First & Second Grade
Reading & Phonics
The purple group read the story, A House is a House for Me. The book describes houses for things that you don't necessarily think about. Our learning point made us think about our background knowledge to help us better understand thinking about houses in a different way. We looked for compound words in the story and wrote them in our spelling journal.
The green group got started with some sentence sequencing and short a words.
We all learned about syllables in words and how to count them by putting our hand under our chin or clapping out the syllables when saying the words, and everyone practiced hand signals for short vowels.
During our math block this week we practiced addition and some subtraction math facts by playing different bingo games. We also used pattern blocks to sequence and matching games for identifying shapes.
Social Studies & Writing
At the end of the day on Friday, we teamed up with our kindergarten, third, and fourth grade friends and participated in a scavenger hunt outside.
