Elm Class Update
New York News Compass
This week in the Elm Class (as told by Elm students)
We had exploration with teacher helper.
We have a new recess where we get to play with toys.
Some kids started making stuffed animals.
We finished our compliment.
We added new materials to small worlds.
At lunch we can eat with the Pine Class.
We got new gathering spots and new places at lunch.
Making jumps of these friendly numbers with ease will be our focus until winter break.
Try this type of counting at home. Start from any number that is not zero and add on tens: 3, 13, 23, 33, 43, 53....
In this coming week we will make our writing even better by revising and editing our chapters. We will also publish and add non-fiction text features such as diagrams, photographs, and a table of contents.
When you read together, you can point out new information. Notice what surprises you and celebrate the gift of learning something new when you read non-fiction.
Next week we will focus on building vocabulary when we read non-fiction or the lingo of a specific topic.
We have exploration time from 2:50-3:30. Please let us know if you would ever like to join us to lead a center or support some of the children's work.
Thank you Mark Morris Dance Center
We will end our series of dance classes tomorrow, Monday, December 14th from 2:40-3:20. This final class will be open to family members. Please come by if you would like to join us.
