KINDERGARTEN SHARE DAYS
Thursday and Friday
Students are encouraged to bring an item related to fall such as a leaf, mittens, scarf etc.
Please have your child be prepared to talk about that item. Remember share must fit in a small lunch bag. Students are trying not to bring in repeats by developing their listening skills!
Please practice our share script and clues at home:
"Good morning class my name is__________, I've brought something to share. I will now give you three clues. Student shares the clues (it is used with your vision, it starts with an M, etc.) and then says "I will now take three guesses." "Thank you, class, for letting me share." Your kindergartner should be able to speak a bit about their share. I will help the first couple of weeks for share and then I would like your children to try it on their own.
