The team of two teachers, Melanie and Vanessa who participated in the Kindergarten Makeover Webcast have agreed to write a regular blog this year to show other teachers how the set up of room is evolving over time. They are joined this year by Sil in the morning so the large space is now filled with 60 little ones in the morning and 40 in the afternoon. Lucky they had a large space! With that many children it is crucial that routines are in place that are easy for the children to follow and that allow some flexibility to meet the needs of a diverse group of children. We will get to know some of the challenges as well as the many joys of teaching Kindergarten. We hope that you will check the blog regularly and follow Melanie, Vanessa, and Sill as they engage in some reflective practice with you throughout the school year.

One Response to The ‘Kindergarten Makeover’ Team Blogs for You

    I am wondering if any kindergarten teachers have attempted to set up Music or Sound centres in their classrooms? I teach music to all grades in a K – 8 school, so I do not have my own Kindergarten classroom. Many K teachers I have worked with have expressed a reluctance to set up these centres because of the noise factor. I am interested to know if anyone has successful incorporated sound/music exploration in their centres.
