Centers: I introduced Leap Pads this week. The kids did well with it for our listening center! It offers a more interactive format and helps them with each sound of the words.
In Math this week, we worked with shapes quite a bit. We explored with triangles and squares and did different activities with them.
We did a new strategy called Mix Pair Share. During the Mix part, students dance around the room. When the music stops, they Pair with the student they are closest to. This time, the Share time meant they had to tell their partner what their shape was like - "I have a small green triangle."
In Science, we worked on the 5 senses this week. We read several different books and did activities with each sense. We played I Spy for seeing, we listened to sound clips for hearing, we used touch bags for touching, we tasted skittles for taste, and we smelled my room freshener for smelling.

Next week is a short week. Monday, we will be celebrating Columbus Day and then focusing on fire prevention the rest of the week. I will also start asking the kids for their address and phone number, so please work with them on that! We have new sight words this week (have and is) and our letter will be Aa.
Remember, there is no school for your kids on Tuesday, as all the teachers in the district have inservice training. Because of this, please return your child's library book on Monday. I will also send home reading bags on Monday, instead of Tuesday.
As always, please contact me with any questions!
