We completed our first full week of kindergarten!
We spent a lot of the week working on routines and foundational skills, but we also started our curriculum. We have a set of standards that help guide us in what we spend time learning.
One of our social studies standards states that students should recognize symbols of our country. We learned the Pledge of Allegiance and also learned about our flag. We used a brace map to draw each part of the flag and then the entire flag together.
I loved the flags that each student made about themselves! It helped our whole class get to know each other!
We have done several activities to work on fine motor skills this week. We have spent time cutting and talk about the proper way to hold scissors each time. I've seen improvements already!
