This Week's Learning

This week we will read the story How Do Dinosaurs Go To School? and will do many fun dinosaur activities. We will discuss the difference between herbivores and carnivores, learn about fossils, and create a fun dinosaur glyph.

We will also practice identifying nouns that name people and places. We will focus on identifying and naming the letters: p, q, r, s, t.

In Math we just finished Ch. 1 where we practiced indentifying and writing numbers 0-5. In Ch. 2 we will compare numbers 0-5. We will use the terms more than, less than, and equal to compare numbers and sets of objects.
