A short but full week!
Reading: We practiced the sound, name, and formation of c and o this week as well as reviewing all the letters from previous weeks. We discussed our favorite book characters and read lots of Pete the Cat books. We learned that we can find new books to read that have our favorite characters in them.
Writing: We worked on planning our true stories and drawing all the parts of our stories. We are writing our name at the top of the paper and coloring in neatly. Some children are starting to label their pictures with letters or words!
Math: We practiced describing shapes and learning what makes a triangle a triangle. We learned the words vertex and vertices. We played Top it to practice counting and comparing numbers. The kids have also been playing ST math and problem solving with JiJi the penguin who is very tricky!
Science/Social studies: We learned about our school pledge and song. We also had a visit from Mrs. Naylor who is the daughter of Beulah Ralph, the wonderful person our school was named for!
