Weekly Wrap Up

Today was day 40 of school. This year is moving right along! The kids are growing every day and learning new things!

In Reading this week, we read Nature Spy and learned about what we can observe in nature if we look closely. We wrote about what we see in nature and learned some new vocabulary words. We also learned about proper nouns and used our names as examples. We are reading more regularly now that we have mastered more sounds. We started reading with partners this week.

In Math, we are working on numbers bigger than 10. We are showing them on 10s frames and practicing recognizing them and writing them. If you want to help your child at home, identifying numbers 11-20 is a great place to start! Writing numbers in paint or in shaving cream makes a fun way to practice!

In Science, we worked on living and nonliving things. We learned that living things breathe, move, grow and change, need food and water, and can make more like themselves. We wrote a class book about living and nonliving items. Each student wrote a page and we will assemble it and enjoy it in our class library throughout the year!

Next week, we are working on the letter P and our new sight words are we, my, like and or. We are working on main idea and words to describe. In math, we will continue working on numbers beyond 10 and identifying numbers all the way up to 100! In Science, we are starting our pumpkin study.
