In Reading this week, we worked on:
- the -ow chunk, as in cow continuing our ”hunks and chunks”, recognizing the sounds, forming the letters correctly, and thinking of words that include ow
- Beginning blends - bl, cl, sl, fl
- cause and effect
- putting story events in order
In Writing, we wrote about our favorite foods. We worked hard on remembering to include how it smells, tastes, and what it feels like on our tongues. We are working hard on remembering to put a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence, a period at the end, AND leaving a space between our words.
In Math, we have been working on:
- breaking numbers into tens and ones
- counting groups of ten and recognizing multiples of 10
- addition and subtraction of small numbers
We have also been learning about what is in the sky during the day and at night. We watched a video to learn more about Earth's moon and learned that there are other planets with more than one moon. We have also been reading books about the sun and moon this week. We had some extra time outside this morning on a very pretty day and spotted the Moon in the sky!
