Our new math basket rotations are becoming our favorite part of the day! First, groups must complete their "dinner tubs" (or activities they must do) and then they can complete their "dessert tubs" or activities they would like to do! We are working on money match up (recognizing coins), place value with apples, and completing 100s chart puzzles to work on number order!
Read to Self
We have re-introduced Read to Self during Daily 5 and we are now building our Stamina!! We learned Stamina is doing something for a long period of time without getting tired or giving up. Reading can be hard, but we are building stamina to independently read up to 20 minutes!
We have done so much this week! One of the stories we read was "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes". In this story, we learned that nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes! Mrs. Saxon created an alter-ego of a "friend" named Miss. Take. This teacher made ALL KINDS of mistakes. Later, we learned that this teacher was Mrs. Saxon. Thank goodness the kids still love their teacher even if she makes mistakes. And their teacher will always love them too!
