A Reader Asks… PowerWalks and Fundamental 5 Support

No Comments

A LYS Principal asks, SC, Is there a site or a group of contacts where we, as people that are using Power Walks and attempting to implement The Fundamental 5, can go to share ideas and/or ask questions to those who are also doing one or both? Specifically, I am looking for some advice on helping my kindergarten teachers with lesson framing in a way that their students (who can’t read) will understand and begin to learn the process of lesson framing. Any suggestions would be great. SC Response As of now, there is not a specific site devoted to PowerWalks or the Fundamental 5. However, we have been getting more and more requests for a support site and a regular conference. In the interim, you can follow the LYS Daily Blog (www.lysnation.com) or the LYS Twitter Feed (www.twitter.com/lysnation). To answer your question, Pre-Kinder and Kindergarten teachers often use pictures in their lesson frames. They also write them in very concrete and student friendly language and post them prominently in the classroom, as the upper grades do. But the PK and Kindergarten teacher is much more animated and overt as he or she reads the lesson frame to the class and refers back to the frame more frequently than an upper grade teacher. Presenting and reviewing the frame often becomes a reading exercise, much like the teacher reading from a book is a reading exercise. Hope this helps and that everything is going well. Think. Work. Achieve.
