We spent this week working on a variety of seasonal topics!
On Monday, we talked about traditions that our family has at Halloween. We found that our families all celebrate just a little bit differently!
We spent time talking about voting and what that means. We learned that voting is a way that groups pick or choose one option. We practice voting for our favorite snack and became informed voters by tasting chips and popcorn. We also read 3 books - Duck for President, Grace for President and Splat the Cat for President. We cast ballots for the book or character that we liked the best. We made a graph as we counted the ballots.
We will spend the next couple weeks before Thanksgiving finishing this chapter.
In reading, we are continuing to add letters to our knowledge base to help us sound out words. Our class is doing a fabulous job with our sight words - I am so proud! The books we are reading will begin to get a little longer, and I have been challenging them to spell simple words correctly. We have been practicing in small group to write words with 3 sounds. I started adding some words with 4 sounds this week for a few groups. They are really meeting the challenge!
Thank you for all the work you are doing with your children! I am seeing all the hard work in our classroom, and am looking forward to being able to share with you at Parent Teacher Conferences. Have a wonderful weekend!
