Playing with Predictions

Today Mrs. Kitson read us the book, Duck on a Bike, by David Shannon. Mrs. Kitson stopped reading the book and asked us what we thought was going to happen next. We learned what the word prediction means. When you read story books at night it is a fun idea to try this. Ask me what my prediction was. We made cool pictures with beautiful stuff. We talked about the letter P. No one has a P in their first names. Two of our friends had P's in their middle name or last name. We are started to learn why our parents picked our names. We played a game with dominoes. We played Chitter Chatter with Mrs. D. We also practiced telling our own stories. In the gym we did an exercise video for kids. We were so tired and thirsty. It was a good workout. We had fun playing at wonder time in the afternoon. It was a fun day in Kindergarten.
