Reading- We focused on the name, sound, and formation of p and j this week. We read about fall things like pumpkins and sunflowers. We practiced using clues from the title and cover to predict what the book is going to be about. We also worked on noticing the beginning sounds of words and figuring out what letter words should start with. We continued to play sound games to help us break apart and put sounds together which are essential skills for reading.
Writing- We learned about adding details this week with the book Not A Box. The kids worked on drawing carefully and adding details so others can tell what their writing is about.
Math: We continued building our number sense this week by exploring the 10 frame and playing games like Frogs in the Pond to count a variety of quantities and understand how quantities change when we add more. We worked on counting objects accurately in different arrangements rather than just in a straight line. We also learned about the attributes of rectangles.
Science/ Social Studies- We enjoyed a Mystery Science video about maple syrup. We took a field trip the the pumpkin patch and saw so many living and non living things. We learned more about fall.
