Mrs. Weiser's Weekly Newsletter
We had such a fun week finishing up our author study on Jan Brett! We really grew to love her writing and her illustrations that were so full of color and detail. The Snow Bears was a great book for us to explore this week. As we read, we knew the story sounded familiar, and quickly realized it was just like Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We practiced sequencing after reading The Snow Bears. Some of the other Jan Brett stories that we read were The Mitten, The Hat, and The Gingerbread Baby. On Thursday we took a class vote to see which story everyone liked the best, and The Gingerbread Baby was the biggest hit! After casting our vote we actually created a Jan Brett paper doll! We didn't want to only draw her, but also add details that made Jan Brett unique. So, we added pencils, art pallets, animals, and winter clothing to show all the things Jan loved.
In math this week we came addition. However, this time we learned about various strategies to help us find the sum of an addition sentence faster and easier. Some of the strategies we learned were count on, add zero, doubles and doubles plus one. We loved reinforcing our addition strategies with many fun games such as Walk the Plank, Addition War, Bump and Kindergarten Yahtzee!
