Teacher Cathy: What would you like me to say about your counting?
Speaker 2: Great job.
Teacher Cathy: Great job. I agree. One way I get my children to verbalize their accomplishment is through writing an anecdotal note on their work. Great job, exclamation marks. And so, I'll ask them, "So, what do you wanna tell me about your counting?"
What would you like me to say about your counting or your recording.
Speaker 3: That you helped me ...
Teacher Cathy: That I helped you?
Speaker 3: ... count my collections.
Teacher Cathy: Oh. Teacher Cathy helped me count my collections? To me, as a teacher, it's really important for my kids to feel excited about learning. And what I wanna do as a preschool teacher is to send them onto kindergarten wanting to go to school.
Amanda: 10,11,12,13 ...
Teacher Cathy: Wonderful. Good counting Amanda. What should I say about your counting?
Teacher Cathy: It's great? Can I keep it or would you like to keep it?
Amanda: Keep it.
Teacher Cathy: You wanna keep it?
Amanda: No you.
Teacher Cathy: Oh. You want me to keep it. Wonderful. Should I ...
So, after I write the note on there for the children, they get to choose whether they would like for me to keep it or if they'd like to take it home.
Very good counting Ruby. Thank you. What can I say about your counting?
Ruby: Good counting.
Teacher Cathy: Good counting Ruby. Would you like to keep it?
Teacher Cathy: Yes? Here you go. You can go put it in your mailbox.
