STARS Classroom News

May 2nd - May 6th

What We Did Last Week..

We stared our new theme, Fire Safety. Our anchor book was Clifford the Firehouse Dog. The children enjoyed learning about fire trucks, fire fighters, and all the things that go along with it. We talked about stop, drop and roll. The children will have fun practicing these three steps.

What Will Happen This Week...

We will continue our fire safety theme. Our anchor book will remain the same; Clifford the Firehouse Dog. We will continue to learn about the parts of a firetruck and what equipment a firefighter uses. I will ask yes/no and wh- questions about our book. The fire department is coming to visit on Friday. The students will get to see some of the things that we are learning about.

Matt and Molly...

We will continue our Matt and Molly Time to Clean Up. It's a funny story about Matt sneezing when he tries to clean up. I will continue to ask yes/no and wh- questions about our Matt and Molly story. We will act out the story this week. We will sequence the four parts of our story.
