Hello all! First of all, I'd like to say that all the students did wonderful last week learning about different shapes and building their home using blocks! Everyone was creative and they had a great time with it! Thanks to the parents who have been working with students at home. Let's make sure to keep reviewing old material with our kids so their brains stay as sharp as our pencils!
This week, we are learning about different animals and correctly identifying them using descriptions. In our weekly Friday assessments to ensure students are learning the animals, students will work in groups of two or three in which one or two students are blind folded. The third student will pick a random card with a drawing of a certain animal and the name. The student will then have to describe the animal to the blindfolded children and the child has thirty seconds to guess the animal. For example, if a student pulls the card out that says dog, the child will describe the dog saying things like this animal is loyal and friendly and loves to be pet behind the ears and play fetch until the student(s) can guess that it's a dog.
Please review the animal worksheet I sent home in your child's folder and if you are able to include conversations about these animals during your time spent with your child, they'll be able to maximize their learning experience!
On Friday, we will be dressing up as our favorite animals, so please be sure to prepare your child for this! We will be crafting in class for this, but if your child needs further assistance, please ensure to make time for him/her!
Thank you for your cooperation and contact me with any questions!
