The Diverse Reader's Workshop for Kindergarten

Diverse Readers Workshop for Kindergarten

The purpose of the Diverse Reader's Workshop is to give our students a chance to experience cultures from around the world through language. Understanding that many people speak different languages is the first step in accepting and understanding others.  Plus, learning new words in a different language is fun and engaging!  This year our Diverse Reader's Workshops will consist of community members, partnering with us to bring their language and culture to life through song, dance and/or other hands-on activities.  We will explore a variety of languages starting with Chinese and then moving on to Spanish, German, Arabic, and French, not necessarily in that order. 

This month it was Arabic!

Neal Wilkins went WILD yesterday!

Wild Animals Visit

Neal Wilkins went WILD today with the NeCollins family!
Students got the rare opportunity to touch real wild animals fur, claws, teeth, feathers and horns! They got an up close look at the amazing animals because the NeCollins family does taxidermy. They take animals that have died and make them look life-like again. The children listened in wonder as the animals were explained to them. They got the opportunity to walk through all of displays touching, feeling and examining them...EVEN A BEAR! What a wonderful experience! Thank you NeCollins family!
