This week we read a story called The Little School Bus. Students made text to self connections as they discussed and wrote about the different ways they get to school like the characters in the story. We worked on so many skills this week. Students learned about covers, titles, authors, illustrators, and characters. They practiced retelling and sequencing. We also practices one-to-one correspondence. While reading a few other fun stories this week, students made lots of text to self and text to text connections.
In math, we finished our unit on numbers 1-5. The students took their first test Friday and did fantastic. We also did work at our math stations. We will call this time BUILD in a few weeks as the students get the routine down. During this time, students made ABB patterns, sorted by color, practiced color words, made designs with pattern blocks, and practiced writing numbers on magic erase boards and paper.
