Five Fabulous Days!

We completed our first full week of school and are getting to know each other better. Here are some things we did this week:

  • Practiced handwriting strokes and properly writing our vowels and some numerals;
  • Counted and practiced 'cross counting' individually and with friends;
  • Built 'stamina' for Reader's Workshop in Reading to Self;
  • Learned to use Wikki Stix for Reader's Workshop in Working With Words;
  • Practiced following our classroom rules and 'listening and obeying' to honor God;
  • Played a name game and graphed the letters in our names for Math;
  • Learned to use finger spaces between words when writing a sentence;
  • Practiced 'special sounds' of short a, e, i, o and u;
  • Read some great books!
  • Learned to work in cooperative groups to reach a goal and win a prize! (Hooray for the Green Group, who won the competition this week!)
