October 28 - November 1
Some words that begin with "C" are: cat, cake, can, car, Cambrey, and Chloe
In art, we made candy corn using torn pieces of paper. They turned out very cute and it was cool that both "candy" and "corn" begin with the letter C.
Today we practiced writing capital C. We noticed that if you close up the letter C, it can become the letter O. We also noticed that if you close up the letter C and then come straight back down, you can make a lowercase a.
Tuesday is the day we always get to watch the Sesame Street video of our letter of the week. We loved the song that Cookie Monster sings this week!
We worked more on our "teaching books" during Writer's Workshop.
This afternoon, we all got to reach inside of a pumpkin and scoop out some of the seeds. Tomorrow we will complete a 5 senses chart about the pumpkin.
- Main Idea
During center time, our education specialists took us to do a math assessment. It was a lot like the reading one we do for AIMSWEB, but instead of letters and sounds we had to do things with numbers and other math skills.
For math, we colored the design made with shapes that Mrs. Chohon had attached to last week's interactive newsletter. Then we did puzzles while Mrs. Chohon did some math assessments about matching a number to a set of objects.
When we were done, we got to eat a pumpkin cookie! EVERYONE loved it! Then we completed the 5 senses chart.
In reading today, we listened for /k/ at the end of words.
In math, we used pennies to buy items form our pretend store. We practiced buying two items using all ten cents.
This afternoon we had our fall party! We had lots of fun thanks to all parents who sent supplies and came to help!
For reading, we practice making words with the letters we've learned. We used letter magnets of those letters and found out we can make a LOT of words! You could do the same activity at home with pieces of paper as letter tiles.
During center time, we got to see the Middle School Honor Choir boys sing some songs. They were really good! However, that meant we did not have guided reading groups. So Mrs. Chohon is sending home the decodable reader for you to read.
Set Your Clocks Back!
Looking Forward to Next Week!
