Wow, where does the time go? It is my goal this year to get back on my blog and post all of the fun things we're doing in kinderland! This year is bound to be fun and different as we are using a new curriculum in both reading and math. How many of you out there use Engage New York? I've spent a lot of time this summer looking over the math and I'm pretty excited about giving it a try! Whew, it takes A LOT of prep though!! It is definitely not a "I can take a peak in the morning and have everything I need and know exactly what I'm doing" kind of curriculum. At least not for kindergarten. Manipulatives, manipulatives, manipulatives. I've spent the summer creating a math tool kit for each student. At the beginning of each lesson they will grab their tool kit, which has all of the manipulatives in it, and be ready for whatever the lesson is. Sounds great but we'll see how it works real time when we start back to school. I will definitely keep you posted!
I've been working on a few other things as well. I will be posting pictures soon so stay tuned!
Hope you've all had a great weekend!
Lots of love,
