On Friday we took part in an exciting presentation by the New England Aquarium all about tide pools. We learned about what tide pools are as well as about the creatures that can be found living in tide pools. We were lucky enough to be able to see these creatures up close and continue our learning through touching and seeing!
This week in writer’s workshop we kicked off our new writing unit: Teaching Books. We are learning that there are different types of books that authors write. Some books are written to tell a story and others are written to teach. As writers we have begun learning that we can teach others about things that we know a lot about. To help us get started we wrote a class book to teach our readers about tide pools based on what we learned on Friday. Ask your kindergartner to tell you about the page they added to our class book!
