What we learned this week...

  • Language Arts: Throughout the week, students will learned about Christopher Columbus as we read the big book In 1492 and discussed nonfiction and realistic fiction titles. Students continued working with nouns as we practiced identifying people, places, things, and animals from various stories about Christopher Columbus.
  • Phonics: Students learned all about the shape, sound, and use of the uppercase and lowercase letters K and L. We will be working with these letters throughout the week as we practice manipulating and listening for their sounds throughout our weekly reading.
  • Sight Words: This week, students learned two new sight words; a and to. Students will practice reading, writing, and identifying these words in our weekly writing and reading activities.
  • Mathematics: Students were introduced to their newest vocabulary; six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. Students will then practice writing their numbers as they learn multiple ways to show, model, create, and mimic.
  • Social Studies: This week, students will learned all about farms as we prepared for our field trip on Wednesday, October 12th to Cherry Crest Farms. Students made predictions as to what they saw on the farm and any new activities or things they may learn.

Cherry Crest Farms
