MRS. SINGER RETURNS!
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
After celebrating the end of our Poetry unit, we read "Gossie" by Olivier Dunrea and made our own emergent readers retelling the story. We are learning to look for word endings such as '-ing', 's', and 'ed' to help us decode tricky words. We are also focusing on becoming more fluent readers so we don't sound like robots. Finally, we are paying close attention to punctuation so we know how to read with expression. Ask your child what happened to Gossie's bright red boots and how Gossie felt in the story.
In Words Their Way, we are all working on identifying digraphs (sh, ch, wh, th) and blends (st, bl, dr). We talk about the letters being "best friends" who love to be together. With digraphs, sometimes we only hear one of the letter sounds (wh, wr) and sometimes the letters work togther to make a completely new sound (sh, th, ch). With blends, we can hear both consonant sounds together. The kids are having fun searching for best friends in their books and shared readings!

WE LOVE MATH GAMES!
After each player chooses a ball, spin the spinner to see if the greater or less number is the winner!
EGGS ARE HATCHING
Spring is here in math centers even if it's snowing outside!
FEEDING HUNGRY FROGS
Our frog loves to eat flies and spiders. How many insects does he eat in all?
WE LOVE MATH GAMES!
We are observing and learning about spring. The past two weeks we have been exploring weather. We are learning how to read a thermometer and have explored the role wind plays in our weather. We LOVED making wind socks and taking advantage of our windy weather to learn about the wind's direction! We have painted spring murals complete with green trees and baby birds. We are fantastic artists!
