What did we learn this week?

Reading: We read some fiction and non-fiction books about apples, pumpkins, leaves, and animals. The students practiced the difference between a fiction and non fiction story.

Writing: I continued modeling the the writing process. (Think, Draw, Say and Test, Clap and Count, Write) The students are still working on the "who" and "did what." I drew my picture ahead of time and the students had to guess what my story was about. This week the students continued drawing lines for words in their sentences followed by beginning and ending sounds in words.

Phonics: We began working on beginning sounds in words. We learned some new center games and did some worksheet activities.

We also learned the poem "Hickory Dickory Dock." We learned two new high frequency words; "up," and "did."

Math: We continued to subitize in math. Subitize is when you see a group of objects and can tell me how many without counting 1 to 1. We did some flashcards to subitize. We also used cubes and five frames and played a subitizing game.
