I have been attempting to give the kindergarten students more opportunity for drawing and writing in the the library. They are currently exploring holidays in their unit of inquiry.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
After we read a book about Halloween, Linda Williams’s book, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, I asked the students to think of something they were NOT afraid of, that others might be afraid of. I copied a paper headed with “I am not afraid of” and asked them to draw that thing.
Today one of the kindergarten students asked when they came in with their class if they were going to “write” today in the library. Building up those expectations!
