Here's what's hip-hop and happening in our room! Week 39

Reading and Writing

With us completing our reading and writing curriculum last week, we dove into fairy tales this week! We explored The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Three Little Pigs, and Jack and the Beanstalk. The kids really enjoyed comparing and contrasting the story and the fractured story that we read with each one. Some were really funny and some didn’t really follow the story at all! We also had a really good conversation on Friday when we wrote about stealing. In some versions of Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack is the thief, but in some, the Giant is! Our writing prompt was “Is it ok to steal?” We then had a great discussion about if it is ok and what makes stealing stealing. Next week we will look at Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Sleeping Beauty!

Friendly Reminders and Fun News

What a fun day at the zoo! And man was the zoo a zoo! Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a fun day! Did you know there are Arctic Foxes at Como Zoo? I swear I have never seen them, but the kids tell me they are really there!

Track and Field Day: WHAT A BLAST! Wow, did we have a lot of fun. I don't know about the kiddos, but when I got home, I was TIRED! Be sure to check out all the pictures in the Track and Field folder in Google Drive :)

BOOK BAGS: We are all done with book bags for the year. PLEASE look for them at home as well as any books that went with them. I am still missing a lot bags and books. I greatly appreciate it!
