Reading- We focused on the name, sound, and formation of e and r this week. We practiced pointing to each word when we read and noticing where the words are and where the spaces are. We continued to play sound games to help us break apart and put sounds together which are essential skills for reading.
Writing- Reviewed our checklist for writing and continued practicing all the skill we learned so far.
Math: We practiced counting backwards this week and understanding how quantities change with the song 5 Green and Speckled Frogs. We also counted backwards with candy and ate each piece until zero. We learned about circles and continued exploring the 5 frame.
Science/ Social Studies- We enjoyed a Mystery Science video about who invented the alphabet. Nurse Carol came to teach us about germs and washing our hands. Our cool tool was about service learning and we watched videos of projects from previous years.
