Week Of September 30th
Highlights From Last Week....
Wow, it is October already!! We are finally starting to settle into a routine. It is amazing to see how much progress we have made within just a few weeks.
This week our class focused on ways in which friends get along with each other. Children read stories about how friends share, take turns, and resolve conflicts, or problems, with one another.
The children learned the words friend and problem and focused on the word "the". We learned all about the letter M.
In Math, we worked on decomposing numbers to 3 and learned that 1+2=3. We also started looking at numbers 0, 1, 2, and 3. We learned how to write the numbers and used the numeral to represent a quantity.
In Science, we are learning about the weather.
