Turkey Tom

On Monday we will read the book "Turkey Trouble." The turkey in this book disguises himself so he doesn't become Thanksgiving dinner! Your child will bring home his/her own Turkey to disguise and bring back to school!

What did we learn this week?

Reading: We did some non-fiction research on owls, bats, and spiders. The students ended the week with a fun project to demonstrate his/her learning.

Writing: I continued modeling the the writing process. (Think, Draw, Say and Test, Clap and Count, Write) The students are still working on the "who" and "did what." I drew my picture ahead of time and the students had to guess what my story was about. This week the students continued drawing lines for words in their sentences followed by beginning and ending sounds in words. We are still working on clapping and counting our words to create lines and write what sounds we hear.

Phonics: We continued working on beginning sounds with various activities.

We also learned the poem "5 Little Pumpkins." We learned two new high frequency words; "said" and "on."

Math: We continued to subitize in math. Subitize is when you see a group of objects and can tell me how many without counting 1 to 1. We also learned some new math games.
