Weekly Wrap Up

This week, we learned about Martin Luther King Jr. We learned that he wanted everyone to be treated fairly, and we talked about what it means to be a good friend. We read "The Crayon Box That Talked," which is a short poem about crayons that didn't get along. At the end, they realized how important the other crayons are. We each colored our own crayon to hang in the hallway.

We also learned about maps this week. We talked about how maps represent real places and that there can be maps for small places or big places, like our world. We colored pictures of globes to show land and water.

 We played a game called "Land or Water." We spun the globe, and had to watch for where each person's finger landed, and called out land or water.

We read the book Me on the Map, the kids thought it was really interesting!

In Math, we have been working on decomposing numbers. This means we break the numbers into two groups. The kids are doing great! This gets us ready for addition and subtraction in the future.
We have used objects to break the numbers apart and record them. We will continue working on this next week with larger numbers up to 10.

In Reading next week, we are starting blends. I attached a chart to your newsletter today with the blends we will be working on. We will start learning them Monday!

Have a great weekend!
