## Back to Remote Learning!

We hope you had a safe and Happy Halloween! It looks like we will be remote learning again this week. We are so impressed with how engaged most of our friends have been during online learning. We are going to try and use break out rooms for small group learning this week. It is brand new to us, so please be patient. If it doesn't work, we will then have to assign different googlemeets for each group during our center time, which will take some time to get used to. We just want to make sure that we are meeting the needs of all of our children during learning and meeting in small groups is the way to do it.

## Our learning last week..

This week our class read stories and will be reading stories about how tools help us learn. Your child learned and will learn about different tools and what they are used for.

We learned and will continue practicing the vocabulary words: tools, discover, fetch, rumble, and defeated. Our sight word is "a" and we will focus on the letter Pp.

In Math, we worked on decomposing numbers with totals up to 10. We wrote numerals 1-10 in order. We learned how to write the numbers and use the numeral to represent a quantity.

## A PEEK AT OUR LEARNING THIS WEEK.....

This week our class will be focusing on the shapes they see in nature and in our neighborhood. Children will also be reading about the shapes they see around them.

Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we will be practicing.

Word Workout

• Vocabulary: materials, nature Invite your child to hunt for shapes found in nature or on materials. Then invite your child to draw pictures of each item.
• My Words to Know

High-Frequency Word: like Write the word like on paper and have your child trace it. Then say sentences and have your child write like each time you say the word.

Category Words: shapes Say simple riddles that include different shape words. Have your child guess each object.

Phonics: t Invite your child to play a game of “I Spy.” Say sentences and have your child find objects whose names begin or end with the letter t, such as I spy a table. I spy a pot.

In math we will be working on one more and one less.

In Science, we will continue learning about severe weather.

Book orders have been shipped. I will be contacting you to see if you would like to come to the school and pick them up or if you want me to hold onto them until we come back to school in person.

Flash Cards:

Please use the flashcards that were sent home daily. If your child knows the letter, have them tell you the sound each letter makes. This will help with sounding out words.
