The Very Hungry Caterpillar!


 The children have been reading and rereading this wonderful story by Eric Carle.  This has become a familiar story.  A familiar story is a story that we know really well and understand.  One of our literacy projects with this story was to create a podcast.  These podcasts are our first ones.  All the children did a wonderful job sharing whatever they wanted to say about this familiar story

Podcasts and Drawings Inspired By

"The Lorax", By, Dr. Seuss


The children enjoyed listening to the story, The Lorax.  Afterwards we had a discussion about the events in the story, what we felt was important, what our favorite part was and why and how the story made us feel.  I was really impressed with the ideas that the children shared in our discussion, podcasts and in their drawings.

Celebrating Writing In A Podcast!


During the month of February we are celebrating  writing and reading in Kindergarten.  We will be having a special Open House on the 21st for everyone to come and see some of the wonderful things we are doing in regards to literacy.  This week the children had an opportunity to create a podcast about why writing is important and how it helps them.  I love how each child has their own interpretation and ideas about their feelings about writing.  Their art work is beautiful too!  The illustrations are things/tools that the children feel help them with their writing.   Most are digital tools!

We read a great story called; How We Are The Same and Different.  The children enjoyed turning and talking about how they were the same and different with a partner after the story.  As a group we came up with a list of ideas that share how we are the same.  This is what we came up with; We are all in Kindergarten, we all live in Vermont, we all go to school at Allen Brook, We Are All Kind, Safe and Responsible, We all work hard, We are learning a lot.

Below you will see the page that your child created.  The page shares how they are different from a friend, then they created an illustration of their idea.  I am so impressed with how the children are beginning to use/recognize when to use spaces between words, where to use capital letters, how to use punctuation and of course that they are writing/sharing an idea by writing a sentence!

The other really interesting thing is that we used an iPad to create our podcasts!  We have an app called; Audio Memos.  This is for recording children read, etc.-children can then hear themselves on playback and/or the recordings the children make can also be emailed! The children are able to record themselves so easily!

Podcasts of The Life Cycle of The Monarch Butterfly


 Created By, Sylvie


The children have been learning all about the life cycle of many different kinds of plants and animals this fall.  We created podcasts of the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly for you to enjoy.  We spent a lot of time reading about this unique life cycle.  One of our favorite stories was The Monarch Butterfly by, Gail Gibbons.  Enjoy the podcasts!  You will see the children's artwork displayed at our first celebration of learning next week!

Paintings and Podcasts of The Very Hungry Caterpillar


We have been reading the story,"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by, Eric Carle.  It is one of our familiar stories because we have read it many times and focused on lots of different features of the story each time we read it.  Your child has created and illustrated their own story of the book too.  Your child keeps lots of familiar stories that we read in Kindergarten in their book bin.  This way during our Reader's Workshop time your child is able to read and practice reading the familiar stories we have read in class.

Each of the children have created their own interpretation of what they think the very hungry caterpillar looks like.  After we created our caterpillars the children were able to create a podcast of the story.  This is a wonderful way for children to practice re-telling a story.  During our Reader's Workshop time we have many opportunities to turn and talk about what we understand about a story after we read it.  Enjoy!

Hello Mrs. D,

Thanks much for sharing such wonderful recordings! Listening to Sabrina's voice makes our heart warm up! Please keep them coming. Thanks, Giovanna & Dan Butler














Podcasts of Our Dreams For The Future


Our ideas were inspired by Martin Luther Kings Dream.  We enjoyed reading a book written by Martin's sister, Christine.  The story reminded us of how important it is to be kind and treat others the way we wish to be treated.  The watercolor art work and voices are from 5 and 6 year children who care very much about each other and the world.  Thanks for listening.................
