Falling For Learning!
Emergent Readers: Finishing Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
Writer's Workshop: We are beginning a new genre: Lists! We think of categories, and then 3 items that belong to that list. The list genre in past years, has elevated student's confidence in stretching words because it is a temporary shift away from sentences. I encourage you to have your children write lists at home as well!
This was a week of review.
Math: Counting by 10's to 100, recognition of numbers 0 - 20, and number writing 0 - 10.
- On Monday, we had the Greenburg Nature Center Educators come in to give us a hands-on learning experience with different creatures. They brought in Ginger the Ball Python, Johnny the Chinchilla, and Taco the Box Turtle. It was a lot of fun!
- Leaves! We went on a fall leaf hunt Wednesday. We found many different varieties, sizes, and colors. We used a non-fiction book as a resource to identify and classify the leaves. Your children brought in leaves from home to add to our class poster. We made leaf rubbings as an extension activity.
Social Studies: Rules at home. An interdisciplinary study using Where The Wild Things Are.
Star of the Week: This week we learned all about Eesha!
Next Week's Star: Balaaj Babar
