Monday

Today we wrote about the month of November. We talk about what we are thankful for and then drew pictures and wrote about it. These are hanging in the hallway for all to see!

Tuesday

Today we learned about Veteran's day. We watched a short video clip (see below) and then made pictures and cards to give to veterans. Ms. Miller, a first grade teacher in our building, will be taking them to Navy veterans returning from deployment this weekend!

Wednesday

We are practicing number combinations during math time. The children used counting racks as one way to practice this skill. They were excited and surprised to see that numbers could be built in different ways. We will be starting a unit on measurement next week!

Thursday

We have starting learning about Native Americans, Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving this week. We watched a Brianpop Jr. video that explained this in a very kid friendly way. Remember to look below in the website section to see how to access Brainpop jr. from home. The students have also been having fun making items to wear for our kindergarten Thanksgiving feast on November 25th.

Friday

Today in the wonder lounge the students use a new drawing app on the iPads called Glow draw. They practiced drawing pictures and writing their name. Then they were able to choose an app that they had fun playing before. See the apps section of the newsletter to see what we have been playing.
