    About Classroom Photos...

    A Math Center Activity
    This easy to construct activity has pre-k and kindergarten children reading numerals on a sectioned-off cardboard form and clipping the correct number of clothespins to each section. On the back of the cardboard each section has the corresponding number of dots, enabling children check their own work. In addition to numeral recognition, one-to-one correspondence, and counting, this activity promotes fine motor skills as children manipulate the spring-type clothes pins.

    Pocket Chart Center
    In this photo, a kindergarten student sorts and posts word cards to "build" the poem shown on the chart beside the pocket chart, checking with the original to keep himself on track. The poem is one the children read together each morning during Circle Time while the teacher or a student tracks the print with a pointer. Not visible in the photo, the question mark is on a separate card in order to draw children's attention to proper placement and use of that punctuation.

    The poem:

    January
    Snow and ice,
    Ice and snow,
    When you melt,
    Where do you go?
