What we are learning!


In mathematics this month we will be learning about heights and lengths of people and other objects ( V.D.1.). Students will be able to be able to tell the difference in the heights of students and line them up in a row from smallest to tallest. My students will also be able to complete this same task with other objects such as blocks, etc.


During class circle time, we are reading the book The First Thanksgiving by Linda Hayward. After the story is read, the students in groups will be retelling or re-enacting this story (III.D.1.). Students will be able to do this in any way that they choose.


The students will be learning about owls just like our very own Otis! Students will be able to identify and describe the characteristics of them (VI.B1.). Students will then draw and color their favorite owl making sure to include owl characteristics.
