The Buzz in Room 615!
One of our math stations this week was bowling! Students got the chance to roll a ball and try to knock down pins. That student, along with the rest of the group, then had to record a corresponding subtraction problem.
Most mornings until the fun run, Kindergarten will gather in the cafeteria to see how much money we've raised per class per lap so far, and to see what our next challenge is. The kids really enjoyed this one, and wanted me to remind you to sign them up for the fun run and to get some pledges so that they can win prizes. :)
After reading the book Chicks and Salsa, we all got to sample four kinds of salsa. Peach was by far the favorite!
The Week Ahead
Other than that, we should have a pretty normal week with some great learning occurring!
Writing: I've been saying we're starting persuasive writing for two weeks now, but we have had such a crazy schedule and so many other things to write about and do that we haven't gotten there yet. We HOPEFULLY will be getting started with that this week now. :)
Reading: We will be continuing to learn about the importance of characters and how to make inferences about what they're thinking, feeling, and doing based on facial expression, actions, and words.
Math: To continue our addition and subtraction fluency, we'll be doing various activities to decompose numbers 0-10. Allowing students to practice breaking numbers up multiple times will allow them to become math fact masters!
Science: Our quest for learning all about living things continues this week, with more discussions about what plants and animals needs and the differences between the two.
