I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was enjoyable and restful! My daughter was home from university over the weekend, so it was busy at our house. I’m really looking forward to this week, we have some fun activities planned for the month of October.
We will be spending more time focusing on our fine motor skills. This week we will be talking about lines, all different kinds of lines and how to make them. All of this helps us to be stronger writers.
We have begun our “writers workshop” in earnest this month. At this point in the year we are talking about different ways to tell a story, and right now we focus on using pictures to tell our story. We are encouraged to use details and lots of colour so that our “readers” can read our stories.
Our sight words will continue to be see and the. And we will be reading a book about Spiders this week.
We will use our five senses to explore with apples, making apple sauce and having an apple taste test.
In math we are exploring the concepts of counting and breaking a number into two parts and naming those parts (5= 2 and 3, 1 and 4, etc).
Wednesday is the last day to bring in food for the food drive! Here’s to another great week!
