STARS Classroom News

May 9th - May 13th

What We Did Last Week...

We continued our fire safety theme. Our anchor book was Clifford the Firehouse Dog. We continued to learn about the parts of a firetruck and what equipment a firefighter uses. I asked yes/no and wh- questions about our book. We practiced stop, drop, and roll.

What Will Happen This Week...

We will start our camping theme this week. We will learn about all the fun things that you can do when you go camping. Our anchor book will be Maisy Goes Camping. Maisy and her friends have fun camping. When it's time to go to sleep in the tent they count each one and squeeze in.

Matt and Molly...

Our Matt and Molly story will be A Day at the Lake. Matt and Molly go to the lake. Matt goes fishing. He catches a little fish. Matt is still fishing and he catches a medium-sized fish. Then Matt catches a big fish. Matt catches Molly by mistake. I will ask Wh- and yes/no questions after we read the story.
