Reflection is a difficult task for our little ones. They can't remember what happened last week, much less the beginning of the school year. This is an activity that went along with the story we read and gave them an opportunity to start reflecting on their time in Kindergarten.
We read the Very Hungry Caterpillar-the Eric Carle classic. Then I asked them to switch gears a little bit. We went over how people can be "hungry" to learn or can "devour" books and what those phrases meant. Then I asked them to think about what they learned over their year in Kindergarten and much like the caterpillar in the story--what would that help them become.
Here are some examples of what they came up with:
subtracting, science, math, adding-now I'm unique. :)
I really LOVED that is wasn't all just reading and math-some wrote that they learned about sharing and friendship too! :)
