This week we began exploring contractions. Students learned to form contractions by squeezing the words together, removing a vowel, and adding an apostrophe where the vowel was deleted. Every student got the opportunity to make contractions using their dry erase boards.
I love teaching kindergarten literacy at STEM! It is amazing to be a part of the reading and writing growth of a kindergarten student. You get to see kids move from knowing some letters and sounds to being enthusiastic readers and young authors.
