This website is designed for kindergarten students as they start a unit on the ocean. The lessons provide information on marine animals in their natural habitat, the five ocean layers, and provides different ways that students can help conserve the ocean. Through this website it is my hope that students develop a newfound curiosity for the ocean, including its creatures, and develop an understanding of the harmful effects humans have on the ocean, and ways they can participate in the conserving of the ocean.
This post-assessment is intended for kindergarten students who have been learning about making healthy choices. The choice of lesson is based off of Oregon Standard: HE.7.K.1- Identify healthy practices and behaviors that maintain or improve personal health. In line with the standard, students are asked to read the questions and choose the healthier option. This post-assessment would be given in a 1:1 environment at the end of the lesson to see what information the students understand from the previous and current lessons. The use of the 1:1 environment would allow for the teacher to assist each student and answer questions when needed. Depending on the results of this post-assessment, the teacher can decide to move deeper into the lessons or refresh on the tested information.
Using Tour Creator I have created a virtual tour of some key places in San Ramon, CA. This could be used in a community lesson to show students different places in the city they live and provide new information about those places. If this is a decided activity to do in the classroom, the students could create their own tour of the places they think of as their community.
This is a interactive Google Slides quiz about how colors correspond with feelings. This quiz is for kindergarten through first grade and will be used to test the students on their knowledge of the different colors and which of those colors go with what emotion. Students will be given a scenario about how a classmate is feeling and will have to choose the correct color for each classmate’s emotion.
In my public domain search I found three pictures of different insects that can be found locally. I would lead kindergarten students in a “close reading” of the images in a whole class setting before we read a story on different bugs in order to activate prior knowledge. My guiding questions would include:
How are these bugs similar? How are they different?
Have you ever seen any of these bugs in person?
What kind of food do you think these insects eat?
Can you think of any ways that these insects can help each other?
