WHAT ARE WE LEARNING?

Reader's Workshop

Tuesday, we began the week with My "n" book by Jane Belk.


Tuesday, we finished reading Miss MIngo and the Fire Drill by Jamie Harper and Ninja, Ninja, Never Stop by Todd Tuell.

Social Studies

Upon reading Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill, we had our very own school wide fire drill! Miss Mingo and her class really prepared us because it could not have gone any smoother! The class did an amazing job!

Math

Wednesday, the number that we discussed was 7, "straight across and down from Heaven, that is how you make a seven".


We wanted to give you a heads up that the class does these sheets 100% by themselves! They are simply given a sheet of stickers at each table and are to put the correct amount of stickers, counters, etc. on the sheet. We will check them when they are finished and have them make any corrections needed! Their one to one correspondence is getting better everyday and they are going to rock their assessments when that time comes!

Science

Wednesday, we read Whose Nest by Lynette Evans. This book takes you through the life of eight different animals and their nests. It is a fun lift-the-flap book that had the class on their toes with excitement and really had them use their thinking skills to guess "Whose Nest" they were learning about!


Afterwards, the class went on a nature walk to find items that they would use for a nest. We found an actual nest that was uninhabited and we noticed that the items that many of the students had collected were the same that the bird had used for it's nest!


Thursday, the class finished their nests and now it is YOUR turn to see "whose nest" is whose! You will find these hanging in the class. All you have to do is lift the flap to see if your guess was correct!


We finished up our nest unit by reading The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman. We found that Mr. and Mrs. Bird's search for a "better" nest led them to some very interesting places.

Writer's Workshop

We are continuing with our "frog jump" series in our teaching order.


This week started off handwriting with the letter "N". We only have one more letter in this series and then will be moving on to a new series of letters. We always have the students start at the top where the dot is located. They then must "frog jump" back to the top to finish the letter. This is a great way to review at home with he way we are instructing them to write their letters.
