I taught full-day kindergarten for 14 years and have spent the last 2 years as a kindergarten and first grade strategist working all over my district. I am excited to say that this school year I will be back in my own kindergarten classroom!! While I loved working with kinder and first grade teachers and their students, I missed having a class of my own.
I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a masters in curriculum and instruction. I am currently working on my doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction at the University of North Texas. I hope to one day teach at the university level. I love what I do and want to pass on all that I have learned over the years to fellow teachers and students!
Some of you have been asking for this recording sheet, so I thought I would post it. This idea came from Kim Jordano :)
I gave students a pre-cut bat shape. Then they used small squares to make the eyes. They clipped all four corners on each square and rounded to make a circle. I gave them a rectangle to make the mouth. They clipped the bottom two corners and rounded.
I gave students one object at a time to measure. They worked in small groups at their table to complete the project.
