STARS Classroom News

October 12 - October 15

What we did last week

Last week we continued our anchor book, Tap the Magic Tree. We learned about what you can do with apples, and where you can find apples. We continued working on counting the apples. We also talked about the different colors of apples and learned big, medium, and small with apples and helmets (from Matt and Molly story )

What is happening this week

This week we will start our Pumpkin/Halloween theme! Our anchor book will be Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate. We will continue working on counting 1:1 and identifying/labeling numbers.

Matt and Molly

Three Pumpkins:

This week our Matt and Molly story is Three Pumpkins. We will continue working on Big, Medium, and Small. We will also work on identifying/labeling clothing, matching objects to pictures, and matching pictures to pictures. Look for a copy of the Matt and Molly story in your child's backpack :)
