What We Are Learning This Week

This week we will continue Unit 6 with a focus on Changes/Never Changes-My world. Students will observe and discuss the seasons.

Our main goals for this week:

Language: Students will be able to identify the letter E and things that begin with the letter. Students will also learn to identify and write their names.

Math-Students will extend what they have learned about sorting by attributes of size. We will review patterns AB, ABC and ABB. In addition we will review counting to 30, colors, shapes.

Science/ Technology-Student will continue their observations of things that change and never change around them. We will be working with the 4 season in the year. We are discussing how trees change, what we wear during the seasons, and how the air feels.

Social Skill Program-Second Step

Our concept this week is to ask for what you need or want, face the person you are asking and use a respectful voice.

It is important for children to be able to ask for help when they need it. For many children, this requires speaking up in a strong , respectful way. Speaking up in this way (being assertive) also helps children get along with other. We want to encourage children to face people they are speak in order to help listener know that they need help and are being addressed.
