If You Read us a story...

...we'll want to read and write some more! This week we explored the books in the Laura Numeroff series beginning with If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, We made mouse puppets that came home earlier this week. We heard many more books in the series through read alouds and listening center. At the end of the week, we wrote our own story beginning with the prompt, "If You Give...". It is our newest class book and will begin coming home to families soon!

We are studying 3D or solid shapes now. We are learning about spheres, cones, cubes, and cylinders. We are comparing their properties and surfaces. Look for some examples of these shapes around your house with your child.
