New toy day in Room 21!
Posted on 01/20/2016

Kinder students from Ms. Hook's room brought in their favorite toy from the holidays and shared details about the toy:  who gave it to them, why they were excited about it and what they like to do with the toy. 

Students then sorted the toys in different ways: hard/soft, human/non-human, and toys with wheels/without, etc.  Kinders sure know how to look at attributes and sort! Next, they discussed gratitude and promised to go home and say thank you for the new toy.

Finally, they spent some time playing with the new toys to strengthen their social intelligence, and to practice self-control and sharing.
