Weekly Wrap Up

We had a good week - we worked really hard and had a lot of fun!
We finished chapter 2 for math. Test scores were posted on Power School yesterday. We were working on numbers from 6-10. We worked on representing the numbers with objects and on tens frames. We also worked on putting the numbers in order.

In Reading, we worked on compare and contrast. The kids were awesome at describing ways that things were different or the same! We read a nonfiction book called Flowers and learned about the different elements of an informational book, like the Table of Contents and Headers. Our letter was Aa and we worked on reading more books independently. I encourage you to read to your child every night and to also have them read to you! More of the books from their reading bags will be sent home to keep this week.

In honor of Columbus Day, we went exploring! We found a leaf and then used our senses to describe it.

 We read a book called In 1492 and talked about who Christopher Columbus was. Students made their own explorer - named after themselves and Columbus!

Next week, we are starting numbers beyond 10. We will start with numbers up to 20, but then work with hundreds charts to identify numbers up to 100! A list of the standards we are covering was attached to your weekly newsletter that came home on Friday. In Reading, we are working with the letter Ss and adding the sight words but and on. In Science, we are going to learn about living and nonliving things.

I am really enjoying this group - they love to have fun and they work so hard! Hope you have a great weekend!
