Constitution Day was this week, so we read the preamble using a book by David Catrow called We the Kids. You can see a video of this book here. We talked about how the Constitution sets forth the rules for our country. We talked about rules we have at school, at home, and in the community.
In Reading, you will see the reading bags come home on Tuesday again. We are going to start working with one letter a week now, and our first letter in Mm. We will focus on the sound and listen for M in words, both at the beginning and the end.
In Writing, we are working on completing sentences. You should have seen a couple writing pages come home this week. Students completed those on their own! They did not copy the word the wrote to finish the sentence. Some students are writing a string of letters to represent their word, and that's ok right now! As we learn more sounds and letters, their words will start to look more like the words we recognize. I do not focus on spelling words correctly, but rather writing the sounds they hear.
In our Science and Social Studies time next week, we will be studying apples. This is one of my favorite weeks. We will learn about Johnny Appleseed, how apples grow, and what we do with apples.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
