CtR Classroom #112
What is happening in Mrs. Nester's Class?
So, for this week, the words will be numbers 1-8 (the - you).
Additionally, you will find a reading log in the "pink" pocket. Please read with your child and fill in the name and let them color the appropriate monkey.
Math homework will come home soon, in the meantime I am sending home "dot math". Please have your child cut the squares apart and then start using them as flashcards. The faster they can recognize how many dots are on each one, the faster that image will stay with them.
What's Going On In Class
Science :: In science we're talking about what science is and what a scientist does. We've begun to build vocabulary like "inquiry" and "observation".
Social Studies :: We're looking at what is a citizen and what makes a good citizen.
Religion :: We've begun the creation story and have been looking at what are some of our favorite creations from God.
Language Arts :: Our focus this week has been nouns. What are they and sorting them in their appropriate categories. Then, we used our journals to come up with sentences that include the nouns we discovered.
We spent this week playing with letters. What letters make what sounds? What happens if I put some letters together? What if I put some numbers in there too, is it still a word? In writing, we've started working in our journal, mainly just to let them get the feel for it. We'll focus more on writing and the conventions of it soon.
