every time we try it.

We read the story "Howard B. Wigglebottom and the Power of Giving"by Howard Binkow and Susan F. Cornelison.  Look at the great story map we made together!

On Friday morning, Mrs. Fleck visited our room for Young Scholars.  We worked as detectives, looking for clues to solve some story problems with her.  Some of the clues were a little tricky, but we did a really good job!  It was fun.


We had a pretty busy week, but we are super excited for our gingerbread houses which we will make with our special guests next Friday morning at 10:30.  Hope to see you then.  Have a great weekend!!
