Kindergarten enjoyed listening to Author and Veterinarian, Ruthanne MacPete speak about what it is like to write a book and what it takes to be a veterinarian. They also enjoyed meeting her sweet dog. A few lucky students even got to listen to his heartbeat with Dr. MacPete’s stethoscope.
Kindergarten worked on their reading comprehension skills with our shared reading of Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds. The focus of this story was retelling using sequence words (first, next, then, & last). After reading the story, the class worked together to retell the story with details such as character and setting. Their ideas were written down on an anchor chart. Each student then went back to their seat to retell the story using pictures. After their pictures were complete they then had to retell the story to one of their teachers.
