Week of November 9-13
What A Fun Week!
Tuesday-What a busy Tuesday! Mrs. Joyner visited our classroom for her weekly guidance lesson. She introduced the term "bucket fillers". Ask your child to share ways that he or she can be a "bucket filler" at home and at school. We also began our Guided Reading Groups! The students really seemed to enjoy it. We will have reading groups Monday through Thursday. Please read and sign the text copy each night. Also, please practice the sight words nightly. Also, please return the books. Thanks! We also began using Raz Kids on the laptops today. The kids loved it! There is more information coming home in your child's Tuesday folder next week.
Wednesday-Veteran's Day! We created, read, and circled sight words in a Veteran's Day book. We also created Veteran's Day cards to for a first grade teacher to give to her father. Her father will distribute to the Naval ships and Pentagon.
Thursday-In math, we began our measurement unit. We read Measuring Penny by Loreen Leedy. This books discusses different ways to measure using different measuring tools. We went outside and collected a leaf. We observed it, measured it, and identified the color of the leaf. So fun! In writing, we went on a observation walk around our room to notice things we see. Then we generated a list of all the things we saw.
Friday-Happy Friday! In math, we measured each others shoes using cubes. We also read our non-fiction Let's Find Out about Veteran's Day. We also did a fun craft where students created ears of corn. We will hang these up in our room.
