Hard to believe this is the last full week of April! This year is flying by.
Pretty quick week this week, here’s what’s up:
We are beginning a study of the environment that should last until the end of the year. This will encompass planting seeds, going for nature walks, spring weather, and reading related books. I am really excited about this, I know it will be a lot of fun for all of us.
In Literacy we are sticking with our sight words said, he, she, me. We are also talking about the ending ‘ing’ and incorporating this more into our reading and writing.
In math we are making class number books to 1-4 (this week). Eventually we will have numbers up to 10. We will be looking at the various combinations of numbers to equal the given number. For example, for 4 some of us will make pages of 2+2, some pages of 1+3 and some 4+0. This is a great way to incorporate literacy and numeracy, and it is another concrete example of numbers.
You will notice no one has brought home guided reading book this week. That is because we are going to do some extra focus in the class around de-coding words (figuring out new words), and I feel it is best for this week to go through the books each day with the children. Next week we will be sending books home again.
