Quarters & Counting Coins
Skills Learned Last Week
This week we reviewed and practiced our syllables. We remember how to find the syllables in words and practiced counting the sounds, vowels and syllables in different words.
This week the students learned about giving and accepting writing ideas from others. We learned that others may have new, fresh ideas for us to write about that maybe we wouldn't have thought of writing about ourselves. We gave others ideas and chose some of those ideas to write about and practice our skills.
This week the students learned about sound and vibrations. We learned that all things that make sound vibrate, even our ears. We read books and learned about pitch and volume of sound. We also sorted sounds that are man made and sounds that are natural. Finally we spent some time listening for sounds inside and outside.
This week the students learned about the different types of places found on earth, the characteristics of those places and the animals that live there. We decided which places are where we live, close by or far away.
