Reflection: Joy What Can You Make From a Little CLoud? - Section 1: Hook


I want to make sure that my students get the most from their kindergarten experience, and sometimes they just have to experience some fun.  When the lesson starts with a fun activity, like laying on the playground looking at the clouds, I think the students come in ready to check out the rest of the lesson--what else will we do today? The atmosphere in my classroom is not just one of a learning place, but of a place of exploration.  I want to help my students build memories that they can carry with them for a lifetime.  

  Sometimes it is just fun!
