These kiddos are so cute, and we did so many fun activities that I took way too many pictures. :) Enjoy!
This week, we worked on school rules and routines. Students practiced working in groups doing literacy and math centers. We also read many beginning of the year stories, like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Chester Raccoon and the Big Bad Bully. Students learned about authors and illustrators, found the problem in the story, and compared/contrasted stories. This is a very smart group of students! We also started singing our Leap Frog alphabet song. The students were having so much fun learning the sounds and movements. See if they can sing it for you. Our Word Wall Words so far are I, a, am, boy, and girl. The students have begun writing sentences using these words and their names. They are so proud of themselves! In math, we began our first unit on reading, counting, and writing numbers 0-5. Although this is easy for some, it is the perfect unit to learn how the math program works and how to use the math pages. Please complete the homework by the end of this week as our unit test is coming up. :)
