The parent shared; “It was cute she set up our spare room as a classroom and did the “smart board”morning message with schedule. Picked a leader and then we did: Exploration, Art, Tech Lab, Lunch, Recess, Rest Time, Gym and Bus/Home.”
What you can’t read is that on her morning schedule my student has listed blogging on her kidblog and Skyping as the days activities. This made me smile and also reflect a bit about what this student found important/worth mentioning in her Kindergarten in her home.
I love the laptops set up with chairs too! All ready for blogging and collaborating through Skype!
As a Kindergarten teacher I have opportunities to use a variety of technological tools to enhance and enrich what we explore in Kindergarten. So many things come to my mind about this example of what my young students understand and enjoy about their Kindergarten experience. I am reminded about the importance of having tools that offer reflection, connecting and collaborating. Even our youngest students are able to play and share what they experience. The relevance of what I am doing is important here as well. It is clear that this child extends and shares what she experiences in Kindergarten in such a rich and playful way at home with her family.
