About Our Week...

This week was all about "The Mitten" by Jan Brett. The boys had a great time talking about the animals that fit themselves in the tiny mitten and LOVED when they all popped out! We watched the story on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDOzlaOc3Us) as well as read the book. We completed a variety of sequencing activities to check for comprehension. We also used the book to work on ordinal number. Below is a photo of our own mittens that include a drawing of the animal we chose to put in our mitten!

Next Week...

On Monday we will talk about Groundhog's Day. During the rest of the week we are going to discuss planets and the solar system. I have noticed that many of our students have taken an interest in the planets and thought this would be a fun unit to discuss!

Out and About....

Today we took a trip Bowling and to McDonalds. We had a great time!
