Making Connections to the Text!
Ask me all about Readers Workshop! Today we talked all about how readers THINK while they read. One of the most important things we do is make connections with the characters and the text. It helps us understand the story better.
During Morning Meeting, our Word of the Day today was REMEMBER. When you remember something you keep it in your mind so you can think about it again later. We do this when we read....Ask our friends and family....What does this story remind you of?
Ask me all about my kindergarten sight words!!! We have been reading and writing them EVERY DAY!!!! We even took our very first spelling test (As part of our mid-year kindergarten assessments).
Today during our Reader's Workshop mini-lesson, we talked all about our sight words and how knowing them helps us read more fluently. It also helps us when we are being "chunky monkeys"....looking for known words inside big words (for example, looking, goes, comes)
We also played a special game on the smartboard. We loved it!!! Click on the link to play it at home!
Ask me all about art today! We learned all about an artist named Matisse! We started a special project and painted with Many different colors!!! Thank you Mrs. Sweet!!!!
Ask me all about taking good care of myself and my friends!!! Today we discussed how to stay healthy. We have a lot of friends home sick and we talked about making sure we wash our hands, cover our coughs and sneezes, and keep our hands out of our mouths and eye area.
We LOVE school!!!! And we want EVERYBODY to be here so we can learn and play together!!!!
