•Counting forwards and backwards (1-10)

We also made our first graph this week about "Our Eyes". We graphed the color of our eyes and had a lot of fun learning how to collect data and read that information

Science

We have been exploring colors and mixing colors with food coloring and play doh! We've discussed primary colors and how they mix to make secondary colors! We've also been learning more about our 5 Senses. So far we've explored our sense of sight and sense of hearing. Next week we will focus on our sense of smell and sense of touch.

Writer's Workshop

We are learning how authors generate ideas for their stories. We are learning to visualize and make pictures in our heads about the stories we want to "wake up" and write about. We use literature each day to help us learn how real authors create stories. We practice stretching sounds and labeling our pictures. As illustrators we try to use a variety of colors in our pictures to make them more detailed.
