Ms. Gleason's Class ~ We began the geometry module this week. This module is full of new vocabulary for the children. They have already learned a few - point, line segment, line, and ray. Next week we learn angle, vertex, acute angle, right angle, obtuse angle, perpendicular lines, intersecting lines and parallel lines. See how many of those words your child can tell you about! After that we will learn how to use a protractor to measure and draw angles.
PAWS ~ #9 is due Monday. The lion share of the class has brought home all the parts of their work to show you and then get an adult signature on the final copy.
Small Groups ~ The kids are really enjoying getting to know the main characters of the books!
Read Aloud ~ We are making our way through The Underneath. I read some really sad parts today. I reassured the kids that karma does come back for Gar Face, the evil character. I know it's pushing it, but I would love to finish the book before February break.
Picture Book Friday ~ Finn read us a sweet book called Delivery Bear. The kids were able to come up with a few appropriate themes like don't judge a book by it's cover, never give up, and be true to you. We need a boy to read next Friday!!!
