We had a busy week - so busy, would you believe I forgot to take pictures? With extra music practices, the time that was in the classroom, we were very focused. There is a Christmas Program album with photos of our class on the East Website.
In Math, we wrapped up our 3 dimensional shape study and began position words. The kids are doing wonderfully with words like in front of, behind, below, above, and next to. This will be our last chapter before Christmas. After Christmas, we jump back into numbers and begin the foundations for addition and subtraction.
In Reading, we are working hard on retelling. Students need to be able to tell everything from a story they remember in order. They should include things like character's names and major events. We are reading a lot of versions of The Gingerbread Man and using those to retell. Today, we compared the original story with The Gingerbread Cowboy.
We will be doing some Christmas themed activities next week, and continuing our Christmas Around the World Unit.
Short and sweet - hope you have a wonderful weekend!
