Every kindergarten teacher knows there are certain milestone objectives that our students need to know in order to go to first grade! Our students also need to practice language, asking and answering questions, working together with a partner, and listening and speaking. This is a practice binder that I used with my students and they loved it. I saw great success with language growth, my students speaking in complete sentences, and students learning those important milestones very quickly . I had them work in pairs and it was successful because the questions and answers are in a structured conversation and routine. It’s valuable repetition set up in a fun way so those key concepts like shapes, colors, numbers, letters, sight words, days of the week, months of the year, and writing practice are available EVERY DAY! We called this our “friend binder” because students grow from each other and take ownership of their learning!
This binder works best for the Pre-K, kindergarten, and lower ELL classrooms.
